Top Chef Jr features son of teacher!


Social Studies teacher Eric Fleming's 13 year-old son Milo makes his national tv debut Friday evening in the premiere of Top Chef Jr.  From a contestant list of 22, Milo made the cut to the 12 featured in the Universal Kids series that runs through January, 

Fleming says he cannot tell South High what dish Milo will serve up Friday, and is sworn and signed to secrecy throughout the show's season.

But, he does say Milo cooks 3-5 dinners a week at home and adds, "He would cook more, but his homework gets in the way."

Fleming also shares something echoed in press coverage, "Milo makes all sorts of things, but he's most passionate about cooking dishes that bring together different Asian flavors - Asian Fusion."

He calls himself the “Picasso of Food!” Milo’s favorite type of cuisine to prepare at home is Asian-inspired food because he loves working with the interesting flavors. A comedic personality, he stands out as a fun-loving, spirited, and talented chef."
