Our beloved culinary cutie wants her critics to know she just wants to make the world a happier place through the magic of a tasty meal! This comes straight from Mama’s mouth, courtesy of the press release issued on her behalf by Majesco Entertainment in response to PETA’s recently released flash game, Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals.
“I would never put rat in my Ratatouille,” said a feisty Mama while beating some eggs. “Like any accomplished cook, I create my recipes to appeal to a broad range of tastes and preferences. My only goal is to ensure you leave the table well fed.”
The press release highlights the more than 25 vegetarian-friendly recipes available in the new game, in addition to an international selection of decidedly carnivorous creations like ginger pork and octopus dumplings. And though Mama herself is not a vegetarian, she fully supports the humane treatment of animals, particularly for her canine protege Max, who will be making his doggie debut in Cooking Mama: World Kitchen, which releases this week for the Nintendo Wii.
Damn you PETA, don’t you know it’s we who should be grovelling for the tiniest morsel of Mama’s approval, not vice versa!
