As only here the annual World Culinary Workshop is held, and only here you can improve your culinary skills even more. Especially if we take into account that the most renowned chefs from all over the world (namely, China, Japan, Italy, France, Thailand and others) have given their consent to train you and other contestants and reveal the secrets of their national cuisines. A great chance to learn for a young aspiring student, not to mention the opportunity to win $1,000,000 and start your own restaurant, don't you think? So, meet your first instructor and start cooking!
The game play is mostly taken from the first Cooking Academy, though it's better balanced now and some new exciting tasks are added. The game is divided into stages organized by countries, and in each national cuisines you'll have a bunch of exotic dishes to practice, and then you can take exams in order to proceed to the next country and its peculiarities. You choose which dishes to try first, and you can replay any recipe at any moment in order to get a better score.
First that you get for every dish is its history, tradition of serving and other interesting facts about what you are going to cook. Then you can proceed to the cooking itself, step by step. And here the diversity of tasks is amazing, and surely enough not to make you bored. Though you only use your mouse, the tasks will require both speed and accuracy, as you need to fulfill a certain number of actions within a tough time limit and in a given sequence. You will dice and slice all possible types of food using your mouse for directing the knife, then you'll add ingredients in a correct order (the visual clues may be a bit confusing sometimes, so the tasks can become really challenging), stir and grate, fold fortune cookies and break eggs under an absolutely correct angle and with absolutely precise strength, set temperature and watch you buns, for example, turn golden brown and not a shade darker. Most of the tasks will require your complete attention and perfect timing, so sometimes you'll really need to replay certain steps in order to get enough stars to proceed (stars are used for evaluating your hard work - and the judges are strict, I should say).
The graphics are great - nothing more to say, you have to see it by your own eyes. And the music, changing from stage to stage to match the national environment, creates a nice background.
So, if you are ready to test your culinary skills and maybe even find something to use in your everyday kitchen life - it's time to attend Cooking Academy 2: World Cuisine!
