Iron Chef America Contestant was our Cousin!!!

This past Sunday I put my Little Chefs to bed and then turned on the Food Network for some relaxation. Iron Chef America was on because it was being recorded as usual to watch at a later date. Little Chef Dad was about to change the channel when I said, “Wait!” That is Viet Pham. We had seen him in a previous Food Network competition so I recognized him. I said, “I wonder if Bowman Brown is cooking as well.” After not even a minute we saw him! Bowman Brown is a cousin! Viet and Bowman are the owners of Forage.

Little Chef A just a few days ago asked if we could “go to that restaurant that your cousin owns.” We told her probably not. (Forage is not a restaurant for Little Chefs. The meal experience is too long for little ones to sit through and properly behave.) Of course we couldn’t stop watching the battle now that we knew the contestants! But of course we had to watch it again the next night with our Little Chefs. They were all SUPER excited to have as they said, “a famous relative on Iron Chef America with Bobby Flay.”  Now they are wishing and hoping THEY can be on Iron Chef America one day!


I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!
