Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this family-friendly series features celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito as he teaches regular folks to prepare great food in their own kitchens. It promotes the importance of cooking meals as part of bringing people together and celebrating family. The content is all quite mild, although frustrated novice cooks occasionally swear out of frustration (any swear words are fully bleeped). Young chefs will enjoy the easy-to-follow recipes and cooking tips.
Is It Any Good?
The family-friendly cooking series shows how food preparation can go from being a stressful, overwhelming chore to an achievable and fulfilling activity. It also shows how kitchen disasters can easily be turned into culinary delights with just a little creativity.
Unlike more traditional cooking shows, the series also mixes in humor as friends and family share their opinions about the novice chef's cooking talents. Watching the would-be cooks stumble through meal prep on their own also leads to some funny moments -- and on occasion, some strong language (but it's all bleeped out). Overall, the show's warmly positive message about cooking meals to bring people together and celebrate special occasions makes it a good family choice.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
