Cooking Masterclass Discussion For MasterChef Junior: The Top 10


I am late posting this topic for the MasterChef Junior show. It is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and I am “under the weather”, so that combo has totally messed with my time management. My apologies.

Last week’s show was just incredible. The production value and the creative measures invested in this show are some of the best I have ever seen on any show on any network.

I mean – didn’t you just love the whole Skype/tablet interaction last week? The young chefs were asked to connect with a family member who would help them with their particular mystery box challenge.

What an inspired idea! And so current and a propos considering that this is what these kids are accustomed to in this day and age of tech interaction.

Best of luck to eliminated Junior cooks, Tommy and Mollie. You are so talented and have made a huge step forward in realizing your dreams as a future chef. You can come and cook for me anytime at all. 🙂

Also, check out MasterChef winner, Luca Manfe’s weekly recap for MasterChef Junior.

It is a great summary and he adds his personal insights about each segment of the show. He is extremely knowledgeable. I have learned so much just by reading his articles and, of course, watching him on the senior version of MasterChef.

Below, is a video promoting Friday’s show. Looks like a lot of fun! Add your comments after the show.
