Nintendo Food Thingy

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/2157587/Nintendo's-talking-cookery-guide-could-threaten-traditional-recipe-books.html

Any link between my loves of food and games consoles is one worth re-iterating here. No, Nintendo do not pay me anything to promote thier food related games (er, though if you're looking for anyone Mr Miyamoto...) I just love a bit of convergence. So here you have it Nintendo's talking Cooking Guide: Can't decide what to eat? Basically, a talking cookbook. You shout at it to tell you the next bit of the recipe. Brilliant. The recipe's do a look a bit shit at the moment, but I'm holding out for the Mario and Yoshi do Ferran Adria sequel. On Karts.

I love convergences, too. I just tried to explain London restaurants in terms of the new Batman movie on my own blog: http://backwardscity.blogspot.com/

I've found my iPod Touch to be a brilliant recipe book. It doesn't listen when I shout at it, but I have a whole internet of recipes in a portable and (almost) wipe clean format in the kitchen.

These will be the cookbooks of the future, little handheld computers or a screen in the fridge... Looks good, the technology makes it so much easier for the beginner cook.

I haven't actually used it to cook yet but it is fun to play with. I do love Cooking Mamma but which is injected a little reality and recipe into it - so you could actually learn to cook while playing the game.
