Things are about to heat up in the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR kitchen.
Cristina Tosi — one of the judges on Gordon Ramsay‘s irresistible kiddie cooking competition is promising that season 5 is “by far the best season of MASTERCHEF JUNIOR ever.”
MASTERCHEF JUNIOR pits 8 to 13 year-olds from across America against each other in kitchen challenges that would shame most grown adults.
The ratings-winner returns Thursday, February 9 after a 14 month hiatus.
Season five will be the first without longtime judge Graham Elliot. He will be replaced by an all star lineup of celebrity judges including Wolfgang Puck, Mayim Bialik, First Lady Michelle Obama, Martha Stewart and Miss Piggy!
“We are really sort of throwing some curveballs in at these young home cooks,” Tossi reveals in the first look trailer released over the holidays by Fox.
Host and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay is joined by renowned pastry chef Christina Tosi on the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR judging panel. Together, the celebrated food experts coach and encourage the promising hopefuls to cook like pros and teach them the tricks of the trade along the way. 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.
MASTERCHEF JUNIOR returns Thursday, February 9 at 8:00 PM ET/PT on Fox.
