The culinary awakening of recent years is not leaving anyone behind. It is well known that the TV culture of celebrity chefs and cooking related programming has awakened a surge of interest in adult chefs, but the phenomenon exists among the younger set as well. Kids are noticing what’s on their plates and become inquisitive about how it got there.
