The show follows two best friends, Waffles and Mochi, who dream of becoming chefs.

The duo, and Mrs. Obama, is set to blast off on global ingredient missions, travelling to kitchens, restaurants, farms, and homes all over the world, cooking up recipes with everyday ingredients alongside renowned chefs, home cooks, kids, and celebrities.

Waffles and Mochi is “an exciting invitation to get kids and grown-ups cooking together in the kitchen and connecting to cultures around the globe,” according to Netflix.
