Crosswords for my foodie friends




At last, there's a crossword app just for us foodies! My new Gourmet Crosswords app has just been launched, for all iOS devices (apart from very old devices, as Apple no longer supports them in new apps, unfortunately).

There are 25 crosswords, all 15 x 15 grids, for only 99¢. As with our QuickBreak apps, the crosswords are completely customisable: you can change the backgrounds, grid colours, letter colours, highlight colours, and choose between five different fonts. We've added a nice new script fancy font.


The graphics feature one of my watercolours, a still life with figs.


So — just how good a gourmand are you? Test out your knowledge of cooking techniques, international recipes, ingredients, wines, and spirits on the Gourmet Crosswords to find out! Can you score 100%?!

  2. Hi Denise - just wanted to let you know one of the blogs I follow had a story about people who write crossword puzzles, this week!

    Now there's a topic you don't often see covered ;-)

    Cheers, Karin

    1. Thanks - that is indeed a rare topic! The article just discusses the situation in the USA — things run a bit differently in the UK and Australia (where syndication is more the go), but the woeful income from this specialist work is universal, it seems :/
