Watch Out for the Little People with Knives!
According to the network, Bravo is developing a new series Top Chef Junior!
“The love of food reaches all ages and teens today are continually expanding their culinary knowledge – from cooking classes to kids' cookbooks. Top Chef Junior, which will be based on the Emmy-nominated hit culinary series Top Chef, is an eight episode series where teens (likely ages 13 to 16) will compete to see if they have what it takes to become a junior “Top Chef.” Magical Elves (“Top Chef,” “Project Runway,”) will produce the series, with Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz serving as executive producers” (Press Release/June 10, 2008/Johanna Fuentes – Bravo).
Does this mean we're going to get kids who know their way around a spatula and a Cuisinart? I can't get my teens to get in the kitchen at all – much less cook something. I'm not against adopting a child with kitchen skills….(hmmmm…..) but I'm pretty sure that I'm not going to give them any sharp objects or electric knives.
