Review Nintendo seems to have abandoned its Personal Trainer series of self-help software, but America's Test Kitchen: Let's Get Cooking is, for all intents and purposes, more Personal Trainer: Cooking. This is an interactive cookbook that will walk you through the steps of 300 new recipes that weren't in Cooking. While it borrows the name of the America's Test Kitchen TV show, this was likely just to piggy back on its brand recognition because this software doesn't have much to do with it and host Christopher Kimball is nowhere to be found. The interface and voice that walks you through recipes are identical to Personal Trainer: Cooking. Those aren't complaints, though: this is another fantastic value that comes highly recommended to anyone who could use some help in the kitchen...Note that this is not a game. America's Test Kitchen is a multimedia cookbook that offers more help and advice than your typical recipe compendium. Three hundred North American dishes are on offer, sorted into categories like "appetizers," "salads," and "fish." You can search by ingredients or certain requirements like difficulty or calories. The software will also pay attention to your Nintendo DS' calendar and recommend suitable recipes when holidays like Easter and Cinco de Mayo are approaching...America's Test Kitchen is designed to be a cooking tool the whole family can use. Each member of the household can create a profile and recipe steps can be divided among several people. The software notes each person's age and won't assign the potato chopping to a five-year old...Once you've selected a recipe you have two options for navigation: touch screen or voice command. Both options work well so it's really just a matter of personal preference. A chef's voice will speak each step to you and the speed of his reading can be adjusted in the Settings menu. While preparing a recipe you'll encounter helpful tips and tutorial videos that will go into more detail for a particular step. There are a lot of nice little bells and whistles like that, making this one of the best cookbooks around...I'm not a good cook, but I can follow directions and use the DS. With America's Test Kitchen: Let's Get Cooking I've successfully made bruschetta, black bean salad, and beef goulash, and they all tasted great. Twenty bucks is a cool price for 300 recipes complete with video tutorials. The traditional cookbook seems quaint in comparison.

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 stovetop controls.
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.
Prompts Appear For More Information on Recipes. 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.
Recipes Created by America's Test Kitchen. 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.
Take Notes on Your Favorie Recipes. 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.
Wirelessly Transmit Select Recipes To Other DS Systems. 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 entr?e while your assistants tackle the side dishes.
