Kid Chef FoodTV shows, like Chef Gordon Ramsay’s MasterChef Junior and Food Network’s Chopped Junior and Kids Baking Championship, are shining the spotlight on kids who like to cook or bake. However, before these little chefs were on TV they were home cooks, probably a lot like your children, who developed a passion for creating and sharing delicious food.
“I’ve always said that I think females make the best chefs anywhere in the world. – Chef Gordon Ramsay
Chef Ramsay’s quote seems like the perfect way to introduce you to Diva Foodies Kid Chef Kiana T. Kiana is 12-years old and in the 6th grade. As the photos she shared with us show she enjoys baking for her family and friends. We’d love one of her Divalicious cupcakes!
Diva Foodies: Do you remember what was the first dish you ever cooked or baked?
Kid Chef Kiana T: Probably chocolate chip cookies with my Grandma.
Diva Foodies: How old were you when you first started cooking and baking?
Kid Chef Kiana T: Around 4 or 5.
Diva Foodies: We understand that you’re an amazing baker! What is your “signature” or favorite to bake and why?
Kid Chef Kiana T: Me and my sister have this two layer chocolate cake that we make all the time, its really fun making it (especially the frosting).

Diva Foodies Dad Dave – When did you realize your daughter loved to cook and bake?
