I had to tell you about my Little Chef. This is my Six year old little boy who has nicknamed himself " Little Chef". His greatest claim is that he has eaten in Rick Steins Bistro in Padstow Cornwall and the person he admires most from the tv is not infact Ben 10, although he is pretty cool, it is yet again Rick Stein. My son loves to cook and bake and when he is after a little special time for himslef he likes to go to the Seafood Deli on our sea front and have a look at the fish. The people who work there will get live crabs and lobsters for him to have a look at. When we were in Cornwall on holiday his Daddy took him deep sea fishing, now picture this.
The boat was full of MEN and afew kiddies but Litle Chef was by far the youngest at aged 5. The sea was rough and the boat was going up and down and lots of the MEN looked rather queesy. His Daddy was thinking "Oh Dear, he aint gonna like this" but no my little fella stood there like a real MAN and took it in his stride. He had no problems with fishing and caught his own fish, he took them off the hooks himself and lets just say that he knew what to do with them as he was going to be bringing them back to shore. He even helped Daddy to gut and clean them. there was a man on the boat who didnt catch a thing and my five year old gave him some of his own catch to take back home.
I think he has a genuine love for cooking and ingredients, he is always in the kitchen looking for was to help and can list the ingredients needed for many of the dishes that we cook. His speciality are "Little Chef Sandwiches" he can make these without any supervision really and gets everything he needs and off he goes. Watch out Rick you have some competition.
