"Street Food Showdown"
Eight talented young chefs arrive to the Kids Kitchen ready to
prove they've got what it takes to win their own series on FoodNetwork.com.
They are quickly put to the test as Rachael and Guy kick off the
competition with a mini challenge to determine which four kids will be on
their teams. Tasking the junior chefs to make a "family favorite"
meal that highlights their background and who they are as chefs, each
kidtestant hits the ground running to put their best foot, and dish,
forward. After teams have been selected and a winner from each team earns
the competition's first prize, it's time for the main challenge: this
week's "Street Food Showdown" challenge celebrates the mobile
food movement sweeping the culinary world, with each young chef creating
their own unique street food offering and presenting it in their camera

"The Chopped Challenge"
In order to be a successful chef, you must know your
ingredients. This week the kidtestants are put to the test in order to see
who really knows their stuff. Starting with a mini challenge where they
must rely on their senses to decipher ingredients...while blindfolded!
Then, the kitchen and the main challenge get a makeover -
"Chopped"-style! With a surprise video message from Ted Allen,
the junior chefs learn they will be going head to head with a member of the
opposing team in a Mystery Basket challenge and a camera challenge, judged
by the one and only, Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli. Who will come out

"Thinking Outside the
For this week's mini challenge, each kidtestant has the
freedom to make whatever they choose. There's only one catch, Rachael and
Guy will call upon the kids' parents to divulge which ingredient their
child hatesmost, with that ingredient being featured in the dish. The kids
will have to dig deep to come out on top in this "Least Favorite
Ingredient" challenge. For the main challenge, Rachael and Guy are
focusing on a food everyone loves...sandwiches! Rachael and Guy reveal a
table of sandwiches and the kids must use one of those sandwiches as
inspiration to create a multi-component entree. And who better to judge how
well the junior chefs perform with their dish and their camera challenge
than the Sandwich King himself, Jeff Mauro!
Premiering Sunday, September 7th
at 8pm ET/PT
For this week's mini challenge the kids will go back in time
to before they were a twinkle in their parent's eyes as they are challenged
to taste retro dishes that their parents were fed when they were children.
After the junior chefs each taste their assigned retro offerings, they must
recreate it and bring it into modern times. For the main challenge,
the kids will be asked to create the quintessential Southern BBQ dish.
Seems easy enough, but the twist is each team member must choose one of
four Southern ingredients to cook with. It's a showdown of a whole new
level when Chef G. Garvin comes to the kitchen to judge the kids on their
backyard BBQs and camera challenges!
Premiering Sunday, September 14th
at 8pm ET/PT
"Plenty of Fish in the
As the kids near the big finale, Rachael and Guy pull all the
ranks and invite celebrity Chef Robert Irvine into the kitchen to coach and
mentor the kids in the ultimate "Recipe Unscramble." Robert
presents the kidtestants with a recipe, but its steps, including quantities
and ingredients are all scrambled. The kids must first unscramble the
recipe as a team. When Robert tells them they have cracked the code, each
chef will execute the dish all while having Robert on their side as coach
and mentor. In the main challenge, Rachael and Guy will reveal the ultimate
seafood display: whole fish, octopus and crustaceans are on call as the
kids are tasked to take on these oceanic delights in an effort to impress
guest judge Melissa d'Arabian with not only their food, but their
camera challenge. Who will rise to the top in this seafood challenge?
Premiering Sunday, September 21st
at 8pm ET/PT
"Food Fest Showdown"
In the finale, all the mentoring Rachael and Guy have done
over the past five weeks is put to the test. Only one epic challenge stands
between the junior chefs and their own series on Food Network.com. The
stars that they have earned throughout the season will play a part, but it
all comes down to how well they can cook and perform at Food Network's
first "Kid Chef Food Fest." The kidtestants will host a food
festival where they will cook their signature dishes for a crowd of hungry
festival goers. One-by-one they will take center stage and perform a live
demo for the crowd that not only highlights their cuisine, but their
culinary POV. The festival goers will taste their food and watch their
performances, but in the end it is celebrity chefs Curtis Stone and Brian
Malarkey, along with Haylie Duff's opinion that will matter most, as they
name the winner and the recipient of their own series.
Guy: Kids Cook-Off is produced by Jane Street
