"You're hosting your first dinner party and you want to
impress your guests with some culinary expertise. The problem is, you have
none. Fortunately, Arome Interactive and Cambrix Publishing's series of cooking
guides can help even neophyte chefs create elegant dishes that should please
the most discriminating palates. More than simply a collection of recipes,
these interactive CD-ROMs also teach cooking techniques using clearly written
instructions and video demonstrations.
"The first two titles in the series are The Art of Making Great Pastries and The Four
Seasons of Gourmet French Cuisine.
"Four Seasons and Great Pastries offer over
100 recipes divided into categories. Each recipe includes lists of ingredients,
utensils needed, degree of difficulty, cost range, and preparation and cooking
times, all of which can be printed as hard copy...
"Great Pastries is structured a bit differently,
based on the concept that gourmet desserts are built upon combinations of basic
components, like meringues, brioches, and mousses. So almost a quarter of the
recipes are for these building blocks, many of which can also be served by
themselves, as well as in combination with other ingredients.
" In addition, Great Pastries provides more of a
step-by-step approach to its instructions than Four Seasons does. Each stage of
the preparation features its own video clip. Four Seasons provides clips for
only certain techniques. But with both titles, Arome's designers provide what
amounts to a cooking school on a CD-ROM"
