Global Food Adventure


Take two puppets, add former First Lady Michelle Obama, and you have a winning recipe for a new food show. Waffles + Mochi premieres on Netflix on March 16. It features kids, celebrity guests, and incredible chefs.

Aspiring chefs Waffles and Mochi travel around the world in a magical shopping cart, learning about different foods and cultures. Obama plays the owner of the supermarket where they work. Each episode highlights a special ingredient, such as pickles or mushrooms.

TFK Kid Reporter Bellen Woodard interviewed Waffles, Mochi, and Obama. She asked them to name the show’s key ingredient. All three agreed on the answer: “love.” Obama added a few more ingredients to the list: “Friendship and people belonging,” she said.
