There's a budding chef in town and his charming personality is proving to be a recipe for success.

Roman Belville is a natural in the kitchen and in front of the camera. He's also two-years-old.

Roman's mother Ayla Belville is a stay-at-home mom from South Bend Indiana who has her own channel on YouTube. Her channel recently saw a huge spike after featuring her son in a video.

According to Today, the tyke with taste was always fascinated by watching his mom whip up fantastic creations in the kitchen. Thus began his culinary training.

Roman always wanted to be held while she was cooking undoubtedly so he could get close enough to the action.

When he became old enough, Ayla enlisted her son's help by chopping up ingredients with child-safe utensils, of course.

Because Ayla frequently blogs, Roman was always comfortable in front of the camera.

So Ayla and her husband Brandon decided to feature their son in his very first cooking show in which the toddler helped bake a cake.

"It was raining outside, but he didn't want to come inside," Ayla told the South Bend Tribune.

"So rather than fuss with him, I decided to give him something to do that would distract him."

After posting the video in August, Roman melted hearts with thousands of views.


I'm officially obsessed with Roman, the 2-year-old chef. ADORABLE OVERLOAD! Today's menu: pizza! https://youtu.be/6ycGBZDq1Eo via @YouTube twitter.com

"I can't even tell you how much Roman makes me happy!!!!!!!! He is freakin adorable!!! Total JOY watching him cook!! He speaks so well for his age and is so cute did I say he's cute?!," wrote subscriber 'Kamrin The Kapricorn AsMr.'

"I will never tire from watching him cook so please, please, more Roman cooking and baking please!!!!! Love you for making such an adorable little guy too!! Love and hugs."


Roman gained some admirers - about 36,000 of them so far. Ayla's humble hobby-centric channel had spiked from 135 subscribers.


















Even kids found him fun to watch.





Alya posted a followup video featuring the 24-month-old donning a red apron with his name on it and baking a pizza in an episode called, "Roman's Cooking Corner."

Because her channel reached monetizing status, Ayla and Brandon are considering allocating any funds that come their way via ad placements on the videos toward Roman's college fund.

But they're being cautious about featuring him in too many episodes on the channel for fear of exploiting Roman's childhood.

"Our goal isn't to make money," she said. "We'll do it as long as he's having fun and it's bringing people some happiness."

Sounds like a tasteful plan.
