With a house full of children, and another one on the way, it makes sense that Tori Spelling's hubby Dean McDermott knows a thing or two about cooking up a kids' meal.
The reality star put his chef skills to the test on Tuesday night when he cooked up a fancy child-friendly feast – but for none other than a group of about 15 adults – at the Andaz West Hollywood hotel. To celebrate the launch of his lifestyle concept website TheGourmetDad.com, the proud papa worked up a five-course meal of his favorite recipes that appeal to adults, but also appear fun to eat for kids and contain proper nutrients.
"One of the meals was a piece of salmon that was made to look like a surfboard," an attendee at the dinner tells PEOPLE. "And there were blue mashed potatoes that were made to look like the ocean. It was really fun-themed."
Of the cooking duties, which were shared with the hotel's chef Jorge Chicas, the source says, "Dean worked away at it the entire dinner. He was decked out in full chef attire and seemed really into explaining the dishes and making sure the guests enjoyed his food."
At the end of the night, says the source, "Dean made these mini-Rice Crispy treats and talked about how they were a big hit at his daughter Stella's birthday party."

Tori Spelling has landed an exciting new gig as host of an upcoming TLC reality show, and luckily even with three kids – and another on the way – she still has plenty of energy.
"This is actually the best pregnancy I've had so far out of all of them," Spelling tells PEOPLE. "Knock on wood. [I have] no morning sickness and I have energy. [It's the] total opposite than other three."
Spelling will host and executive produce Craft Wars, premiering June 26, which will pit three everyday enthusiasts against each other in two rounds of crafting challenges.
"We are a very crafty family," says Spelling, 38. "[My husband] Dean [McDermott] is super crafty! He's the builder in our family. He's amazing at building things and painting them, and then I decorate them. We are a great team."

Tori Spelling's birthday gift to husband Dean McDermott? A love letter.
The actress posted "A Love Letter to My Soul Mate" on her website on Wednesday.
"I would dream of you for so long," Spelling wrote. "So many represented you. My dad. Every Ken doll I ever played with. Every prince in every Disney cartoon. The lead character in every John Hughes film. Not one guy I ever dated. And, then you became a reality."
Spelling, 38, and McDermott, 45, wed in 2006 and their relationship was documented on reality TV.

If Tori Spelling hit the sack feeling anything less than content Monday night, it probably had more to do with everyday issues than her minor car accident that morning.
"Is it ok to go to bed angry?" the mom-of-two – Liam, 4, and Stella, 3 – Tweeted Tuesday, including a link to her blog ediTORIal.
"All right, we've all heard the old saying 'never go to bed angry,' " Spelling, 38, writes one day after crashing into a wall at her kids' school while being followed by paparazzi. (Spelling and her children were not injured.) "But is it really possible to abide by that old adage when you're underslept [sic], overstressed and fed up with your partner's bad habits?"

Tori Spelling isn't letting "shockingly" awful morning sickness during her current pregnancy keep her from already wanting another child.
"It's funny," Spelling, 37, recently told PEOPLE. "We always knew we wanted a big family and we always said we wanted three. But since we got pregnant this time, four keeps popping into my head, and [my husband] Dean [McDermott] says the same thing."
Echoes McDermott: "When I found out about number three, I thought that would be definitive that this would be the last one, but we really want to have a fourth. It's really funny. It just clicked. We want more!"

Tori Spelling wanted to tell husband Dean McDermott that she was pregnant in a special way – and as fate would have it, the timing worked out just right.
"I found out on Valentine's Day," Spelling, 37, tells PEOPLE. "It was perfect timing."
How did she deliver the news? "I wrapped up the pregnancy test in a box and bow and gave it to Dean as his Valentine's Day gift," she says. "He was beyond surprised. Best gift ever!"
As for how she's physically feeling this time around, Spelling – who is already mom to son Liam, 4, and daughter Stella, 2 – says she's been "much sicker this pregnancy" than during her past two.
