Forget calorie counting and low-carb diets. In Blythe Beck's kitchen, being bad tastes oh-so-good. The star of Oxygen's new reality series The Naughty Kitchen cooks up drama as the sassy executive chef at Dallas' guilty-pleasure restaurant, Central 214.
The 29-year-old chef is known for her decadent American fare that appeals to foodies of all ages. "You have to keep it really simple for kids, which works because my food is very simple," she says. "We have a mac-and-cheese that kids love, love, love."
Blythe's food may be simple, but it's often unexpected. The chef has never met a food she couldn't deep fry -- and that includes deviled eggs. She did it "just to see what would happen," she says. "It was actually crunchy and creamy and delicious."
