5.0 out of 5 stars Good Delicious Recipes 28 Nov 2008
By wicket2005 VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this product after using the Cooking Guide for the DS Lite. Both offer recipes, the latter one being of a more exotic nature as they are recipes from all over the world.

There are a fair view recipes in this product from starters to desserts. The basis of this product is to show you how to make good quality filling foods easily. I have tried several recipes which have all been met with much approval by the rest of the family. The recipes are easy to follow.

However, I prefer the Cooking Guides method of delivering the recipes which sees all the prep work done first then you move on to the cooking. This product goes from one to the other at the various stages. The Cooking Guide also keeps a track of how many times you have done a recipe which I think is handy if you intend trying different ones all of the time.

You can eliminate unnecessary recipes but it is a bit rudimentary compared to the Cooking Guide. This product allows you to select meat products for example but not a particular meat or a particular ingredient which is what the Cooking Guide does. However, it does display the ingredients necessary for that particular stage which is handy on the upper screen whilst the bottom screen displays the method. In the Cooking Guide you have to touch the ingredients section to check how much you need to use, then go back to the recipe.

Comparing the product to an traditional recipe book is unfavourable as a book would contain more recipes, however, the use of the ds lite makes cooking more fun. Both this and the Cooking Guide plays a tune when you are cooking, the latter has tunes from the country you are making the recipe from.

4.0 out of 5 stars whats cooking 13 Feb 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I think this game is much better than the cant decide what to cook game, the meals that you can make are much more appetising and cover a wider range of tastes. There is also a game, like a less child-like version of cooking mama, although it is quite annoying if you do the slightest thing wrong you cant finish until you rectify that, which could be something small that you have done wrong at the start which means you will have to start all over again. all in all tho this is not just a cooking lesson, shopping list, but also a game in its own right. very good buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed really 11 Oct 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
As someone who's not an accomplished chef I was looking forward to something useful and varied, especially as it carries Jamie Olivers label. Only 100 recipes (total) of starters, main courses and sweets. Suppose it's OK but not quite what I was expecting.It was inexpensive - now I understand why.

The software is very good and explicit, a shame that doesn't have more recipes to follow, but so far it has been great.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Received this as a present because I love watching jamie's programmes but as yet haven't been able to play on it as my children aged 5 and 7 , are playing on it all the time! They think it's great and argue over whose turn it is!

They have definitely given this a thumbs up!

1.0 out of 5 stars What a waste!
Waste of both time and money. Apart from a couple of recipes, I honestly cannot see the point of this game. Definitely not for the adults.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
More wellknown and basic cooking menus were expected. The game side of this is boring, unrealistic and most of time I have not been able to do the required action. Read more
