Peppercorn is a crowdsourced resource app for best practices in the kitchen and cooking. Answers to whether or not you should rinse your chicken to how to get rid of the bitterness of onions.
Peppercorn was a personal case study project on digital product design, user test, and development.
Below are the app map, wireframe, and prototype with branding and visual design. In addition to the mobile product, there is a Apple TV app study.

Peppercorn Apple TV app adaptation. The app is stripped down and simplified to being a kitchen aid resource and A.I. dominated (Siri, in this case). The app would be an answer to mobile users who wish for a voice activation rather than a keyboard for input. (*Keyboard is optional if the Search Bar is in focus.)
Apple TV’s remote is bluetooth and does not require line-of-sight with the TV box. Users can use the remote’s microphone to dictate their questions. Siri returns with a read-out and display of the top voted relevant solution. This Siri feature is great for when the TV is not in the same room as the user. The audio can be heard instead.
The Peppercorn Apple TV app can be left in the background while a user cooks, ready for any question that may arise. The option of playing music can be added on. Users can link their Pandora or Spotify account.
