Cooking Mama

Now you don’t need neither food or a kitchen to cook. With the game Cooking Mama to Nintendo DS you can cook in your sofa, on the subway or in your bed. Using the stylys as a kitchen tool you can chop, stir, stew, slice, fry and even more on the touch screen. Is the food too warm? Then cool it by blowing on the microphone. You play the game by choosing a recipe, then you prepare it by following the step-by-step instructions as they come on the screen. The game originates in Japan, which you notice on the rather special recipes. There is a lot of japanese food and I guess that oyster sauce in Spaghetti Bolognese is a special japanese touch :-) It’s funny and easy to play and hopefully you’ll pick up some new ideas as the game contains 76 recipes which you also can combine.

During 2007 a follow up, Cooking Mama: Cook Off, will be released to Nintendo Wii. Thanks to the special Wii remote you’ll basically be able to do anything you do in the kitchen with Wii remote motions that feel close to the real thing. A great thing is the multiplayer mode where you and a friend can compete using the same recipe.

But… the best thing is of course to go to your kitchen and cook some real food. The game won’t feed you, but it’s sure a lot of fun and if you’re a total disaster in the kitchen you’ll probably pick up some cooking skills!

    Anne: Yes, the wii version sounds incredible. Make sure to watch the long demo from E3 (at gamespot.com). We must have cooking battles with P and F :-) Girls against boys. *lol*

    Scott: Yes, the cartridges are quite small so I guess it can be a bit tricky for the younger ones.

    nek0: We’re probably getting our Wii next week, and it will be fun trying playing with the wii remote!

    Sera: It’s so basic yet fun and a bit tricky!

    Brazilian Linda (or should I call you Bbrazilianrazilian Linda *lol*): The game is great! I hope you get an opportunity to try it.

    Cooking Mama’s isn’t just virtual. Paula Gaetos have her potato salad recipe a test drive over at Inkling and it wasn’t that bad. Could Cooking Mama be edging in on Irma Rombauer’s Joy of Cooking?
