Cooking is fun, but more importantly PLAYING with food is fun! There are so many exciting variables at play that can make handling food so satisfying; its consistency and feel, how it sounds when you slice it, its texture, and especially the taste of it. Tasting in itself can be such an adventure – when was the last time you ate something so hot it made your ears red? Or have you ever been served something so delicious that you couldn’t help yourself from putting it in your mouth without letting it cool off first?
Just thinking about all these things made us hungry to explore food play even further than we did in the original Toca Kitchen. So we decided to make a sequel! And we invited a cast of all new dinner guests for all you aspiring chefs out there to cook for. Or to try out your silliest recipes on. They’ll eat or drink almost anything you put in front of them.
So put on your apron and chef’s hat: you’re needed in the kitchen once more!
