I rented this so my son could watch his favorite chef, Emeril Lagasse, in tandem with his favorite show, Sesame Street - and I will admit that we all liked the Emeril (and Telly) part.
That being said, this is another of the variety of Sesame Street videos that uses contrived setups, bad puppetry, celebrity appearances, and educational drivel to spoon-feed information to toddlers like they were so many fois gras geese. Ugh!
Yes, there's loads of Elmo for fans. There's also a blue-screened flying puppet to push the contrived plot forwards. The REAL Sesame clips are few and far between; most of the plot takes place in the kitchen set, and the songs are all "new." To top it off, they have Broadway star Heather Headly appearing to make Vietnamese Summer Rolls, and sing a heartrending song about trying new foods. What does Heather Headly have to do with food? Why aren't her considerable talents used in a video about music or singing or acting?
So - don't buy this. Buy "Let's Eat" if you're looking for a fun Sesame Street video about food.

My daughter absolutely ADORED this video at 18 months. And she still does a year later. Even though we no longer view it twice a day, it has leaked into our everyday life in several ways. For instance, she pretends to not want to try new foods so that I will sing the Pocket Queen song. It works-she'll try almost anything.
Yes, I find Genie a little annoying. But, the little girl in this video is destined for a career in the entertainment field. She is really good. Of course, Heather Headly is enchanting.
I think the only down side is that my daughter also tries to BAM her food sometimes at the dinner table!

My daughter got this as a present, I'm not sure if I would have thought of buying it myself, and was greatly surprised! What a pleasant video, however, entirely different that the Sesame Street videos I was used to (short attention span sketches/songs). It gave me a load of ideas how to make snacktime more interesting, or activity options for rainy days (e.g. making your own pizza)! A great pick with few but catchy songs.
