TV show description:
This non-scripted series gives budding cooks between the ages of eight and 13, the opportunity to showcase their talent, culinary smarts and passion for food through a series of delicious challenges and cook-offs.
Similar to the regular MasterChef series, chef Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur and winemaker Joe Bastianich, and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot man the judging panel. Together, the food experts coach and encourage the promising hopefuls to cook like a pro and teach them the tricks of the trade along the way.
After a nationwide search, two dozen of the best junior home cooks create their best seafood, pasta or dessert dish and present it to the judges in the audition round. Those who impress the judges continue in the competition where they face exciting challenges — including taking over a celebrated fine restaurant.
At the end of the season, one talented kid is named America’s Junior MasterChef.
This TV series has not ended yet.
First aired: TBD
