What people are saying about Parsnip

I struggle with confidence issues in learning how to cook, more than anything else. This is super helpful. Please keep up the great work!

I like how I can learn facts about food in spurts. I don’t mind going through lessons I might be ‘too advanced’ for. I love the jokes and how friendly the app is!

I think what has stuck to me the most is all these little bits of knowledge, tips and tricks that I have been wondering my entire adulthood life about and never knew how to do. Seriously one of the more entertaining apps I’ve used in years- and I’m now more naturally drawn to cooking.

I learned how to make really good meatballs! And it's not just that I learned a recipe, I actually learned how to cook, and why the recipe asks for the things it does, along with helpful tips like "making marina sauce is a messy process, you will have sauce shoot everywhere, so you better put on a lid."

Parsnip will tell you how to look for the right produce, special kitchen techniques, etc, and it achieves all of this while still being approachable to novices. It’s encouraging and sweet and I have thoroughly enjoyed using this app!

I love how this app takes you step by step through shopping for ingredients to how to handle utensils and tools. I feel more confident in the kitchen than ever before. I’m looking forward to seeing more recipes added, I hope I can contribute some of my family’s favorites!

Had failed to make Shakshuka in the past several times. Learning all the pieces that go into it changed the experience entirely. All in the first day,
