Another Chef, The Jr.


Junior MasterChef Australia, the best competitive cooking show, (not that I know of any else), by kids I’ve seen by far.

I am already a fan of MasterChef US and watching this somehow carries out that influence. Well, anyway, the juniors still manage to put up a great show.

I was blown away seeing for the first time little chefs cooking like pro. And I can really see their passion through the food they serve — totally mind-blowing. It was exciting and thrilling, and the idea of aged 8-12 youngsters cooking professionally just adds in spicing it up.

My bet was on the 10-year-old Nick. He did show off a great start (and super cute too with his one-tooth smile) but it dwindles down as the show lengthens. I saw Isabella on the top 12 and thought, isn’t she a bit old for this? The same goes for the 12-year-old Jack. No wonder experience has gotten them as far as being the top 2. Pierre was good, possessing quite a technique there too but was still eliminated. I commend how the scoring system goes, it was fair and square. The same as well for the good roles of the judges — they’re of good help to these growing talents.

Every episode of the show was amazing, just like MasterChef US. And I can’t, like for MasterChef US, wait for their next season.

And another thing, Philipines’ ABS-CBN, a broadcasting network already acquired a franchise for Junior MasterChef and will be airing soon (with host Judy Ann Santos). But I quite doubt if it will get the same fate as the latter two versions in Australia and US. My analyzation resulted to the culture of food we Filipino have. Unlike Australia and US (or Europe), some countries here in Asia give a little mind in presentation. Our food talks about taste, so you wont be expecting a regal, lavish, sensual sight of good presentation of food — that’s for some countries here in Asia. I’m a bit off about the idea of our Pinoy Edition. But I hope it’ll prove me wrong. Well, I hope I can carry out the love as well to the Pinoy Edition.
