Not only do my boys love helping in the kitchen, but they also really enjoy watching cooking competitions, which is why they are counting down the days until the next MasterChef Junior airs. I’m always blown away by the young talen on this show, and have our DVR set to record the premiere on Fox at 8/7c on February 9.
Hosted by award-winning chef, Gordan Ramsay, MasterChef Junior gives extremely talented kids between the ages of 8-13 the chance to showcase their culinary abilities and passion for food. Chances are by the end of the show, you’ll be on the edge of your seat cheering each of the kids on.
After a nationwide search, 40 of the best junior home cooks in the country will compete in the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR kitchen, where they will face exciting challenges, such as a beach club pop-up restaurant, and surprise celebrity guests and diners, including world-renowned chef Wolfgang Puck and the return of the Muppets.
One talented kid will be named America’s newest MASTERCHEF JUNIOR, and take home the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR trophy and $100,000 grand prize.
Since my kids love being in the kitchen, we were very excited when we received a family box from Blue Apron to help us kick off the premiere of MasterChef Junior. Blue Apron is an amazing company that delivers fresh ingredients and easy to follow recipes right to your door. Inside our Blue Apron Family Box, we received two delicious meals for our entire family. It makes it extremely easy for busy families to still get a delicious home cooked meal in no time. In my opinion, it’s also a great way to introduce kids to cooking. My boys always jump at the chance to prepare meals from Blue Apron. Having all the fresh ingredients laid out in front of them, along with easy to follow directions, they make delicious meals time and time again. Be sure to check out our unboxing as well as the boys preparing the meal in the below video.
If you have kids that have already found the love of cooking, or are just starting to get interested. Be sure to tune in to MasterChef Junior on February 9.
