Jamie Oliver's 8-year-old just released his first cooking video – and the actual cuteness

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree...

Certainly not in the foodie-obsessed Oliver family, where it would be near impossible, we imagine, for the Oliver children (Poppy, Daisy, Petal, Buddy and River) not to take a keen interest in how to prepare good, healthy, wholesome food.

Just take a look at this adorable video of eight-year-old Buddy showing us all how to make the perfect scrambled eggs.

“Hi guys, it’s me, Buddy Oliver, and today I am going to show you how to make scrambled eggs,” Buddy begins – and with that, we predict, the next generation celebrity chef is born.

The video, which we must admit is utterly adorable, shows little Buddy make the breakfast dish he often makes for his older sisters – and does he not sound like the sweetest brother ever?

We must admit that although it comes as nor surprise that the child show an interest in cooking, we were a little taken aback by his sheer confidence and skill – I mean; this child is better at cutting up bread than I am – by a long shot.

He goes on to cut a perfect slice of bread out of a loaf of sourdough (which we all know is not easy to do) advising viewers to “use the length of the knife and keep it nice and straight.”

Honestly, his knife skills are totally impressive.


Having prepped the toast, Buddy then moves on to making the eggs, cracking them into a bowl.

“Dad taught me a trick on how to get the shell out, just use another piece of the shell,” the eight-year-old says to camera, providing another helpful pro tip.

“My pan’s nice and hot and I’m just going to add a little knob of butter. I’m just swirling the butter around the pan."

He then pours the eggs into the pan and advises viewers on how to make sure their eggs are not dry or too wet.

“You want it to be silky, but you don’t want to undercook it so it’s too soggy,” he instructs.

“There you go. This is my perfect scrambled eggs,” Buddy sums up. “And don’t forget if you like this video, you can subscribe. Now I’m going to give this to dad.”
