How to Make Michael Pollan Cry

2009_08_wii.jpgThe Food Network is rolling out a Wii video game, but it's unclear whether it's incredibly boring, incredibly stupid, or both: "The game progresses in real time, so if you have to brown a steak for three minutes, it will take an actual three minutes to do so... instead of presenting a linear progression like other games, it's up to you to putter around your kitchen and know when to start boiling the potatoes so that they'll still be warm by the time you finish your wine reduction for the meat." And Pollan thinks people don't cook anymore. [Epicurious]
