Get Children Cooking
 

Video games are usually thought of as competing with family mealtimes and healthy eating. However, there are many games that develop a good relationship with food and cooking. The games in this list have been selected because cooking is an element of the gameplay or because they are set in a context where meals and mealtime are important.

Some of the games in this list, like Zelda Breath of the Wild require players to make up different recipes for a functional advantage. Other games, like Inbento, use food as a theme for a puzzle. Then there are games like Venba that use food as a cultural and storytelling element.

The games have in common that food is important. They offer an unusual way to inspire how food is prepared, shared and enjoyed. This might be to come up with new ingredient combinations for flavour or (maybe) the chemistry of how different recipes work.
 
This list includes 28 games from the last 18 years, with 1,632 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to inspire young chefs.
