Michelle Obama to Star on Netflix’s Kid-Centric Cooking Show

‘Waffles + Mochi’ is set to follow the journey of two puppets, Waffles and Mochi, as they try to become chefs with the former First Lady playing a ‘whimsical supermarket’ owner.

AceShowbiz -Michelle Obama is set to launch a cooking show on Netflix. Titled “Waffles + Mochi”, the upcoming kid-centric show will feature the former First Lady as a “whimsical supermarket” owner as well as two puppets named Waffles and Mochi.

Waffles + Mochi” is set to follow the puppets’ journey as they try to become chefs. The show’s theme is described to be closely aligning with Michelle’s “Let’s Move!” public health campaign that was aimed at curbing childhood obesity. The wife of Barack Obama has been trying to help families get access to healthy, affordable foods and increase their physical activities with her initiatives.

Netflix said in a statement, “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.”

“I’m beyond thrilled to share that on March 16, I’ll be launching a new show on @Netflix called Waffles + Mochi! I’m excited for families and children everywhere to join us on our adventures as we discover, cook, and eat delicious food from all over the world,” Michelle shared her excitement on Twitter on Tuesday, February 9.
