Meet teen chef Eitan Bernath: Drew Barrymore’s foodie guru
Eighteen-year-old Eitan Bernath’s biggest fan? Drew Barrymore.
The young chef caught the actress’ eye with his high-energy, over-the-top cooking videos such as “How To Make Belgian Waffle S’mores.” “The Wedding Singer” star, who admitted on air that her daughters turned her onto the teen chef, brought Bernath onto her eponymous show as the “Principal Culinary Contributor” this week.
Hacks such as how to make hash browns in a waffle iron and easy-to-learn recipes for comfort foods such as pumpkin spice buns keep his followers — Barrymore chief among them — clamoring for more.
He admitted that his parents were more excited than he was to be working with the ’90s star on “The Drew Barrymore Show.” “I‘ve seen a bunch of [her] movies with my family,” Bernath told The Post. “Generationally, my parents were fan-girling even more.”
He just finished binging her Netflix show “Santa Clarita Diet” this week — in between business calls and recipe prep.
“I know Drew loves pasta,” said Bernath, who appeared alongside Gordon Ramsay in one segment, and ate “Weird Food Combos” such as eggs in peanut butter in another. “She’s pretty game when it comes to food.”
Most recently, Bernath demonstrated how to make a massive cinnamon roll alongside Barrymore for “Cake Week.” That segment was shot remotely, with Barrymore at a Manhattan studio and Bernath stationed at his collapsible kitchen that he built in his parent’s garage three years ago for his YouTube channel. “When I need to use it, I have my parents move out their cars.”
The Teaneck, NJ, teen currently on a gap year — he graduated from high school last year and is set to attend Columbia University part time in the fall — didn’t learn cooking at his grandma’s waist. He grew up obsessed with over-the-top personalities such as Guy Fieri and appeared on Food Network’s first kids-edition of “Chopped” when he was 11. He also appeared on “Guy’s Grocery Games.”
“I would be asking my mom to make the guac burgers and beer-battered onion rings I saw Guy Fieri make on TV,” Bernath said. “She would say, ‘I don’t know how to do that, why don’t you try?’ ”
Now, he’s constantly scrolling through TikTok and YouTube in search of a recipe or bizarre kitchen antics — he’s cooked steak using a hair straightener, an iron and a blowtorch — for his next viral hit. “I’m trying to think what else I could [cook] steak with,” said the suburban saucier. “I think a blow-dryer would take too long.”
Another favorite? Homemade butter. “You just make whipped cream and then keep whipping it,” said Bernath. “It blows people’s minds.”
He also has some higher-brow dishes in his repertoire, such as pan-seared gnocchi with browned butter and sage, and, just in time for Hanukkah, donuts in cardamom, tahini, and blood orange and pistachio flavors.
“My dad is the latke-maker in the family,” said Bernath. But now that he’s got a few more credentials to his name, he may have to unseat the master. “This year, we’re having a homemade latke-off on my channel.”
