Gregg Wallace celebrated “our love for our mothers” ahead of Mother’s Day by cooking with his wife Anna and mother Rina.
The 57-year-old Master Chef star said the kitchen should be “a fun place” where “moms can pass on their skills to the next generation.”
Sharing a video tutorial of the trio making the family recipe for flatbreads, he discussed the role of cooking together in family relationships.
“Cooking can be fun. If they do it together. It can be a fun place,” she said.
“It’s a place where moms can pass on skills to the next generation. male or female.”
Wallace, who has been a health and fitness advocate since his dramatic weight loss, asked Anna and Rina how important being together in the kitchen was to their own relationship.
“I think something like this is a really good example for kids to get involved,” Anna said.
“So if the kids are involved and they’re laughing and they’re happy and then you’re happy to see the kids doing things and getting dirty and if it goes wrong, that’s fine.”
His mother added: “I know… people work, they come home and they are tired. But this doesn’t take five minutes to be on the table.”
Wallace continued: “On Mother’s Day, we obviously want to celebrate our love for our mothers.
“And also what better way than to celebrate a family tradition of cooking flatbreads, a tradition that has been passed down probably five generations, I think.”
The trio then went over the recipe that uses flour, baking powder, a pinch of salt, and yogurt.
Rina explains that more yogurt can be added if the mixture is too dry, to which Wallace admits, “I just ate it.”
He later joked, as flatbreads were launched, that he had always had trouble creating round shapes, and instead was “very good at making maps of Africa and South America.”
Wallace has become very involved in health and fitness after losing eight pounds and, together with Anna and a variety of experts covering fitness, health and psychology, launched the Showme.fit website.
The subscription website is designed to help people lose weight, eat healthy and stay motivated, and was inspired by Wallace’s own weight loss journey.
Wallace previously revealed that he was warned he was “headed for a heart attack” and had seen himself “getting bigger and bigger” on TV before a doctor warned him about his high cholesterol in 2017.
