A Cookvook

Woman’s Day and Vook have teamed up to release ‘Woman’s Day Cookvook: Healthy Food for Everyday Living,’ a multimedia cookbook with recipe’s from the pages of Woman’s Day and how-to videos from Vook. Check the link above for a video of the Vook in “action.”

The book came about through an agreement between Hachette Filipacchi Media U.S., owners of the Woman’s Day brand, and Vook, which is trying to build buzz for its multimedia book app format (see our writeup of Vook’s ‘Sherlock Holmes Experience’). The Vook is available for 9.99 as either an online book or an iPhone/ iPod Touch app.

This seems, at least to this blogger, like a more practical use for Vook’s form than literature. Why shouldn’t a cookbook demonstrate its own recipe’s? Sherlock Holmes, however, ought to live in our heads, not our eBooks.
