Michelle Obama to star with puppets in new Netflix food show for kids
Michele Obama announced Tuesday she'll star in a new Netflix cooking show with puppets — which she said "in many ways is an extension of my work to support children's health" in her former role as first lady.
Driving the news: "Waffles + Mochi," which starts streaming next month, is "about good food: discovering it, cooking it, and of course, eating it," Obama said in an Instagram post.
- Aspiring chef puppets Waffles and Mochi will be joined by "renowned chefs, home cooks, kids and celebrities" as they travel the world on cooking adventures, per a statement from the show.
For the record: The former first lady and former President Barack Obama signed a deal with Netflix in May 2018.
