Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's twins have quite sophisticated palates!

In a new interview with The New Potato, Burtka reveals that their 4-year-old daughter Harper and son Gideon are quite the foodies, just like their parents.

"My kids are crazy eaters. They have incredible palates," the 39-year-old said. "Gideon eats everything you put in front of him. His passion for cooking and eating good food is in his soul. His favorite foods: Clams, sushi, octopus, grilled pork, steak, Parmesan cheese, ginger, mint, cinnamon and coconut. Harper likes very strong and briny flavors. Some of her favorites: Oysters, sardines, prosciutto, capers, duck liver, miso, and anything chocolate."

In addition to revealing their twins' interesting eating habits, Burtka also revealed they cook a lot as a family.

"I cook for them a ton!" he said. "I make ceviche and grilled fish a lot. We eat clams and mussels at least once a week, and I make a lot of sous vide proteins like pork chops, chicken, and fish to take out of the freezer in the morning and sear. I always have poached shrimp and blanched vegetables on hand. We also make tacos and quesadillas as a go-to."

As for his favorite part about being a dad, he gushed, "Spending time with my kids! They are everything to me. I love hearing their laughter and seeing them grow as individuals."
