Michelle Obama’s new best pals Waffles and Mochi have been making a lot of celebrities friends on their adventures around the world in a magic cart – and now have their sights on Gordon Ramsay.
The part Yeti, part waffle wannabe chef and his ice cream and rice sidekick reckon they have the ability to tame the ‘shouty’ Kitchen Nightmares host.
Well… if they can teach a former First Lady the magic of different kinds of mushrooms, we’re pretty sure they can do anything!
Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk, Waffles told us: ‘I think we can soften any chef up. They become big softies after they meet us.’
‘I just think we’ll have dance parties with all of them,’ he added, showing off his moves. ‘Then they’ll lighten up.’
‘He sounds like he might yell at people. Does he yell?’ Waffles asked us, which we confirmed and warned he might say a naughty word or two as well.
But that didn’t deter the furry chef-in-training, who seemed like he might want to learn the gobby star’s bad habits.
‘I’d like to meet him!’ the puppet laughed.
‘Let’s put it out there, let’s vision that for season two that we will have Gordon Ramsay. Alright, it’ll happen.’
While Gordon might have missed out on a visit this time round, Waffles and Mochi still manage to bring in a bunch of celebrity pals to learn about food – including Zach Galafinakis, Stranger Things’ Gaten Matarazzo and Queer Eye’s Tan France.
They also meet chefs including Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat’s Samin Nosrat, and Italian restauranteur Massimo Bottura, who help them learn how to become chefs and why certain food is so special.
Michelle Obama (aka Mrs O) stars alongside them as a supermarket manager who sets them off on missions around the world.
The 10-episode series has been launched as part of the Obamas’ megabucks deal with the streaming service, and is aimed to educate kids from a young age to eat healthier.
Speaking about her involvement, chef Samin explained: ‘Mrs. Obama has really sort of made this a central part of her mission, aiming at this early childhood education because if you start with kids when they’re young, you create good habits, and it’s a lot easier to get kids excited about healthy.
‘It’s not even healthy things, just eating whole foods and good foods, cooking and having these life skills that for the last few generations in the West have been completely skipped over all of us because of the way life has modernised.
‘Investing in little kids is good because it follows them through their life rather than trying to get to kids when they’re like 16/17, when they’ve developed a palette and they want to eat just junk food. Who can blame them? Junk food is engineered to be addictive – I love junk food, I get it.
‘But I do think that’s the brilliance, and it really does work.’
Waffles and Mochi is available now on Netflix.
