Get the whole family having fun in the kitchen.
What's for dinner? Just tap the touch screen to reveal dozens of
possibilities, then gather a team of friends or family members to help
prepare it. 300 recipes have been tested and perfected by the three
dozen test cooks at America's Test Kitchen, a 2,500-square foot kitchen
that is home to Cook's Illustrated and Cook's Country
magazines as well as the popular America's Test Kitchen public
television show. Now their culinary expertise promises to give everyone
the tools and knowhow to prepare spectacular meals - together.
Everyone in the family can get involved. The software offers up
age-appropriate kitchen tasks, so settings can be adjusted to indicate
whether younger helpers are old enough to handle knives or adjust
Everyone involved in the cooking process can rate favorite recipes.
When you're looking for a family favorite in the future, a search
function makes retrieval easy. Users can find something for every
taste and occasion by browsing the 300 recipes by ingredients,
difficulty, cooking time or even calorie count.
If the cooks in your party don't know a marinade from a marmalade,
prompts appear within recipes for specific terms that they might need
more information about. Users can then watch helpful how-to videos to
show them what to do. Users also can hear audible instructions and use
voice commands to navigate the software during the cooking process.
If multiple people on your cooking team have Nintendo DS systems, you
can wirelessly transmit select recipes to them, even if they don't
have a copy of the game card. That lets you concentrate on the entrée
while your assistants tackle the side dishes.
Just as with a traditional cookbook, users can take notes. The
software's handwriting-recognition feature records notes about
personal touches users add to their recipes.
All the recipes have been created by editors, food scientists, tasters
and cookware specialists at America's Test Kitchen. They've taken the
guesswork out of finding the best recipes, which leaves you and your
assistant chefs to focus on the fun of cooking.
