One of the most unique video game genres out there today is the cooking/food-themed genre. If you’re feeling peckish and fancy checking out a food-inspired game, here are three of the best food & cooking-related video games that you may want to check out before trying any others.

Some of these games are more widely available than others, and depending on which device you are playing from (e.g., Xbox, Playstation, PC, or mobile) will determine exactly which of these games you can pay. In other words, some of these games can only be accessed on one of these devices, whereas others are available across multiple devices.

Cooking Simulator

One of the best cooking-inspired games out there today that you may want to check out before trying any other food-themed game is the Cooking Simulator game, which was initially released in June 2019. It’s available across multiple devices (e.g., Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Microsoft Windows PC, Android, Xbox Cloud Gaming, Macintosh OS, and Linux), and It was made by a Polish-based game development studio called Big Cheese Studio.

The Cooking Simulator game is a simulation video game that really puts you close to the action. It’s one of the only games that has successfully managed to replicate cooking in a kitchen in the truest sense. You can prepare meals using a variety of ingredients, and you get to cook your ingredients on red hot stovetops and in cast-iron skillets. The game has been designed to appeal to a wide audience, and the aim is to master the art of cooking certain dishes.

You cannot play this game at an online casino or other similar real money igaming site. Instead, if you’re looking for a food/cooking-inspired slot machine to play, some of the hottest titles to keep an eye out for are, in no particular order of importance, the Spicy Meatballs Megaways online slot Big Time Gaming, the Chilli Heat Megaways online slot from Pragmatic Play, and the Royale With Cheese Megaways online slot from iSoftBet.

Cook, Serve, Delicious!

The Cook, Serve, Delicious! game from Vertigo Gaming was released back in 2012, and it has proven to be a hit over the years. It’s a restaurant simulation game where you get to cook some delicious meals right in front of you. It’s available across multiple devices/consoles (e.g., Android, Microsoft Windows, iOS, Linux, MacOS, and Classic Mac OS), and the aim of this game is to run a restaurant. You must be in charge of a menu, and you can win money by preparing the meals and getting the customers’ orders correct.

Campfire Cooking

The Campfire Cooking video game is slightly different to the other two games mentioned above but equally as fun. It was released in 2017, and it’s only available on Microsoft Windows (buy on Steam). It’s classed as an Indie game/puzzle video game, and the action takes place in the great outdoors. You’re on vacation, and the aim is to prepare meals over an open fire. It’s that simple.

Other honourable mentions

If the top three food/cooking-related video games mentioned above aren’t enough to whet your appetite and you still want more, some of the other popular games that you may also like to check out are: Overcooked, Battle Chef Brigade, Cooking Mama, and Final Fantasy XV (which has just a tiny element of cooking).
