Twin "koodies" hit Atlanta on culinary tour

Posted By on Thu, Feb 2, 2012 at 3:41 PM

After watching this video of underage twin chefs making an apple tart, one pressing question remains: what sane adult provided two 10-year-olds with chef's knives and a stove and said, "have at it, girls?"

The California twins, Lilly and Audrey Andrews, aim to be the youngest people accepted into the Culinary Institute of America. They have recently gained something resembling national acclaim, appearing on "Good Morning America" in December and teaming up with Cuties Clementines to do a cooking tour of the U.S. According to their blog, they will be making their first stop in Atlanta on Fri., Feb. 10.

So what's the verdict on these "koodies," or kid foodies? There's no doubt they have some kind of culinary chops. Simply by being able to prepare something other than a PB&J, they're miles ahead of just about every other 10-year-old in the country. But something about the way they speak sounds strangely scripted, and they're just a bit too saccharine. If the twins landed a reality TV show, one could only imagine that it would be the "Toddlers in Tiaras" of Food Network.

Even if the whole "kids with sharp objects" thing sends you into a state of panic, try to make it to the highlight of the video at 3:30. I don't want to spoil it, but ..."CHA CHA CHA!"
