• This mobile game is sure to make your mouth water. It challenges players to come up with the right ingredients to make a particular dish taste better. A lot of other cooking games, including Diner Dash and Gordon Ramsay’s Dash are about time management rather than learning about cooking.”

    “Chef League is able to produce new insights (in the form of AI Chefs) which would have been impossible for humans to generate on their own. Even if you sat down and read through millions of reviews, there would be no way to summarize or use that information in a compelling way.”

    NICK STAGER – Contributor, HackerNoon

    “There are over a million apps on the App Store, but most of the titles you’ll find in the Games category are cookie-cutter variations of each other. Even the most beautifully unique games usually fit neatly into an existing genre. Not so with Chef League, a game (if we can even call it that) that utterly defies categorization. One thing’s for sure: you won’t find anything else quite like it.”

  • “It’s fun. I love it when I make the leaderboard! It also helps me diversify my go-to flavor fixes. I realized I put garlic in everything. It encourages me to try things differently in the kitchen too!”

    “For years I have wanted to learn to cook more intuitively – throwing things together that taste great instead of following recipes. Now there’s a game for that!”
