Piping Hot! is the fourth level of the Gourmand Land, the third world in Rayman Origins. This is first level where the players enter into the Infernal Kitchen, a place composing of fire, pipes, forks, and Baby Dragon Chefs. This is the second level from this world and eighteenth overall that's included in the Back to Origins mode in Rayman Legends.
Still in the Frosty Delights area, Rayman and his friends shrink down to where they have to go downwards by destroying the blocks of ice. Some of the ice blocks have Lums frozen inside. Once they get through the ice blocks, the exit is nearby.
Some of the many blocks of ice contain frozen Lums.
More of a transition phase to the Infernal Kitchen, the team stands on a platform that's about to collapse, and when it does, the team falls down to where the exit is close by.
Now in the Infernal Kitchen, Rayman and his friends encounter a fire breathing Baby Dragon Chef. This enemy can be defeated more easily by waiting for it to stop breathing fire. As the heroes continue, different kinds of foods appear, as well as more Baby Dragon Chefs. One specifically blows fire to a platform, which can be useful later on. Then the team shrinks again, and they have to defeat the Darktoons that stand in the way. The first Skull Coin can be collected by performing walljumps on two pipes close to a pinata. A Baby Dragon Chef is blocking access to the coin. After dropping back down, the first secret area can be found by dropping down again. Once the Electoons are saved, the team can move on and face more Darktoons. The second Skull Coin is located next to a large sleeping Psychlops. The players can continue on past the collapsing pipe to the exit.

Secret area 1
There are several Baby Dragon Chefs on moving pillars. The players need to time when to attack to avoid getting hit by the fire the Baby Dragon Chefs breath out. Once all are destroyed, the cage can be broken open.
The gap is too far to reach, so the team needs to grab onto a swinging vine to make a small platform appear. This will continue on for quite a while, as the heroes need to avoid touching the hot led that's underneath. Next, a Baby Dragon Chef appears on a platform that supposedly breathes fire when the players stand on it. Rayman and his friends need to destroy the Baby Dragon Chef to advance past the vent that was blocking the way. Then the heroes shrink back down to size. They will continue on by destroying Darktoons to where they see another platform that breaths fire if body slammed on. This is useful for reaching the third Skull Coin of the level and for getting to the second secret area. After that, the gang can go to the exit that's not too far away.
Secret area 2
There are sharp forks that will attempt to hurt the player if a red line that connects to the fork is touched. The team needs to dodge the forks while destroying the Baby Dragon Chefs. Once the players defeat the enemies, the Electoon cage will be able to be broken.
Back to their original size, Rayman and his team need to use the zip-lines to cross the hot led at the bottom. Along the way, there will be Baby Dragon Chefs attempting to breath fire at the players. Near the end, if the team takes the higher zip-line, the fourth Skull Coin can be collected.
The player will have to time when to use the zip-lines to avoid the Baby Dragon Chef's flame.
The fourth Skull Coin.
The players will have to do the same as the last area; use zip-lines to cross the hot body of fire. This time, flames will appear from the body, making timing more key to not get hurt from it.
As the team advances this area, they have to time when the flames blown from vents and the body of fire in order to not get hit by it. Collapsing pipes will sink down into the fire, so the team needs hurry when they can. The fifth Skull Coin can be located by using a tea pot vent blowing upwards to reach the pipe that has the coin. Now to get to the exit, the players once again need to use the zip-lines to escape from the flames. Then team has to destroy the Baby Dragon Chefs that block the exit.
The key here to destroy the Baby Dragon Chefs is to use the funnel to shrink, then stand on the small pipe that has no enemies on it. This causes the pipes connected to sink down, breathing flames of fire on the Baby Dragon Chefs. That will make the cage breakable, thus ending the level. The team then poses on the photoboard as the Magician waits for the total amount of Lums that were collected.
