‘Top Chef Jr.’ Looks Oddly Delightful
excerpted from eater.com –
The Top Chef expanded universe is growing a little bit bigger with the addition of Top Chef Jr., a program that’s being touted as one of the main attractions on the brand-new Universal Kids cable network.
The program is hosted by Curtis Stone, the acclaimed LA-based chef/restaurateur who is now a ubiquitous presence on cooking competition shows, and actress/former beauty pageant model Vanessa Lachey. The format is roughly the same as the original Top Chef, but there are a few kid-friendly surprises like an “eat it or wear it challenge,” wherein poor Curtis gets doused with what looks like Dijon mustard. You’d never see this on regular old Top Chef, but maybe that’s part of this show’s appeal.
The food that these tykes cook looks pretty much exactly like what the adults prepare on the regular Top Chef. Guest judge Graham Elliot recently told the Hollywood Reporter: “These kids at 13 are good enough to theoretically be a sous-chef at a restaurant.”
