"The cookbook awards in approximately 20 categories included an award for best ecookbook, presented to THE JOURNEY, which is "the first edition in the Alta Editions Cooking Series." With recipes from chefs Katy Sparks, Alex Raij, Maneet Chauhan, Rita Sodi and Kathleen Squires, the series is actually presented as a $1.99 a month subscription." - Awards: Self-Published Cookbook Takes Top Honors, and More by Michael Cader


"Hot off the (digital) presses, The Journey takes you into the kitchen with some of the better female chefs in the biz. Preview a few of the iPad-friendly recipes for free, or pay two bucks a month for the oft-updated cookbook, video tutorials, and stories of how these women made it to the top of their field." - The Download by DailyCandy Staff


“Recipe apps are developing all kinds of new tricks. The first cookbook of the chef Laurent Gras, “Laurent Gras: My Provence,” is being published this week, as an app only, by Alta Editions, a digital company. It used a Web platform new to e-cookbooks, HTML5, that makes the app usable on desktop and laptop computers as well as on tablets.” - Help for the Gooey-Fingered by Julia Moskin

“Gras, always a few steps ahead, publishes an e-book of homestyle French food.” - Fall Cookbook Preview 2012 by David Tamarkin and Julia Kramer


“Weeks before the launch of Cook Taste Eat, veteran restaurant chef Laurent Gras launched his own multimedia effort that, like Mina's project, is aimed at connecting with home cooks. Gras, who most recently headed the kitchen at Chicago’s Michelin three-star L2O, teamed with writer Mitchell Davis to publish an digital, interactive cookbook, titled “Laurent Gras: My Provence,” from Alta Editions.” - Chefs extend brand with digital tools by Alan J. Liddle


“Gras -- who has received three Michelin stars for his work at three different restaurants around the world -- chose to bypass the traditional publishing medium and go straight to the e-book route with his first cookbook Laurent Gras: My Provence.” - Michelin-starred chef Laurent Gras releases first e-cookbook

“The premier title "Laurent Gras: My Provence" features recipes, beautiful photography and social media interaction neatly designed as a Web application for use on iPad, Mac or PC. Also included are instructional videos from Gras himself. The handsome Frenchman will walk you through culinary tasks from emulsifying a vinaigrette to searing garlic-roasted côte de bœuf in an obscene amount of butter. This isn’t a cooking guide but food porn.” - Cook Like a Frenchman by Matthew Wexler

“The opportunity to learn techniques and how [Gras] organizes his kitchen makes this a very interesting resource. The edition is produced by digital publisher Alta Editions, a division of Jesta Digital, a leading global provider of next-generation entertainment content and services. It is their first foray into the cookbook world, but they hope to expand their offering. After playing around with Laurent Gras: My Provence for a little while, I certainly hope they do put out more of these.” - Michelin-starred chef Laurent Gras releases first e-cookbook by Chris Chamberlain

“Although you probably love your cookbook collection, this digital cookbook book from Alta Editions takes cookbooks into an entirely different realm, one that makes learning how to cook well clear, easy and fun.” - Chickpea salad (from an award-winning chef + a very unique cookbook) by Tracey Ceurvels
