Toddler chef from West Wales is showing off her cooking skills on social media

Meet the two-year-old chef who can whip up spaghetti bolognaise, chilli con carne and a full roast dinner, writes Freddie Noble.

Oswyn Thomas can also make shortbread, biscuits, brownies, jelly, banana splits, Welsh cakes and pancakes.

The toddler started cooking when she was 11 months old, along with her mother Madison, 28.

When she was born, Madison said she didn’t bond with Oswyn as much as she wanted, so she started cooking with her one by one.

Over the years she has cooked spaghetti bolognaise, chilli con carne and Welsh cakes and the list is still growing.

Oswyn will take charge in the kitchen, measuring ingredients and knowing when the food is done.

Oswyn is not only a master in the kitchen, but also a super fan of Gordon Ramsey and Gino D’Acampo, who he will see on TV every day.

Madison, a stay-at-home mum from Pembrokeshire, said: “When she was born we didn’t have as much of a bond as I wanted.

“She loved her father so my only way to bond is to get her involved in something I enjoy and that’s cooking.”

“She absolutely loves cooking and it’s nothing I have promoted or promoted, she just did it herself.

“She makes a roast dinner with me perfect, we did a roast with a chicken and she (Oswyn) chose all the seasonings herself.

“She wanted lemon juice, chili pepper and a bunch of bay leaves and it tasted really good.”

Oswyn’s first experience in the kitchen was baking cookies with her mother so they could bond.

Madison said, “The cookie brownie was the first thing she mixed herself. She was just learning to walk.”

“I’ll never forget the amount of chocolate she poured everywhere and it went all the way.”

Over the years the toddler has helped make a number of classics, including Welsh cakes, cupcakes, chocolate blondie, shortbread and trifle.

Madison said: “She has taken it all on herself, she is so good at signaling and I don’t really have to do anything.

“All I do is film and edit for social media.”

Madison and Oswyn are in the kitchen every day, sometimes even twice a day, baking cookies or cooking pasta.

Madison said, “She’s my best friend. We do everything together now.”

Oswyn is not only a food lover, but also a big fan of fellow chef Gordon Ramsey.

She is obsessed with Junior MasterChef and Gino D’acampo on This Morning.

From watching Junior MasterChef and Hells Kitchen to Gordon, Gino and Fred’s Road Trip, Oswyn has been watching them for days.

Madison said, “We sat here watching Gordon Ramsey on repeat for hours, even when she was eating her breakfast in the morning and watching the cooking this morning.

“She just stared at him and didn’t do anything but just stare, but you could tell she was taking it all in.”

“She calls Gordon the angry chef, but when she grows up she wants to be known as the funny chef.”

Madison reveals that she is a huge fan and that they watched almost every show every night, ranging from Kitchen Nightmares to Hell’s Kitchen.
