Issa’s Edible Adventures is a wonderful app that was created by world-renowned chef and TV star, Aliya Leekong. The idea behind the app is to help the chef collect missing ingredients for dishes he must prepare. These ingredients, however, are not just obtained from the kitchen. Issa must travel the world to find these ingredients in their original form from their place of origin.

As Issa makes her way through her travels, she explores the different cultures and shares interesting facts via audio and text. Once she has all the ingredients she came for, she flies home to help the chef prepare the meal. The meal preparation is done in a step-by-step fashion, allowing the user to complete the dish by dragging the ingredients needed, stirring them, etc.

I really enjoyed how this app incorporated social studies. I also loved that it helped spark interest in unique food items and dishes that I usually wouldn’t consider eating or using.

Available for download through iTunes. (Only tested on an iPhone.)
