Food Network's In The Kitchen App at Eats and Apps Bash

Last week was social media week in New York City -- a chance for New Yorkers to learn about the latest trends in social, mobile, gaming and more across categories like food, entertainment, music and fashion. At an event called Eats & Apps, put on by MouthoftheBorder, the latest apps were presented to food lovers (professionals and enthusiasts alike). And by apps, we mean -etizers and -lications. Sliders, mac and cheese, veggie chili and fries from build-a-burger joint 4Food were passed as party-goers chatted with the creators of the newest products marrying tech and food. Attendees had the opportunity to try out the new apps and talk to the creative minds who brought them to life, as well as mingle with food writers, bloggers, editors and home cooks. Food Network's In the Kitchen App for iPad, iPhone and Android was there, joining the ranks of the latest, greatest must-have food and cooking apps of the moment.
