miBook Brings Recipes to Life


By Cari Martens

Wouldn’t it be great if when you found a recipe in a cookbook that sounded good, the book suddenly came to life and a food pro showed you step-by-step how to prepare it?

Well, that’s pretty much how miBook works. About the size of a DVD case, miBook from Photoco comes with about 150 recipes illuminated with video clips, still photos, text and sound. A handy kickstand makes it easy to prop it up on your kitchen counter and follow the video instructions shown on the 7-inch screen. The videos (from the Food Network library) pause after each step so you can proceed at your own pace without having to hit the Stop or Rewind button all the time.

It’s almost like having your mom there, guiding you along—only never being judgmental about it.

The miBook Cooking Kit includes recipes for salads, soups, stir-fry, chicken, fish, pastas, smoothies and more. It retails for about $120. Other titles are available for the miBook in home improvement, lawn and garden, and parenting for about $20 each.
