The clip, which was shared last week on Ayesha’s Instagram account, starts with Riley telling her mother the dish she is making. As she battered the chicken in flour before frying it, the eldest Curry child said, “I am making a chicken piccata with mashed potatoes and honey-roasted carrots.”

As the video continued, Ayesha gave fans a glimpse of the cooking process, while cheering Riley on in the background. She said, “This is her first batch. Chef, what in the world. It’s looking real good girl!”

Riley quipped back to Ayesha, who made a living as a cookbook author and television personality, “I learned from the best.” The recording ended with Ayesha showing off the final product, which consisted of chicken, fried fish, mashed potatoes and honey-roasted carrots, as Riley poured sparkling grape juice for her family members.


As fans viewed the viral post, many praised both Ayesha and Riley. The comments ranged from many raving over Ayesha’s parenting abilities and the bond with her daughter to others expressing how amazing Riley is for learning to cook at an early age.

“Nothing like teaching kids independence early!!! Great mom great kid!!”

“Awesome sauce. You rock Riley. Keep doing just what you are doing. Mom, you are doing something right.”

“Great job Mom. Love how you teach, support, and encourage her. The mother/daughter bond is a beautiful thing.”

“When I was nine all I knew about food was to be on time for dinner lol. She is amazing!”

This isn’t the first time Riley has made headlines in recent weeks. On April 16, fans were shocked to see how much she has grown since her viral appearance during a 2015 press conference interview with Steph Curry.
