Insert your favourite cheese joke here

With E3 just a matter of weeks away, all eyes are on Nintendo to see what innovative and exciting titles the company has planned for the next year and beyond. It's safe to say that nobody ever expected the company to announce a game that includes cheese and wine guides, but here we are on that auspicious day.

Called 1000 Cooking Recipes with ELLE à Table, Nintendo and the aspirational lifestyle magazine have combined forces to bring culinary experts and noshing novices the ultimate guide to creating top notch grub in your own home. Packing in a range of styles from light bites to three course occasions, each dish has full step-by-step instructions and nutritional information too.

The best part though is the inclusion of Master of Wine Jancis Robinson and John Farrand from the Guild of Fine Food, who have created guides to wine and cheese so your special occasion need not suffer the indignity of a poorly-picked provolone or a mystifyingly misplaced merlot.

Voice recognition lets you navigate the recipes without use of your hands and there are even recipes unlocked on certain days of the year, plus DSi users can snap photos of their culinary accomplishments and share them with other users.

1000 Cooking Recipes with ELLE à Table is due for release in the UK on July 2nd.
