Next Episode of Chopped Junior is
The stakes will be big, but the competitors small as junior chefs ages 10 to 14 compete for a chance to earn the title of Chopped Junior Champion on the new series Chopped Junior, premiering Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 8|7c. They bring their unbridled energy, limitless talent and big personalities to the Chopped kitchen. Like in regular Chopped, $10,000 is on the line, but only one kid can win the monetary prize. In addition to the regular judges, renowned chefs and celebrities will take seats behind the judges' table, including Sam Kass, Sam Talbot, Michelle Bernstein, Martha Stewart, Laila Ali, Valerie Bertinelli, Mila Kunis and Hayden Panettiere.
The junior chefs must integrate the mystery basket ingredients into taco-inspired dishes; chef Scott Conant, Food Network star finalist Martita Jara and actress Kym Whitley serve as judges.
The chefs cook breakfast, lunch and dinner for the judges; breakfast consists of Middle Eastern pancakes and cotton candy; for lunch, the chefs must use frozen fast food and raw burgers; finalists make dinner with a cut of lamb and an Arabic dessert.
A new batch of kids celebrate mac and cheese in all three rounds, beginning with appetizers containing the ready-to-make version. A bright orange snack and fancy cheese must work their way into entrees, then in the final round, even the judges -- actress Betsy Brandt and chefs Marc Murphy and Nguyen Tran -- are surprised to see how mac and cheese can be interpreted in dessert form.
