Editorial Reviews


2010 Tasty Award Winner! - Best DVD or Subscription Series


Review - LA Food Examiner - Dee Long - 12/11/2009


San Francisco-based Executive producer Zuzy Martin Lynch makes an affable host who takes the viewer through 15 cooking segments, each with a different focus and a different guest expert. Segments like The Italian Way, It's a Piece of Cake and Kitchen Essentials are short and breezy, interesting and lively.

"Cooking for the Clueless" makes a great gift for newlyweds who want to learn to cook together, or for anyone who would enjoy taking informal cooking lessons right in the comfort of their own kitchen.

About Cooking for the Clueless®

Cooking for the Clueless® is a fun and desperately needed DVD for those of us who don't want to be clueless in the kitchen anymore!

As we know, cooking shows, chef reality shows and hot new restaurant write-ups flood our TV's, local newspapers and favorite blogspots, it's no surprise that America is obsessed with cooking. But, there remains one growing obstacle for food lovers, many of us still can't cook! Cooking for the Clueless is a 2-disc DVD set with over 15 cooking segments featuring chefs & homecooks alongside someone who's clueless asking all of the questions we really want to know.

About the Founders

Cooking for the Clueless® was born in our living room after realizing that we had a storage full of kitchen gadgets, appliances, and registry must-haves that we didn't know how to use.

While our kitchen collected dust and eating out every night was the norm, living healthier and saving money was becoming more of a priority. We knew we had to change. The intention was there, but attempts were pretty exhausting. So we decided to make Cooking for the Clueless®, bringing in the pros to teach us delicious basics from the clueless perspective.

That's me - a self-proclaimed "clueless cook" the one that burns cookies, overcooks chicken and fish and even burned pasta (which I thought was impossible).

When I watched Cooking for the Clueless it was a complete eye opener. I was always too embarrased to admit I couldn't follow a recipe because I didn't know what all the terms meant. This DVD tells you every detail and is easy to follow along with. The recipes are delicious, even for extremely picky eaters like my husband.

If you have any difficulty with cooking, this DVD is a fabulous investment!!

I was was truly "clueless" about cooking before this DVD! My poor kids had to contend w/ boxed macaroni and cheese and spaghetti for every meal if we weren't spending tons of money on take out.

This is an wonderful DVD which has taught me tips and tricks as well as saving me money. Cooking is truly effortless with great results with "Cooking for the Clueless." Highly recommend it for everyone!

I have bought dozens of cookbooks in my life, but it's been like reading a foreign language. For the first time, we had the family Christmas dinner at our house. We made a turkey, and it didn't go as well as we had hoped. My wife and I decided we wanted to learn more about cooking. We eat dinner out far too often due to our lack of comfort in the kitchen. I heard about this DVD from a friend that raved about it. I wasn't really interested until he told me that it is good for those that want to learn kitchen basics, and a lot more. So I ordered it and my wife and I sat down and watched it. It seemed that every 3-4 minutes we would have an "Oh, that makes sense" moment. Things like how to cut meat in order to have it be more tender. I have always done it wrong. Anyway, these DVD's are full of wonderful things like this. My wife and I have cooked at home everyday for the last 2 weeks and are enjoying the experience. I never knew it could be so fun. It's funny, but the things we've learned from watching the DVD's seem so basic, but we never had a clue. No pun intended.
We gave these DVD's to a friend and she loves them as well. I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone. This may be my first review I've ever done, so that says a lot.
If you buy this, you wont be disappointed.

I enjoy cooking and feel comfortable around the kitchen. Although I'm not a clueless cook, I purchased this DVD and found it extremely informative. This DVD taught me the basics I've been overlooking throughout the years and has given me more confidence and knowledge.

I'm lucky to have a husband who enjoys cooking and knows his way around the kitchen. But I have to admit that I feel guilty and wish I could cook a delicious meal for him as he does for me. I enjoy watching cooking shows like Top Chef but feel very intimidated when it's my turn to cook. Cooking for the Clueless answers many of the questions a novice like myself has. The host and the chef seem so approachable and break down the process easliy on how to cook a delicious meal. The host asks all the right questions that the clueless cook needs answering. Other cooking shows or videos do not seem to cover the basics like this DVD does. Another aspect that I enjoyed was the variety of recipes covered by different chefs. I finally was able to surprise my husband with a great pasta dinner this week instead of a frozen meal.

My wife Griselda and myself have always wanted to become better cooks. We reviewed this amazing DVD and came away quite impressed. Zuzy and her guests do a wonderful job of showing the audience that it isn't really hard to become a good chef and make delicious meals. We would highly recommend this DVD to anyone who likes to cook but doesn't have a true feel for what they are doing in the kitchen! You will love it!

Cooking for the Clueless offers a step-by-step approach to cooking both cozy in-home meals and those that look presentable for a restaurant. Zuzy is warm and animated, and entertaining to watch. The segments are chock-full of "bite size" tidbits featuring a fantastic education on food and its origin.
