Computer Shopper, December 1997
"Like clockwork, each month brings yet another
Williams-Sonoma catalog full of classic, expensive cookware. A visit to any of
the company's stores is a treat, thanks to shelves laden with glistening
epicurean exotica and the glossiest, most delectable cookbooks. Many of the
dishes contained within the covers of these volumes - along with a menu planner
and glossary - have been compiled on the disc Williams-Sonoma Guide to Good
Cooking from Broderbund...We'd call it good, contemporary American food:
sausage-and-black-bean soup, lemon-orange chicken, and chocolate-chip pancakes.
The unexpected can be found here too; for example, fried oysters tucked into a
good old BLT.
"Not overly endowed with multimedia flash, Good Cooking
contains 1,000 recipes that can be searched by ingredient, ethnic region,
season, course, cooking method, and prep time, among other categories. There
are 50 preplanned menus included on the CD, and it's not difficult to create
your own culinary arrangement. We especially liked Good Cooking's Shopping List
feature, which has the smarts to intelligently combine ingredients and omit
those you wouldn't be likely to pluck off the grocery shelf, like a pinch of
salt or a teaspoon of water.
"Every recipe has five associated lists that contain
information about ingredients, required equipment, techniques, nutrition, and
cooking time. So if you are reading a cake recipe and decide you need remedial
help with unmolding and decoration, you can view the appropriate videos and
then return to the recipe screen. However, most of these videos cover
"Despite these minor quibbles, the disc's lack of fussiness,
combined with the occasional surprises makes this a classic recipe
MacAddict, February 1997
"This disc finally satisfies our craving for an
easy-to-access CD-ROM. Tracking down a particular recipe is as simple as
looking up an ingredient or settling on a cooking time.
"Hungry for a pizza, but you don't like anchovies? Punch
your demands into a simple form and up pops a list of yummy recipes. Stuck
living the low-fat nightmare on a fast-food schedule? In a few seconds you
learn there are two dishes with less than 1 gram of saturated fat (the really,
really evil stuff) that you can make in a half-hour or less.
"An illustrated, animated glossary tops off the vast
database of 1,000 tantalizing recipes. When directions call for
sautéing, click on the term and a QuickTime movie will show you how it's
done. ('The vegetables should literally jump around the pan,' explains a
pleasant voice.) Once you know what you're doing, it's a breeze to print out
your shopping list and get cooking."
