54.8 kids chefs

  1. 1. Gone were the days when parents only wished their children to grow up to become lawyers, doctors and engineers. In many countries, a career in hotel and restaurant operations whether in the front of the house or the kitchen can be highly rewarding. The successful chef can sometimes be given the opportunity to work in different parts of the world and earn big money. The interest in cooking is something that can develop very early in children since they are exposed to this on a daily basis at home especially if their family prepares delicious meals at home. For the few little ones who do not spend all day on the computer, playing house is one of the first games children play with their friends and siblings. This involves pretend cooking which if developed further can grow into an interest in becoming a professional. Being a very fun interactive activity, children can easily fall in love with the joy of cooking, usually starting off by helping their moms prepare home-cooked meals. They then progress to making their own cookies and muffins if baking is their interest. They start to be called kid chefs the moment their simple curiosity develops into a keen interest and passion to explore it further. Some start attending cooking classes or simply cook a lot at home, experimenting on ingredient combinations or religiously following their recipe books. To nurture this further doting parents even buy uniforms, tools and the works so that their child really looks and feels like a pro. Strictly speaking, a child cannot be considered a chef as the word pertains to a professional, educated and skilled in the different aspects of food preparation. The term kid chef is not usually treated so seriously such that people will question it.
  2. 2. There are the occasional rare prodigies like ten-year old children who have successfully published a cookbook or are able to prepare complex dishes that only adults can execute. There are also cooking competitions that target children of different ages as contestants. One very popular syndicated show is Junior Master Chef which is a spin off from a similar concept for adults where over a dozen contestants vie for the title battling it out in weekly challenges. It is amazing to watch kids as young as eight years old create wonderful dishes and plate them up almost to professional standards. If your child shows great interest in culinary arts, then by all means nurture this gift but be prepared to pay a pretty penny for cooking classes! Another way is to expose the child to real life situations where he or she can learn from professionals. While cooking at home, make sure to properly supervise children especially if they’re very young and dealing with sharp tools and cooking equipment.
