No stranger to television, we are excited to talk to a culinary kid wizard Chef Elliott Wakefield who is appearing on the January 29th episode of Stove Tots a kids cooking competition on FYI Television Network with his mother. Hailing from McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania; Chef Elliott has been cooking since he was 3 years old. He also has appeared on Food Network show Chopped Junior episode “The Curd is the Word” with judges Billy Gardell, Chef Marcela Valladolid, and Geoffrey Zakarian. Chef Elliott was sous chef to Chef Justin Rexroad at Culinary Fight Club’s Boston event and then went on to win Amazing Culinary Fight Club Pantry Race – Kids Edition in Chicago this past September 2017. Before outgrowing his peanut allergy, Elliott’s food exploration was limited. To fill the void, his mother, Robin Hann Wakefield who also appears on Stove Tots with Chef Elliott and runs Facebook page The Food Hag, pulled him into the kitchen to educate him on the complex and wonderful ways he could enjoy the world at the same time being aware of his limitations regarding the allergy. At 8 years old Elliott out grew the allergy and has been making up for lost time. Elliott loves Asian fusion! His favorite hobby is traveling the country looking for uniquely tweaked dishes that push all boundaries of the culinary rules. Elliott transforms his travel experiences into his kitchen to create unique spins on dishes of his own and shares on all of this on his Facebook page Elliott Eats.
