Michelle Obama has lifted the lid on her new Netflix show ‘Waffle + Mochi’ – a new children’s series geared at relaying the joys of home cooking over eating fast food.
Full story below…
Serving as one of the inaugural offerings from The Obamas Higher Ground production pact with the streamer, the show arrives on March 16.
Mrs. Obama has billed the series as a “hilarious, heartwarming, and simply magical show”.
“I only wish Waffles + Mochi had been around when my daughters were growing up, because it’s the kind of programme that’s fun to watch together as a family, and gives parents the peace of mind to know that their little ones are learning something, too.”
The official synopsis reads:
“Once upon a thyme, deep in The Land of Frozen Food, lived two best friends named Waffles and Mochi with one shared dream: to become chefs! The only problem? Everything they cooked was made of ice. When these two taste-buddies are suddenly hired as the freshest employees of a whimsical supermarket, they’re ready for the culinary adventure of a lifetime.
With the help of friendly new faces like the supermarket owner, Mrs. Obama, and a magical flying shopping cart as their guide, Waffles and Mochi blast off on global ingredient missions, traveling to kitchens, restaurants, farms and homes all over the world, cooking up recipes with everyday ingredients alongside renowned chefs, home cooks, kids and celebrities. Whether they’re picking potatoes in the Andes of Peru, sampling spices in Italy, or making Miso in Japan, these curious explorers uncover the wonder of food and discover every meal is a chance to make new friends. Waffles + Mochi is an exciting invitation to get kids and grown-ups cooking together in the kitchen and connecting to cultures around the globe.”
‘Waffle + Mochi’ follows ‘Becoming’ – the blockbuster Netflix documentary adaptation of Michelle’s mega-selling memoir.
News of the new show comes on the heels of The Obamas unwrapping their Netflix slate.
