Porsha Williams’ “Big Girl” Pilar Jhena Is the Most Adorable Chef (VIDEO)

The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum is so proud of Pilar Jhena (aka “PJ”), who’s cooking up Italian delicacies at 4 years old.

Pilar Jhena “PJ” McKinley isn’t afraid to try new things. Porsha Williams’ adventurous daughter has spent her recent days tasting tropical fruits in Hawaii and gliding down her very first water slide. And now The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum’s 4-year-old is becoming quite the little chef.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Let the record show that PJ has always had a “big girl” palate. Back in 2020, when she was just a year old, her dad, Dennis McKinley, showed her tucking into a plate of “big girl” eggs. And before that, her parents had introduced her to mango, carrots, and coconut cream as she got used to solid foods in 2019.

Fast-forward to 2023, and the Atlanta kiddo is already preparing her own meals. Porsha recently shared the cutest video of PJ cooking her own breakfast alongside her cousin Baleigh. The adorable clip showed the girls standing on stools to flip pancakes and cook up eggs on Porsha’s stove. (More on her luxe kitchen, below.) 

Now PJ has moved on to pasta. In a July 9 share posted to her own Instagram feed, the little one is seen standing at the stove, pouring heavy whipping cream into a pot of pasta. Later, she sits down at a white marble island to sample her creation. It’s a gorgeous-looking fettuccine Alfredo served with a side of peas.

The little chef’s mama chimed in on the comments, giving PJ some love. “Mommy’s big girl,” Porsha wrote. “I want some.”

Frankly, we want some too! 

PJ and Porsha’s Gorgeous Kitchen

As PJ develops her interest in cooking, she has a gorgeous setting in which to spread her culinary wings. She created her creamy fettuccine in the kitchen of Porsha’s new home, which The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum recently moved into with her husband, Simon Guobadia.

In an Instagram post from 2022, PJ’s mama shared a look at Simon in their stunning kitchen. Her video offered another peek at the diamond-patterned backsplash behind the very stove where PJ whips up her “big girl” creations.

Porsha’s video also showed the crisp white cabinetry, dark wood floors, and creamy marble countertops in the room.

We can’t wait to see what Chef PJ whips up in the gorgeous kitchen next!
