Just Jack 2020 - Cooking w/ Self Taught - YouTuber Extraordinaire - Junior Chef Jack Attack
Welcome to our blog and online store.
While we all can say "I know what you did last Summer" perhaps what you didn't know is there is a storm brewing on a youtube kitchen stove with a personality to boot. As we know behind every successful parent there usually is a child in the background who is growing in the light, encouragement and support their parents are showering on them.
This is true for Wendy Williams Show producer Suzanne Bass and husband Wendy Williams Show Stage Manager Brendan Higgins. Both celebrities and personalities in their own right its not surprising right under them are their sons "Chef Jack Attack" as known on his Youtube Channel and Master Lego Wonder Pete Higgins.
The Higgins live in Forest Hills NY and love their neighbourhood and more than anything Chef Jack Attack is able to visit his favourite haunts to pick up fresh produce, meats at his butcher and seafood. I sat down with Jack ( Parents and brother in the background) for a Top Ten (a la David Letterman Old School) to gain some insight and some great cooking tips.
DISCLAIMER: Jack LOVES his Salad Set Thomas Fuchs Melamineware and uses it in his kitchen ! HA!
Question & Answers:
