Delicious is a series of time management casual games that is developed by Zylom Studios and published by Zylom, with the aid of Gamehouse Studios and Gamehouse. However, the release of the series' Honeymoon Cruise version is developed by a different developer, Blue Giraffe.
The games tell the story of Emily, a waitress who aspires to run her own restaurant, and who works in several other restaurants in order to earn the money to eventually make her dream come true. Over the several games the Delicious series counts, Emily's story develops and she starts running her own restaurant as well as helping others out in their restaurants. You follow Emily and her friends and family through several life stages such as her childhood, searching for true love and starting a family herself.
