General Mills and Microsoft have worked together to make the Betty Crocker Kitchen Assistant, a new digital, voice-activated tool featuring high-resolution recipe images and step-by-step cooking instructions, available on Windows PCs and featuring a touch screen interface for Windows 7.


The WPF application combines the content and services offered on the web site with timely, personalized recipe suggestions; programmable kitchen timers; and up-to-the-minute touch-screen capabilities.  The Betty Crocker Kitchen Assistant features a highly intuitive recipe search interface, touch-screen compatibility and an easy-to-use "cook mode" providing simple instructions.

My colleague Todd Van Nurden talks about the application in this Channel 9 video: http://channel9.msdn.com/posts/LauraFoy/Windows-7--General-Mills-bring-the-future-to-your-kitchen/
