One of the biggest -- and weirdest -- surprises of E3 was What's Cooking? With Jamie Oliver. Far from a Cooking Guide ripoff, What's Cooking is some kind of hands-on cooking trainer combined with an interactive recipe book. It seems like, even if people don't want it or don't like it (or it turns out not to be good), significant enough thought (and budget) has gone into this game to prevent its classification as shovelware.
This NSFG (Not Safe for Greenhough) trailer doesn't feature any of the 3D kitchen stuff or the simulated cooking, focusing instead on the actual recipes. But man, that sweet potato soup sounds good.

Is this the guy who went on a crusade against unhealthy food in public schools in Britain a few years ago?

Yeah, and frankly he should piss off for even trying to force feeding habits into children not his own.

Well, I liked his basic message, but he really sounded like a nutter when he talked about his mission.
I only ask because I am interested in getting one of the many cooking games for the DS, but I don't want to give Mr. Oliver any of my money because of said stupid publicity stunt. I guess I'll go with another title.

And I suppose the British government should piss off as well, for also force feeding habits into children? Give the guy a break, he was doing a good thing.
I'm excited for this... game? Software? Whatever it is, I'm probably one of the only ones.
