The 20 hopefuls have to recreate in an hour seared tenderloin with mashed potato and buttered-glazed vegetables presented by host Judy Ann-Santos Agoncillo and judges Ferns, Lau, and Jayps.
Provided with the ingredients and the recipe, the kids will be instructed to taste the dish and observe its plating before getting in culinary action.
While cooking, the kids should bear in mind that the steak should be cooked medium rare, with additional points if the meat is perfectly round; they must be able to copy the mashed potato’s shape and smoothness, and lastly, the vegetables should be crisp, and the sauce should not be too runny or too thick.
Who will crack under pressure, and who will sail through the challenge?
Find out who among the aspiring chef kids will join Athena, Gino, Jobim, Kyle, Philip, Bianca, Judel, Louise, Mico, and Patrick to become the official 20 contestants of the kiddie cooking reality show.
Watch “Junior MasterChef Pinoy Edition” this Saturday, 6:45 PM after “Wansapanataym” on ABS-CBN.
