The Chew: Kid Chef
A young culinary whiz made her debut in The Chew kitchen alongside her own kitchen hero, Mario Batali. Kaitlyn Nidhan visited the show and cooked a Chicken Prosciutto Roulade recipe with Batali. Try this with your kids at home!
Kaitlyn said that she loves the opportunity to explore her creative side that she finds in the kitchen. Her passion for cooking is all her own. She explained that her mother does not spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Did you learn to cook from a family member, or did you learn outside the home? Tell me in the comments.
