Just in time for the holidays, NAMCO BANDAI has teamed up with Food Network to unveil Food Network: Cook or Be Cooked for Wii™. This new game is designed to teach players real, practical cooking skills using their Wii Remote and Nunchuk. From introductory lessons to more advanced challenges, Food Network: Cook or Be Cooked will make everyone a star chef.

With more than 30 recipes developed by the expert chefs of the Food Network Kitchens, the game delivers a truly authentic food experience from prep to plate. Realistic and fun challenges let Food Network fans, enthusiastic chefs and even kitchen-phobes perfect their culinary techniques mess-free with the motion-based Wii Remote and Nunchuk simulating an array of kitchen tools and utensils. From cracking an egg, to oiling a pan, to seasoning the perfect steak, Food Network: Cook or Be Cooked is designed to take the cooking experience from practice to practical, teaching skills which can ultimately be applied in the real kitchen, for a real-life delicious Food Network meal.

There are never too many cooks in the kitchen with this game. Players encounter Food Network’s Vice President of Marketing and The Next Food Network Star judge, Susie Fogelson, and Food Network Kitchens chef Mory Thomas along the way for tips, feedback and reviews. Friends and family can cook all recipes side-by-side in cooperative Hot Potato mode for up to four players, or have a competitive split-screen cook-off with two players. This game is the perfect gift for all the foodies or aspiring chefs on your holiday list.
