Most 14-year-olds working at restaurants are delivery or busboys, but a child prodigy at a top Beverly Hills restaurant is actually the chef of the establishment.


14-year-old Flynn McGarry, a three-year veteran chef, has impressed food critics and diners alike with his kitchen skills, and will head the kitchen at Beverly Hills’ BierBeisl restaurant next week.

McGarry will offer a 12-course meal for 40 people, charging $160 per person.


If you’re looking to go, you’re out of luck, as it is already sold out.

“The chef at BierBeisl is super nice and said, ‘Whatever you need, I’ll help you cook,’” McGarry told ABCNews. “I am going into this a lot more confident than other dinners. I started working on this [Thursday], running around town getting supplies. It is a week process, which people don’t really realize.”

Some of the dishes featured on Wednesday include a sunchoke confit with dehydrated graprefruit, followed by smoked sturgeon and beef with wild mushrooms, celery root, black vinegar and coffee.


What led to this child prodigy’s cooking prowess? It’s rather simple: he didn’t like his mother’s food.


Luckily, Meg McGarry did not take offense, but rather bought him cookbooks and showed him recipes on the internet to see if he could cook.

“It was after looking at all these cookbooks and going on the Internet and looking at these dishes that I thought, ‘I could achieve that one day,’” McGarry said.

“I thought, every time I try it, I hope to keep getting better and better. I just fell in love with it”

Preschool Girl Finds A Xanax Pill Inside One Of Her Easter Eggs

Roseville, Michigan, sounds like the most bizarre place in the world as a preschooler brought home a plastic egg that had Alprazolam (the generic brand for Xanax) inside.

However, if I’ve learned one thing in my life, it’s […]
