Celebrity Chef Kids

Two Highland Park, IL, elementary students are enjoying celebrity chef status as the stars of a cooking show featured on the newest children’s internet destination, KidzClix.net. Los Angeles filmmaker Johnny White, who produces the delightful cooking segments for KidzClix each month, flew into Highland Park earlier this year to film best friends  Lindsey Kourafas and Morgan Small, second graders at Red Oak Elementary School, making their favorite recipe, “Mini-Cheesecakes.”  You can view it at: http://www.kidzclix.net/learn_more/mini_cheesecakes.php

The cooking segments, called “Kidz Kitchen,” are unique because kids who love to cook have an opportunity to show their talents to the world.  Children visiting the site can view kids making a variety of recipes for all skill levels.  Beginning young chefs will have fun trying Eggs in a Basket or Chocolate-Covered Pretzels, while more adventurous cooks can try their hand at Empanadas or Lemon Pepper Pasta.

“I’ve love filming the Kidz Kitchen series because these kids are so enthusiastic about cooking, and it’s amazing how many of them are really talented in the kitchen,” says filmmaker White, who has helped produce a variety of movies and TV shows in Hollywood.

Kidz Kitchen will soon be going international with the addition of several cooking segments that White captured while traveling through Europe earlier this year, including some aspiring young chefs from the UK and the Netherlands. White hopes to begin filming children in India and Africa in the near future.
