Junior Masterchef – How Much Smoke And Mirrors Should There Be?
Well a successful first season of Junior Masterchef has occurred, and no child on the series appears to be scarred from being on the experience, except for a few burns here or there.
For people watching at home it was amazing to see how well these kids could cook with ingredients that are not the norm for most kids that age or for some adults.
They adeptly handle seafood, game, and even snails.
But as has been previously commented on in a previous post is it right for the producers of the show to “pretend” the kids were told the ingredient and then started cooking it straight away?
Photos on the website here you need to scroll through, show that there are recipes written out for them.
Also there have been reports the kids are told the ingredient the day before. Now I don’t have a problem with them getting the ingredient the day before, but should the show tell us this? Instead of making it look like they just cook spontaneously once they find out what the challenge is.
I see the pros and cons of both sides, and basically the more entertaining the better.
