White House Easter Egg Roll Chefs

Chosen chefs hail from close to home -- Spike Mendelsohn (Good Stuff Eatery, We the Pizza) and B. Smith (B. Smith's) -- and the West Coast, where cookbook author and blogger Katie Chin is based.

The youngest chef, 14-year-old wunderkind Flynn McGarry, discovered a passion for cooking at age 10 and now runs a monthly supper club.

Rounding out the lineup are two popular Food Network stars, Ina Garten and Anne Burrell.

The subject of much speculation due to sequestration cuts, the 2013 White House Easter Egg Roll is still scheduled for Monday.
