THE BRONX - Two of television's most popular chefs were in the Bronx this week for one of the best family parties of the season.

The New York Botanical Garden hosted Mario Batali and Daphne Oz from cooking show "The Chew." The pair headlined the Edible Academy Family Garden Picnic, showing attendees how to add a little flair to their homemade meals.

The academy is a state-of-the-art facility designed to teach people how to grow their own food in hopes of bringing a love of gardening to both kids and adults.
