New Orleans duo, Kaj Friis-Hecht and Liz Thorpe are showing off their excellent culinary skills on Peacock’s Top Chef Family Style.

This fantastic aunt and nephew team is being put to the test through a series of creative Quickfire and Elimination Challenges, all for a chance to win a cash prize and culinary stardom. 

Kaj comes from a strong background in the culinary arts. He spent his childhood learning the ropes of the restaurant world and crafting delicious meals. He was even named the 2017 winner of Chopped Jr. Kaj’s aunt, Liz Thorpe, is a leading cheese expert in the country, and her knowledge has led to a successful consulting firm and guest spots on daytime talk shows.

Top Chef Family Style follows talented young chefs who have teamed up their family members to “prove that their culinary skills are aged to perfection.” Watch a new episode every Thursday on Peacock.
