Watch Chopped Junior

Some of the youngest chefs in the country compete on Chopped: Junior to see if they have some of the same skills that adults have who compete on the show. All of the rules are the same, and the prize is the same for the kids as it is for adults. The winner of the show walks away with $10,000.

There are three rounds on each show. The kids have to make an appetizer, entree and a dessert with ingredients found in each basket. The baskets aren't made with kid-friendly items, either. Some of the items that are included are calamari, various fruits and vegetables that some kids know nothing about and assorted pasta. There are a few heated moments as pans catch on fire and fingers get cut with knives. However, this is a show that gives children the courage to do what they love in the kitchen.
