Sioux Falls woman’s new iPad app highlights gluten-, grain-, soy-free cooking

I don’t often venture away from eating out in Sioux Falls on this blog, and when I do it’s often about some national Twinkie crisis, or to make fun of my friends over at KSFY.

But when I heard a Sioux Falls woman had released an iPad application centered around healthy cooking, specifically gluten-, grain-, and soy-free cooking, I thought it was worth a mention.

Abby Berger, a Sioux Falls native and Augustana graduate who talks a little more about her style of cooking and what she likes to do in this video, is the head of Delicion L.L.C., the company that released the Delicion app in the Apple App Store on March 5.

I downloaded it last night (it’s a free app), and it’s very nice. The food looks great, the step-by-step instructions are easy to follow and include pictures. You can sort recipes by dietary options (think vegan, egg-free, nut-free, etc.), and each dish has the nutritional information as well.

Free with the app, you get the ‘Picnic Anytime’ recipe pack, which includes Mint-infused Fruit Salad, Black Bean Pesto Pasta, Vino Veggies and Triple-Chocolate Brownies. Further packs of recipes are available for in-app purchase.

I’ve not had any of the dishes, so I can’t speak to how the food tastes, but it’s cool to have a local app like this (Berger says all the recipes are hers, and local talent was used for everything outside of programming).

If you download it, tell me what you think! I know I’ve got many people in my life, family and friends, who have dietary restrictions and might give this app a try.
