Celeb Chefs to 'Wish' Kid -- We'll Cook With You!

3/26/2011 4:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Two TV chefs have stepped up to the plate -- and have offered to cook for a "Make-A-Wish" kid who was snubbed by "Barefoot Contessa" star Ina Garten ... TMZ has learned.

Food Network star Beau MacMillan and "Iron Chef" Michael Symon are both reaching out to 6-year-old Enzo ... hoping they can fill the void Garten left after she turned down the kid's "wish" to cook a meal together.

In fact, MacMillan tells us he's ready to fly Enzo and his entire family out to Arizona STAT -- put them up in a fancy resort and treat them all to a VIP dinner at his 5-star restaurant.

MacMillan says he also wants to bring Enzo into the kitchen so they can prepare the meal together.
 
As for Symon -- the chef tells us he'll be in Enzo's home state of Oregon in the very near future and would be more than happy to swing by Enzo's house to "cook a dish" with him too.

Bon appetit!

The fact that these parents would leak this to a s*** webite like tmz shows that they are a people of lower class of mentality , even if they have a kid with cancer. Don't bash this woman , she doesn't owe these people anything except a yes or a no! I will never give money to make-a-wish agin if this is how most of the parent/freinds/paitents themselves behave. Your illness or your family/freinds ilness doesn't excuse you from doing wrong things.

this is tupid , some (white) kid who has a diesease gets rejected and suddenly this woman is a villan! and why isn't anytone getting mad at the parents/family memeber for giving this to a lowly webite like tmz? I don't care if their child has cancer , if other people who don''t have an ill child don't act like this , why should an ill child's behave like this? leaking this to tmz? how lowly they are , not to mention they lied about their kid being terminal. white trash douchebags
