From Contender to Champion: Get to Know Gibson, RvG Kids: Cook-Off Winner and Host of The Jersey Shore Kidby Joseph Erdos in Shows, October 1st, 2014
Winning Season 2 of Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off for Gibson was pretty amazing, to say the least. This talented 12-year-old blew the competition away with his final presentation and a dish that won him high praise from the judges, including Curtis Stone, one of Gibson’s culinary idols. FN Dish chatted with Gibson at Alstede Farms, the setting for one of his three videos (you can read that interview here). There we talked about all that led to his winning his own Web series and what it was like competing.
But there was so much to talk about that it was impossible to cut the subject off at just his time on RvG: Kids and The Jersey Shore Kid. We wanted to find out more about how this young chef got into cooking in the first place, where his inspiration came from as a kid who began dabbling in recipes at age 7, and what keeps him still in the kitchen to this day — not to mention his dreams for the future as a chef.
