Coming soon to an American broadcast station... yes, another show about chefs. This time, it's for the five-foot-and-under crowd. Heads up Flynn McGarry, it's time to monetize your fame and talent. Lucy Lean, MasterChef casting agent, blogger and author, announced the search for 13-year old Mario Batalis yesterday.
Calling all chefs of the future – kids who can cook and are between the ages of 8 and 13 years old. Yes you read that correctly – I am looking for children who must be over 8 and not turn 14 before April 26th, 2013, who have a passion for cooking and think they are good enough to be America's first ever Junior MasterChef. Perhaps you know a kid who regularly cooks dinner for her family, or your nephew dreams of one day working in a Michelin-starred restaurant or your child has knife skills to match the professionals? Now's the time to bring out that inner pushy stage mum and help your kid try out for Junior Masterchef.
The show has already done well in international markets (notably, Australia), but this is its first foray into the U.S. Interested in entering? Complete details are on Lean's blog, Ladles and Jellyspoons.
