16-Year-Old Chef Says Moto Stage Better Than Working at Le Bernardin, Eleven Madison Park

Is there anything we love more than precocious young babychefs? We can think of a few things in a few cases. But on the whole, these young whippersnappers say the darndest things, and we just can’t help but “b’aww” over their sweet cheeks and naïveté.

See: 16-year-old Boulder, CO native Aaron Kirschner, who, after stints in the kitchens at Le Bernardin and Eleven Madison Park, opted out of another summer in New York to stage at Homaru Cantu’s MOTO in Chicago under Top Chef: Texas alum Richie Farina.

Says dear, young Aaron of his summer gig: “I wanted to come here…I learned more in two weeks than all the time I spent at 3-star Michelin restaurants. When I do my stage I want to coming away learning something. I want transformation.”

Somebody’s ready for his own Bravo merch line…
