CINCINNATI--()--Bounty is helping the next generation of great chefs turn up the heat in the kitchen with Fuji Senkei’s launch of the Web’s newest reality cooking contest. From the creators of Iron Chef, the SuperChef Kids Web series launched a massive search cross-country to find the most talented kid chefs (ages 8-12) and challenged them to flex their culinary muscle for a chance to win the $5,000 grand prize!
“Keeping a clean work space is a guiding principal for any chef and with help from Bounty these young cooks can explore their creative passions in the kitchen without fear of the mess!”
In each webisode, these chefs-in-training face a new culinary challenge that put their taste buds to the test and allow them to flaunt their cooking expertise. Teaming up with celebrity chef and co-host of ABC’s “The Chew” Carla Hall (Top Chef), Bounty plays an integral role in all 15 webisodes, cleaning up the messes these amateur chefs leave behind as they let their creative juices flow. With guidance from Chef Hall and guest mentors, Chef Aaron Sanchez, Chef John Besh, and Chef Elizabeth Karmel, these Super Chefs will be sautéing, baking and chopping their way closer to the $5,000 prize.
Starting today, fans can tune in every week to www.SuperChefKids.com to watch the latest episodes of the culinary competition.
