It’s a battle of famous chefs as Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri face off to see who can mentor the best kid cooks on Food Network’s Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off. Ray and Fieri will be mentoring eight kid chefs on the series which debuts September 8, 2013 at 8pm ET/PT.
“Rachael and Guy each have true passion and dedication when it comes to working with children,” stated Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. “With Kids Cook-Off, they get to up the ante, and have their mentoring skills tested like never before, with the goal of insuring their team’s kids all succeed in the kitchen.”
The Details:
Over four episodes eight children are divided into Team Rachael and Team Guy, as they compete against each other in a series of challenges designed to test the kids’ culinary know-how. In each episode, the teams participate in a pop quiz crafted to highlight their talents in the kitchen, followed by a classroom mentoring session with Rachael and Guy, and culminating in the creation of a menu plan for the Cook-Off.
Guest judges, including Chef Richard Blais, Chef Duff Goldman, Jennie Garth (Beverly Hills 90210) and Marion Ross (Happy Days), will taste and grade the dishes and give each competitor a report card. The kid chef with the highest score on each team will be named MVP of that challenge and win a prize. In the end, the junior chef with the highest overall score will win their own web series on FoodNetwork.com.
Episode #1 titled “These Kids Can Cook” will find Ray and Fieri meeting the kids and choosing their teams. After dividing them up, “the kids are immediately given a Pop Quiz: create a signature dish that best expresses their culinary skills. Following tasting and critique, Guy and Rachael mentor their teams on culinary secrets and skills before the First Lady, Michelle Obama, makes a very special surprise video announcement explaining the Cook-Off Challenge. Each team is challenged with creating a fresh, healthy and delicious lunch to be tasted by special guest judge and teen star Stefanie Scott (Wreck It Ralph, A.N.T. Farm). Stefanie will give each kid a report card and select an MVP from each team who will win a cool prize, but the kid with the most points overall will be closer to the grand prize.”
