Precocious child chefs and foodies — a trend to hit the media circuit last year — apparently aren't over yet. Remember Greg Grossman, the 13-year-old rising caterer on the Hamptons circuit? Now 14, the kid caterer is no longer a novice to the world of publicity, and has recently landed a deal to develop his own television show.
At the National Restaurant Association Show last month, the preteen told the Chicago Tribune of his plans to help out in the kitchen at Alinea, shoot a TV series, and pen a book.
Now Grossman has reportedly signed a contract with Picture This Television, the production company behind Kathy Griffin's show, My Life on the D-List. "The moment we met Greg, we knew he was a one-of-a-kind-talent," said Bryan Scott, a partner at Picture This. "It's not every day you encounter a kid who goes to junior high school during the day and cooks with some of the world's leading chefs at night."
While I do believe that kids shouldn't rush to grow up, there's a pretty good chance that I'll tune into this show out of curiosity. Will you watch a celebrity kid chef on reality TV?
