Two young cooks have faced some incredible challenges in Junior MasterChef to get to this point, but they still need to conquer two more rounds before the winner is crowned.
Excitement and nerves are put aside when their 10 fellow contestants rejoin the final two for a fun filled pressure test. But there is no cooking for them this time – it’s judges George and Gary who have to cook up a storm! The contestants have the fun task of directing the judges through the recipe via their directions yelled from the balcony over the MC kitchen. Screaming at the judges is clearly a joy for some of the kids, now they can get their own back!
Following the pressure test, George informs the two finalists they face two challenges. In each challenge they will receive a score out of 50, with the total score out of 100 deciding the winner. Can these kids cook to the stand- ard of a three-hat restaurant or even Adriano Zumbo for that matter? These challenges test just that.
The judges are presented with some fabulous dishes that display thought, skill, creativity and technique. And although only one contestant can win, a whole nation of children have been inspired and encouraged by these 12, talented young cooks.
