‘MasterChef Junior’ Episode Guide (March 9): The Top 16 Cook for America’s Heroes

“Junior Edition: Kitchen Emergency” (03/09/17) – The Top 16 face off in their first team challenge, during which they cook lunch for first responders. Each team will have to create a dish featuring a delicious filet mignon and the guests will vote on which is better – the team with the most votes will win the challenge.

Then, it’s up to the judges to determine which two cooks from the losing team will head home in an all-new episode of “MasterChef Junior” airing Thursday, March 9 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Host and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay is joined by renowned pastry chef Christina Tosi on the “MasterChef Junior” judging panel. Together, the celebrated food experts coach and encourage the promising hopefuls to cook like pros and teach them the tricks of the trade along the way.

After a nationwide search, 40 of the best junior home cooks in the country will compete in the “MasterChef Junior” kitchen, where they will face exciting challenges, such as a beach club pop-up restaurant, and surprise celebrity guests and diners, including world-renowned chef Wolfgang Puck and the return of the Muppets.

One talented kid will be named America’s newest “MasterChef Junior,” and take home the “MasterChef Junior” trophy and $100,000 grand prize.

“MasterChef Junior” is produced by Endemol Shine North America and One Potato Two Potato, and is based on a format created by Franc Roddam and Endemol Shine. Elisabeth Murdoch, Eden Gaha, Robin Ashbrook, Gordon Ramsay, Adeline Ramage Rooney, Patricia Llewellyn and Ben Adler serve as executive producers.
