You’ve probably never seen an 11-year-old with better knife skills than Scarlett. Self-taught, this little culinarian was inspired by Food Network and the internet to get cooking because she just wasn’t getting the kind of food she wanted at home. Now after winning Rachael Ray’s Kids Cook-Off, she’s gone on to film her own Web series, This Cali Kid Can Cook. But she’s not resting on her laurels. She’s recently been staging at restaurants in Los Angeles, perfecting her craft before she moves on to her next adventure, which may be culinary school or business school.
FN Dish caught up with Scarlett on the set of her Web series to chat about her cooking inspirations, her favorite dishes to cook and the effect of her winning the series.
