Laurent Tourondel, who has started restaurants around the world, says cooking is for girls AND boys, while New York chef Spencer Rubin asks: “Hasbro, please make an Easy-Bake for dudes.”
Joshua Whigham, of The Bazaar by Jose Andres in Los Angeles, says he supports making an Easy-Bake that’s more friendly for boys.
“I can understand not wanting to cook on a pink oven,” he says. “Ask Hasbro for a steel, or a black or a something really cool oven.”
Brad Spence of Amis Trattoria in Philadelphia says he has young children at home.
“My son, I cook with him every Sunday, so I’d love to see something like that happen,” he says.
McKenna’s mother, Erica Boscio, told The Associated Press that McKenna is scheduled to meet with Hasbro on Monday.
