While some pro­fes­sions may seem like they can only be de­vel­oped later in life, pas­sion and tal­ent have no age bar­ri­ers. Culi­nary arts is a craft that typ­i­cally takes years to per­fect, how­ever re­cently, kid chefs have been prov­ing that age is sim­ply a num­ber in the kitchen.

Th­ese kid culi­nary ex­perts not only al­ready know the an­swer to the afore­men­tioned ques­tion,

they are be­com­ing what they want to be when they grow up be­fore they even grow up. With shows on The Food Net­work and Cook­ing Chan­nel as well as the boom of Tasty and Tip Hero videos on so­cial me­dia, gourmet chef-hood is in reach for all! But th­ese lit­tle chefs take it to the next level.

Kid Chef Eliana is known a amongst her hun­dreds of so­cial me­dia fol­lowe fol­low­ers, fa­mous TV per­son­al­i­ties such as Wendy Wil­liamsas Wendy Wil­liams, and ha has even been praised by the Travel Chan­nel’s Bizarre Foods’ An­drew Zim­mern. Her re­cent ap­pear­ance on Chopped has launched her start to be­com­ing a cook­ing leg­end!

Brae­den Man­ner­ing uses his culi­nary skills to “pay it for­ward.”

Just over a year ago, Man­ner­ing re­ceived a call from a White House rep­re­sen­ta­tive shar­ing a per­sonal in­vi­ta­tion from First Lady Michelle Obama to at­tend the State of the Union Ad­dress to be rec­og­nized for his work in his com­mu­nity. How­ever, at­tend­ing such din­ners was no new task for Man­ner­ing. It was just 5 years prior that he at­tended the “Kids State Din­ner” and was in­spired to be­gin his own non­profit called Brae’s Brown Bags. The or­ga­ni­za­tion uses Man­ner­ing’s skills to build lunches for chil­dren liv­ing with food in­se­cu­rity and ed­u­cat­ing au­di­ences on the truth of child­hood hunger.

Fur­ther prov­ing that age is noth­ing more than a num­ber is kid chef and Rachael Ray’s Kids Cook-Off Win­ner Scar­lettt teyear ago, this Smoryn­ski.

Just about one undis­cov­ered tal­ent quick­lykly found her­self serv­ing up her best dishes to the likes of Chopped cham­pi­ons, top chefs, and world fa­mous food men­tors. Af­ter go­ing head to head with other tiny chefs, Smoryn­ski was crowned win­ner which came with some pretty lofty prizes, host of her own web se­ries “This Cali Kid Can Cook,” and $20,000 to be used to­wards her ed­u­ca­tion! Scar­lett con­tin­ues to make her mark on the food in­dus­try with her sig­na­ture Cali cui­sine which is a melt­ing pot of fresh foods from var­i­ous ar­eas of the state and in­flu­enced by many dif­fer­ent cul­tures.
