It's not the best Sesame video release, but it's not too bad., 17 June 2005
The plot's a little thin, but Elmo's Magic Cookbook doesn't rely on
using previously produced clips as much as some Sesame Street
straight-to-video releases. Instead, it uses the clips to tie together
cooking segments where the kids make some easy food dishes with
supervision from a Muppet genie that came from the titular magic
cookbook, Alan ('zapped' over from Hooper's Store for his appearance),
and the celebrity guests.
For the adults, the video has a couple of great running gags and two
celebrity appearances -- Emeril Legasse, who makes pizza with the kids
and talks about where cheese comes from, and singer Heather Headley,
who teaches the kids about pocket foods and makes a summer roll for
Elmo to try.
