Ask my grandmother what help she had when she’d throw a dinner party back in the day and her reply will be: “Absolutely none. I’d start from scratch with a few old recipes my mother scribbled down into a notebook.”
Thankfully nowadays, we have apps like Panna to make our dinner party experience that much better. Panna is the video cooking app that allows you to stream and follow step-by-step recipes from master chefs across America—all the while in your own kitchen. Sounds too good to be true? Guess again!
Here are a few reasons why our favorite Panna master chefs—like Rick Bayless, Melissa Clark, Hugh Acheson, Nancy Silverton—will soon be your best dinner party mentors.
