Summary: I know a foodie, and he recently bought a ds, so I got him this cooking trainer and the ds stand so he could use it in the kitchen. I don't know if he ever used it. He's still kind of a stinky cook.
Summary: I was really excited about getting this "game" as I love to cook and wanted to try it out. There are some very interesting recipes available, however a good number of them are exotic and if I even wanted to try to cook them I could never find the ingredients (i.e. Squid in Ink sauce).
Summary: I bought this for my daughter who is 11 and loves to cook. This is OK. It really doesn't have a lot of recipes for kids and things that the average family likes to eat. We haven't even tried any recipes yet.
Summary: Personal Trainer Cooking is a really cool game. The recipes are very interesting and the food comes out pretty well, and there are a lot of ethnic recipes, organized by country, or ingredient. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow, and the spoken instructions are easy to understand.
Summary: This is a great tool for beginners except that most of the food choices aren't what teens eat. I would have liked more choices from typical teenager foods and not so many international choices.
Summary: I'm not Betty Crocker by any means, cooking isn't easy for me but I get by. I find this software, which is really more like a talking cookbook, pretty easy to use. The recipes are a nice array of international food, so you get to try out new stuff.
Summary: I was hoping to find something to help me with EVERYDAY cooking, to give me ideas and to guide me through new recipes I might want to try. If your looking to cook with things you usually have around the house you won't find to many recipes on here.
Summary: These days, with so many people choosing to stay at home and eat, rather than going out to a fancy restaurant and eat out because of debt or financial problems, many people are looking for new and clever ways to cook their favorite meals at home.
Summary: I would say this is just okay. I have found a few recipes that I will consider making. The thing is the majority of the recipes are either super easy and basically common sense (how to make mac-n-cheese or how to cook green beans) or really weird and out there (like squid jambalaya).
Summary: If you're a fan of Asian cuisine, then this is for you. I live in a rural community, and many of the ingredients aren't available here. (Kamaboko fish cake, azuki beans, zenmai, nam pla fish sauce... I've never heard of them, and I'm sure the local farmer's market doesn't carry them!
