5 Year Old Chef with His Own Cooking Show

cookingBobby Flay and Rachel Ray might want to hold on tight to their cooking shows. There's a new kid on the block, and I do mean kid.

Chef Julian Kreusser, 5, has his own show on Portland public access, "Big Kitchen With Food." His mother is the "director," his dad (who works at the station) is camera man and editor.
