Gibson on The Jersey Shore KidWinning 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.

Here’s Part 2 of our Interview with Gibson

Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-OffOn this week’s Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off, Restaurant: Impossible host Robert Irvine stops by to coach the kids in their mini challenge as well as help judge their culinary creations alongside mentors Rachael and Guy. We all know Robert is one tough guy when it comes to watching his exchanges with restaurant managers on his show, but we’ve rarely seen him interact with kids. Will these young chefs’ cooking abilities impress Robert, or will he be putting them in their place with his no-nonsense attitude?

Garvin, stops by to judge the kids’ culinary creations in the main challenge, which has the young chefs cooking the Southern dish of their choice. As a Southern boy himself, G. has an idea of what he’s looking for in the quintessential dish of the South, and the kids know they can’t get away with just anything when it comes to G.’s discerning palate. But it’s not necessarily the food that ends up blowing away Mr. Garvin.

Vote on Your Least-Favorite Foods as a Kid — Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off

Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-OffOn this past Sunday’s episode of Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off, the kids faced one of their toughest challenges yet, cooking their least-liked foods. And they couldn’t lie to Rachael and Guy — their parents were on hand to spill the beans on what the kids really hate the most. The whole idea behind the mini challenge was to, hopefully, get the kids to like those foods, or at least find an appreciation for them. And along with Rachael and Guy, each kid chef had to taste his or her creation, so there was no getting out of it. It’s worth mentioning that some kids didn’t change their minds!

Thinking back to when you were a kid, what was your least-liked food? It was most likely an ingredient, like a vegetable, that now, as an adult, you don’t mind or maybe even love. Brussels sprouts? Yeah, they stank, but wasn’t it always because Mom overcooked them? You know better that the little cabbages are perfect roasted or sauteed, not boiled to within an inch of their lives.

Jeff Mauro on Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off
On this week’s Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off, Sandwich King and The Kitchen co-host Jeff Mauro stops by to judge the kids’ creations, which have been inspired by some classic sandwiches. As the sandwich expert, Jeff knows a thing or two about what makes a good handheld meal: the ratio of bread to filling, the flavor, the ease of eating, etc. Now he’s looking to see how they’ve translated that to the plate. But will the kids be able to meet his high expectations, or will they let their nerves get the better of them?
