The Cooking tag refers to a genre of games that simulate cooking or include cooking mechanics as a core gameplay element. These games often allow players to take on the role of a chef or cook and engage in various culinary activities, such as preparing ingredients, cooking meals, managing a kitchen, and serving customers.

In cooking games, players may be tasked with completing specific recipes or challenges within time limits. They must follow recipes accurately, measure ingredients correctly, control temperatures, and perform various techniques like chopping vegetables or mixing ingredients together.

Cooking games can offer different levels of complexity depending on the target audience. There are casual cooking games that focus on fun and creativity where players can experiment with ingredient combinations and personalization. On the other hand, there are more realistic simulations aimed at providing an authentic culinary experience by recreating actual recipes and techniques.

Examples of popular cooking games include:

  • Cooking Mama series A long-running series that focuses on fun and accessible gameplay while offering a wide range of recipes for players to cook through mini-games. It is available on multiple platforms including Nintendo DS and mobile devices.
  • Overcooked series This cooperative multiplayer game challenges teams of chefs to work together efficiently in chaotic kitchens to prepare meals under tight time constraints. It emphasizes teamwork, communication, and coordination.
  • Stardew Valley While not purely a cooking game, it features farming elements along with the ability for players to grow crops, raise animals for ingredients (such as eggs or milk), and then use those ingredients in recipes prepared at home or sold at the local restaurant.

The Cooking tag appeals to those who enjoy food-related activities such as recipe creation, virtual food preparation simulations, or simply exploring the culinary world in a gamified setting.
