Now, doesn’t this picture captivate you enough to entice you to flip to MasterChef Junior on Tuesday evening? Where else will you find esteemed chefs like Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliott receiving a healthy dose of syrup over their head?
Last week’s show was just exceptional. Oh my, these kids are talented culinary whirlwinds. I could not believe the dishes they were churning out!
I also loved the camaraderie and support each child initiated to their competitors. What a breath of fresh air!
For example, one young cook needed some more chicken broth and, when she asked another young cook if she could borrow some broth, the latter easily and generously gave her some. This would never happen on the adult show – well rarely, at least.
Although each child has their eye on the prize, you can see in their heart of hearts that they have easily bonded and struggle to see another eliminated or receiving less than stellar remarks from the judges.
This is such a “feel good” show in every way. It puts a smile on my face, a song in my heart and hunger pangs in my stomach.
MasterChef Junior airs on Fox on Tuesday, November 11th at 8:00 PM. It really is a “must see TV” experience.
Oh, and if anyone wishes to recap and/or offer commentary for this show on a regular basis, I would be forever grateful. There must be a culinary expert or two out there willing to add their expertise and insight.
And, if you live in the USA, you can watch the entire Season 2 series on iTunes –and relive the magic of Season 1 via iTunes – .
Finally, if you love downloading books, I highly recommend MasterChef – The Contestants and Judges of MasterChef and My Italian Kitchen – Luca Manfé. As you recall, Luca won Season 4 through his unique approach to Italian cuisine. Bravo Luca!
Have a peek at the trailer for Gordon’s Pancake Dunking Moment on Tuesday’s show! Comments are now open for business.
