Cooking reality shows have always amazed me. Mostly because I don’t know my way around the kitchen and I easily get flustered under the spotlight. Watching everyday folks being able to create wonderful concoctions while under pressure truly impresses the heck out of me. If it were me, I’d probably burn the set down and/or be banned from the show when I curse like a sailor on national TV after messing up a recipe (almost happened, but that’s another story).
Shows like Iron Chef, Top Chef, Masterchef leave me in awe thinking that there are so many fantastic cooks out there (and I can’t even cook an egg right). More so when Australia’s Junior Masterchef came out. My mind was blown away seeing kids no older than twelve years old cooking intricate dishes like it was a normal, everyday thing. When I found out that the Philippines will host a local version of Australia’s Junior Masterchef, I was excited at the thought of Pinoy kids brewing up awesome Pinoy recipes.
The show started last August 20 and are now filtering the batch of 60 little wonders to get the Top 30. Watch the trailer and be amazed at the cooking skills of Pinoy kids.
With Judy Ann Santos as the celebrity host and premiere Pinoy chefs Fern Aracama (of My Thai Kitchen), Rolando Laudico (of Bistro Filipino and a slew of other restaurants), and JP Anglo (of Mu Shu fame) as the judges, Junior MasterChef Pinoy Edition is set to find the best little Pinoy chef.
These are kids between the ages of 8 and 12 years old and they can come up with something this beautiful?
Wow. The plate looks absolutely gorgeous. I can’t even guess how to start making something like this. Imagine if your kid cooked like this? It’ll be like eating out on a daily basis. I’ll be sure to watch the next few episodes of Junior MasterChef Pinoy Edition, I’m sure to learn a thing or two from the young ‘uns.

- Dubbed my new favorite sammich “Spamzarella”. Two slices of sugar-free bread, one topped with #Spam and mozzarella slices on the other, both toasted open-faced until the cheese starts sizzling and then combined to make the most perfect semi-cheat snack. #makemeasandwich #sugarfreebread #sammich #BTMeats - August 16, 2017
