Growing up, it was the influence of food television and writing that taught me how to cook and made me want to work in the culinary field. These kinds of entertainment were an instrumental part of my early interest in food. Now, I love to see how food magazines, shows and games have become popular with my generation and are at the forefront of pop culture. That’s why I was so excited to have the opportunity to go to the launch of the Gordon Ramsay Dash mobile game #gordonramsaydash! It’s a new time management cooking game brought to you by Glu Mobile, makers of Diner Dash and Cooking Dash fame. This title is the newest installment in the “Dash” series and was designed closely with Gordon Ramsay to make sure all virtual dishes, cooking challenges, techniques and curses are up to par. Not only is it addicting, but it’s a great way to introduce the restaurant kitchen environment, food terms, and even the Wichelin star system, an in-game reference to Michelin stars, to foodies and kitchen novices alike. I played the game at the event and could not put it down, between Gordon’s words of very tough love, and the suspense of seeing what you’ll make next it’s sure to be your next foodie pastime. The game will be available for download on June 29th on both iOS and Android. Download soon and get cooking! Maybe we’ll even get to play one another in a cook-off since you can challenge other players to chef duels!
