Junior Chef Showdown
Small cooks display extra-large talent on Junior Chef Showdown, a culinary competition series showcasing the extraordinary abilities of 10 young chefs between the ages of 9 and 12. Each week they face a Skills Test and a Cooking Challenge that determine who leaves the kitchen and who survives to cook another day. Tackling everything from signature sauces to delectable desserts, the Junior Chefs wow with their technique and creativity, along with their boundless enthusiasm and support for one another. Celebrity chefs Lynn Crawford, Anna Olson and Jordan Andino judge and mentor the participants, taking on the difficult task of narrowing the original 10 down to just three. The finalists meet in a winner-take-all battle for the Junior Chef Showdown title and a cash prize of $25,000.
