Since I will have written all the posts on “how to plan your (gourmet) dinner”, there will be a little thing missing in order to complete the package. What would all the tips and rules be for if we still work with a pencil and a sheet of paper. Come on, it’s 2017! There will be an app for that.

So far, the software requirements specification is done and I’ve got to say, it will be really helpful.

Right now, I’m working on the user interface and since I’m doing this with paper templates, I mocked up a fast and sketchy preview for the iOS-version.
There will be plenty of other features improving the quality of your gourmet dinner.
Stay tuned for more!
