Archie Coffer: The Miniature Jamie Oliver?

Meet UK Koodie Sensation Archie Coffer

Two months ago, the big buzzword in the food world was koodies — kid foodies. And while the concept has been around for a while, it looks like the word has a brand-new poster child. Watford, England's, Archie Coffer is only 2 years old, and already he's being nicknamed "the miniature Jamie Oliver." He's one half of the father-son duo starring in My Daddy Cooks, a video and recipe blog with an international following. The toddler's father, Nick Coffer, has already signed with an agent, been filmed by the BBC, and has a book deal in progress.

Watch the father and son tag-team to make a vegetable frittata, after the jump.

It's less unnerving to watch Archie than that other infant with a cooking show; he's easily distracted and needs a lot of nudging as one would expect with a toddler. Yet despite the cute factor, the videos don't hold my attention — and I don't get why the kid needs to be in front of a stove at such a young age. What do you think of Archie Coffer?

I love that kids being in the kitchen is so encouraged, but it bugs me that parents are parading them around to be mini celebrities. let a hobby be a hobby, or even a passion, but let them be kids

I think this is a fanatastic idea! It seems quite obvious that he wants to be helping and it is a skill you use every day, why not start learning early? It's better than plunking them down in front of the television.

I think they could of come up with a better name Koodies = cooties. That's what I think of.

Why didn't I think of doing something like this! My two year old cooks all the time with her daddy and has quite a mature palate. Just today when we were making mini pizzas for lunch (her dad is the super cook, not me!) I asked her what she wanted on hers and she replied, "Old Bay and parsley."
