Random Chef is an iPhone app that helps with the inevitable question, as you prepare the weekly shopping list:

"What do we want to have for dinner this week?"

Go to Random Chef in the App store

Now, with Random Chef, you can tap the Random button and it automatically chooses a weeks worth of recipes for you, from your personal recipe book, and creates a shopping list for all their ingredients.

Random Chef comes with 14 of my favourite recipes, however it (unlike many recipe apps) encourages you to enter your own recipes and their ingredients.

A combined shopping list is created, which you can use to tick off the items as you purchase them, or if they're already in your cupboard.

It also has a very neat recipe view screen, where you can view the ingredients and instructions as you cook your meals[[posterous-content:jdHJervzgIAJdcEAeBzt]]

I really hope you enjoy this app, it's been a pleasure to bring it to you.
