The Hello Kitty Interactive Cookbook features wonderful dessert recipes in an innovative way; recipes are read out loud in sync with the text with the option to play music in the background, and are accompanied with cooking videos and tips, making the recipes accessible, fun and easy to make. Parents and their children can watch, listen and cook together recipes such as Hello Kitty’s French Crepes, Badtz-Maru’s Raspberry Linzer Torte Cookies, Little Twin Stars’ Angel Food Cake, and many other spectacular desserts.
The app’s high functionality allows every member of the family to enjoy the cooking process. Unique features include an ingredients list that is easily converted from European measurements into American, a serving converter that calculates the quantities required from various number of servings, a sharing function that allows you to share favorite recipes on Facebook, Twitter or just via email and a cooking timer that could be set to with the touch of a finger. With this fantastic app you can shake your iPad for a random recipe and even record mental notes for a personal touch on preferred recipes. To top it all, Castle Builders and Sanrio have produced preparation videos for each recipe, so that kids and adults alike can learn how each recipe is made.
This family-friendly app was created to become a must-have for all Hello Kitty and cooking fans and will be the 1st in a series of 3 cookbooks. "We are very proud to partner with Sanrio for the Hello Kitty Interactive Cookbook. The combination of Sanrio’s beautiful artwork and Hello Kitty’s favorite recipes with Castle Builders’ innovative technology has probably produced one of the more productive and engaging digital cookbooks on the App Store. This app is just so much fun to cook with,” says Gil Abramovich, Castle Builders’ CEO. Ultimately, this extraordinary cookbook allows families to spend quality time in the kitchen together while utilizing the iPad’s seamless advantage and sophistication for a game-changing cooking experience. The app will shortly be available for the Nook Color and the Kindle Fire.
