We are thrilled to introduce you to two adorable two chefs from Sonoma, California! Lilly and Audrey started cooking at the early age of 3 years old. They loved watching and helping their mom and dad cook. Their passion for cooking came from their parents who love to entertain and cook. They both love the creative side of cooking and enjoy great food. They try to change up recipes to be more kid friendly but still loved by grown-ups and they create their own recipes. Mom and Dad and many other chef mentors teach the girls their cooking skills. This past summer they had the opportunity to do cooking demos at large venues, helping to bring cooking from scratch back on family dinner tables. They also took private cooking lessons all summer long . For 9 year olds they love pretty sophisticated flavors, they both love curries and other spicy foods. Their food knowledge comes from their parents, chefs, food television and they read a lot of cook books.
