This August, Food Network is introducing a cooking contest with a twist. The 8 challengers competing will face off to create an amazing dish – except this time, the contestants are all children! Host Rachael Ray will mentor these “Kidtestants” in the new 6 episode series, Rachael Ray’s Kids Cook-Off.
Rachael Ray will be joined every week by special guest judges including Robert Irvine, Sunny Anderson, Fabio Viviani, Amanda Freitag, Daymon Patterson and many more. They will help to make the tough decision as to which one of these amazing, precocious junior chefs will win as they tackle assignments such as creating their own signature pasta dish, whipping up “Desserts in disguise” inspired by Hotel Transylvania 2, and re-inventing a fast food classic. The contestants, ranging in ages from 10 to 13 years old, will face off for a grand prize of a $20,000 culinary scholarship plus their own web series on FoodNetwork.com. They also have the chance to learn from one of the most famous Food Network hosts as Rachael Ray shares her knowledge and cheers them on through the competition. Prepare to be impressed by these incredible young chefs-in-training!
Rachael Ray’s Kids Cook-Off premieres on Monday, August 24th at 8 PM Eastern/Pacific Time and is the perfect show to watch with the whole family!
