Excerpt: Cooking for nerds. This is the easiest game review I've ever written. Normally when you sit down to play a game, you're in for the long haul. You might have to put 60 or 100 hours into an MMORPG before you feel comfortable grading it. I was ready to go with America's Test Kitchen: Let's Get Cooking after about 15 minutes. That's for two reasons. First, it's exactly the same software as Personal Trainer Cooking with only a few minor additions and a new set of recipes.
Pros: Actually teaches you to cook, Video tutorials, 300 recipes, From terrific cooking nerds, All-American cooking nerds, More lame "features" clutter it up
Review: America's Test Kitchen: Let's Get Cooking (Nintendo DS)
8 April 2010
Summary: For $19.99, you’re getting an electronic cookbook with more recipes that you generally find in a fifty dollar one, and better ones to boot as they’re all directly from the PBS program that gives this DS cartridge its name. America’s Test Kitchen: Let’s Get Cooking manages to surpass both Personal Trainer: Cooking and My Healthy Cooking Coach as the best virtual cookbook available and it also features some of the best video footage ever released on the DS.
The interactive cookbook is ready for a second helping with more recipes and features.

Conclusion: I'm not a good cook, but I can follow directions and use the DS. With America's Test Kitchen: Let's Get Cooking I've successfully made bruschetta, black bean salad, and beef goulash, and they all tasted great. Twenty bucks is a cool price for 300 recipes complete with video tutorials. The traditional cookbook seems quaint in comparison.
