    Cooking's touch screen interface is clean, but the voice commands and audio help are what really make traditional cookbooks seem outdated. This "Touch Generations" title may be intended to draw more non-gamers into the fold, but this is software that truly is for everyone.
  2. This package surpasses the novelty of having a slew of recipes and a personal backup up chef teaching you the ropes.
  3. It's informative, useful, well thought out, and exhaustive in it's attention to detail.

    Personal Trainer Cooking has plenty of tasty looking meals and a marvelous user interface.
  5. Personal Trainer Cooking is an ideal companion for budding chefs interested in learning their way around the kitchen.
  6. Of course, it won’t make cooking any more entertaining if you already find it a bit of a chore, but if you just want to be entertained you could also sit back a look at Gordon Ramsey curse his way through an episode of The F Word.
  7. Sizzling just below perfection yet leaving a pleasant taste in the mouth, Cooking Guide is a unexpectedly novel idea pulled off successfully

    This has 245 recipes and is briliant and easy to use. You can search recipes by keyword or country. You yell continue for the next step so that when you are cooking, you don't need to touch the DS. I love it! Expand

    I played the Japanese import ("Shaberu! DS Oryouri Navi") and loved it. You had to yell "tsuGI" or "oh---KEI" to continue, though, and because I don't speak Japanese I had to use a strategy guide. Oddly enough the same developer had already published the strategy guide years in advance. Beautiful hard-bound strategy guide, too, which I think I might keep in my kitchen. Expand

    Excellent and covers more recipes than you'd expect. One problem though is that the voice recognition is basic at best. I dropped something on the floor and it thought i wanted to continue to the next step. Turn voice recognition off especially if there are other people talking around you! Other than that it's excellent. Expand
