These days there are quite literally thousands of games to choose from online, on mobile and on consoles. Of course, this means that there should be at least two or three specifically created for almost any hobby you could ever have or think of. Fortunately for anyone who enjoys food and/or cooking, there are plenty of casual games based in the kitchen.
Whether you want to become a master chef or simply want to see if you could ever keep up with the fast pace of a restaurant kitchen, here are some games every foodie has to try.
Often referred to as the number one time management game of all time, Diner Dash is an absolute must-have for anyone who enjoys food and cooking. Each day you must complete the breakfast, lunch and dinner shifts to the best of your ability, providing great customer service and quick meal delivery to earn tips and keep the restaurant open. As, don’t forget, Mr Big’s Eat-Mor fast food chain is closing in, and you can’t let the bad guys win.
Anyone who has ever worked at a pizzeria will instantly know how this game is played. First, take the customer’s order including the toppings, time the pizza needs to be cooked and how they want the pizza to be cut. Next, you’ve been trusted with making that pizza and getting it absolutely right to receive the customer’s praise and a big tip that will keep you and the restaurant going. Sure, it sounds relatively easy, but wait until you’ve got more than a few customers waiting for your delicious pizzas.
Cook, Serve, Delicious!
For foodies that are looking for a more hardcore game to play, it’s time to try Cook, Serve, Delicious! Though it is undeniably fast paced and can even become overly challenging at times, this title is easy to play at first so you’ll find your skills growing as the game progresses. There is also a sequel to this game that can also be found on Steam. The aim remains the same though: avoid those awful zero star ratings!
Based on the classic five-payline slot model, Microgaming’s Belissimo! slot is a great choice for foodies who like casino games and is available at online casino operator Betway. The idea is to line up matching symbols, which include traditional sevens and bars as well as the chef icon which doubles as the slot’s wild. The more symbols you match the more pizzas you make for your virtual customers, and there’s also a jackpot available and if you get lucky you could even win the jackpot of 80x your original bet.
