Meet 'One of the Country's Hottest Chefs,' 13 Year Old Flynn McGarry

New, 11 comments

NBC Nightly News is the nation's culinary arbiter. It astutely identifies the food trends of tomorrow and the top tastemakers behind them. To wit, here's a recent segment about "one of the country’s hottest chefs," Flynn McGarry, a 13 year old "culinary prodigy" whose "delicacies are already pleasing some of the most discerning palates." Yes this very much is for real: NBC News even scored some footage at McGarry's nine-course pop-up at "one of LA's hippest eateries," Playa. Said Playa chef John Sedlar, "Flynn's a very unusual young man and he's very passionate."

But probably the best bit from the segment features the inside of his bedroom. It's not a bedroom. He turned it into a fully-functional kitchen. His goal, surprise, is three Michelin stars and to be in the top five of the World's 50 Best. Said his mom: "Sometimes I sort of think that he's like you know reincarnated from like a French chef you know in the 1920s or something." Watch:

NYC's Greg Grossman is looking pretty old these days.
