On this morning's brand-new episode of The Kitchen, Katie Lee shined a light on a family-favorite recipe, a rich, hearty Beef Stew. Although she's since modernized the dish and turned it into her own creation, she reminisced on memories of her grandfather making this long-honored, tried-and-true classic. No matter your family's cooking style or experience in the kitchen, chances are that you, too, can recall cooking a beloved recipe alongside a loved one or close friend.

FN Dish caught up with some of your favorite Food Network chefs, and it turns out that when they're cooking off the clock, these stars are most fond of creating meals with their families as well. Read on below to hear how The Kitchen co-host Geoffrey Zakarian, plus Scott Conant, Alex Guarnaschelli and more chefs answered one simple question: Who's your favorite person to cook for? Then cast your vote in the poll to tell FN Dish who you most enjoy being with in the kitchen.

Geoffrey Zakarian: My two kids
Scott Conant: My 3-year-old daughter

Amanda Freitag: I would have to say my nieces, Lizzie and Megan. They are 11 and 14, and they are fascinated by how much I love food — and what a good time I have cooking it and what a fun mess I can make.

Alex Guarnaschelli: My daughter
Marc Murphy: My wife and kids

Tune in to an all-new episode of The Kitchen on Saturday at 11a|10c.
