MASTERCHEF JUNIOR goes back for seconds! Hit culinary competition series MASTERCHEF JUNIOR gives talented kids between the ages of eight and 13 the chance to showcase their culinary abilities and passion for food through a series of delicious challenges.
Host and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay (Gordon Ramsay Steak, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, Gordon Ramsay BurGR) is joined by James Beard-award winning baker Christina Tosi, and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot (Graham Elliot Bistro) on the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR judging panel. Together, the celebrated food experts will 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, 16 of the best junior home cooks in the country will compete in the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR kitchen. They will face exciting challenges, including a mystery box, a three-legged race and the fan-favorite restaurant takeover, until one talented kid is named America’s newest MASTERCHEF JUNIOR, receiving a $100,000 prize.
