The family of four recently attended a Food & Wine Festival by Disney in their California resort, where they discussed their nature series, and participated in a Chef Demo with one of the park's chefs, Chef Mo.

Ginger, Ben and Adrian took the stage to make a recipe by Apricot Lane Farms–of which a new documentary recently premiered on Disney+ – and the six-year-old's confidence in front of a live audience made his mom prouder than ever.

The anchor took to Instagram to share an adorable clip of the event, where the three appear in front of a large kitchen island working on their special recipe.
