Chefs with kids who are following in their footsteps

Celebrity chefs and their kids

They’re young, they love to cook and they just happen to have a world-famous chef for a mother or father!

Growing up with a famous chef as a parent must be an exciting experience. Just imagine enjoying a variety of delicious meals prepared exclusively for you with first-hand cooking lessons right at home. It’s no surprise that the children of these celebrity chefs are naturally inclined towards pursuing careers in food.

Discover which celebrity chefs have kids who seem to be following in their footsteps:

Jamie Oliver’s son, Buddy

Already popular on YouTube, it is hoped the 12-year-old could help inspire other children to learn to cook. Cheerful Buddy regularly joins his star dad in his cooking tutorials on social media and even shares his own recipes with fans. Buddy’s hidden-veg meatballs and easy pizzas were a huge hit.

Gordon Ramsay’s daughter, Tilly

The 22-year-old daughter of top chef Gordon Ramsay is carving quite the career for herself already! Tilly, full name Matilda, has made several appearances on TV alongside her famous dad to showcase her cooking skills, and she’s even published her own recipe book, Tilly’s Kitchen Takeover. Recently announced, Tilly will lead the way as the host of a cooking show called Dish It Out. In each episode of Dish It Out, Tilly Ramsay will receive a mystery box of goods from various chefs and home cooks throughout the world, which she will use to prepare a recipe.

Tom Kerridge’s son Acey

Celebrity chef Tom Kerridge is known for his many TV shows and successful restaurants, which include the famous Hand and Flowers pub in the Buckinghamshire town of Marlow – the only British pub to have two Michelin stars.

Tom, who is married to sculptor Beth Cullen-Kerridge and has an 8-year-old son Acey, shared in an interview with Hello Magazine how much his son loves doing a job. “He’s really interested in a job, he loves a job, something to do. He’s interested in the process of cooking because it’s a job. He loves having something to do all the time,” Tom shared.
