Aspirational and fun, Junior MasterChef gives children who love cooking their own chance to become a MasterChef champion.
Amateur cooks aged between nine and 12 years-old are challenged to create a two-course meal in one hour, showcasing their skills and impressing the judges with their enthusiasm and culinary potential. With the clock ticking and tension building, they must overcome their nerves to successfully rustle up their favourite menu, whether it’s a perfect roast dinner or an amazing dish they’ve created themselves.
Along the way they share their food passions with the audience and take part in masterclasses to improve their cooking prowess. Presented and judged by chef John Torode and former Celebrity MasterChef winner Nadia Sawalha, the series pitts contestants against each other through elimination heats to find the ultimate Junior MasterChef champion.
