Summary: Bought for my 10 and 11 yo girls for Xmas. Both thought it was more of a cooking helper/ book than game. My older daughters liked they can ask for recipes that don't require knives and alter recipes many ways if you can't use a stove or oven. They thought it was a cool option for including the 3 youngest siblings.I got each girl her own game and they can send recipes to each other via their ds gsmes. Both can use a stove, oven, knives and almost as good at cooking as me.
Summary: This cookbook helped me to become interested in cooking. I know America's Test Kitchen does good work too. It is not perfect however as the microphone does not always seem to pick up when I say next or go backwards. Navigation at times stutters a bit due to the recipe preview essentially demonstrating how to prepare the food while leaving out key details found in the actual execution.
Summary: I like to cook and love good food. I like how this program for the Nintendo DS brings together the family to work on the meal together in a simple to follow step by step program. It has voice dialogue so you can put the DS down and listen to it without getting the system dirty. Also the program uses the microphone on the system to listen to you when your ready to go to the next step.
Summary: This DS "game" is full of good recipes but I just do not see myself or my daughter making alot of the dishes luckily there are over 300 recipes to choose from. All in all the recipes are supposed to be pulled from the America's test kitchen which I love to watch because they show some great science to the recipes.
