    Food Network Star Kids : Food Network

    The Search for Pintsized Star Power with the First-Ever Season of Food Network Star Kids

    by Maria Russo in Shows, July 19th, 2016

    We may be just a few weeks away from finding out who among the Food Network Star, Season 12 finalists will become the newest member of the Food Network family, but that doesn’t mean the search for Star power is ending. This summer, for the first time ever, Food Network is set to discover the greatest rising talent of the next generation: a kid Star. In the premiere season of Food Network Star Kids, the most-ambitious young cooks from around the country are set to converge upon Los Angeles in the hopes of making their food TV debut, and it all begins on Monday, August 22 at 8|7c.

    Over the course of six weeks, 10 fearless pintsized hopefuls will attempt to prove themselves worthy of the title of Food Network Star, showcasing not only their comfort on camera but also their culinary skill sets, which surely go well beyond their years. Just like the adult finalists that came before them, these kid competitors will come face to face with a series of demanding challenges to test their ingenuity and quick thinking in the kitchen as well as their ability to command an audience of viewers. They’ll be led by Cooking Channel sensations Tia Mowry and Donal Skehan — two food authorities and experts in the world of entertainment who know just what it takes to make a mark on the industry — who will both judge the kid competitors through their tasks.

    While the stakes in this competition may indeed be grown-up, the kids are kids, after all, which means that there’s no telling what tears and near tantrums may arise on set. But if these eager preteens want to be standing at the end of six weeks and earn the coveted prize of their own web series on FoodNetwork.com, they’ll have to rise to meet the demands of their mentors and prove their Star potential once and for all.

    Hey - pretty good end perks - special correspondent for The Kitchen and their own webcast on Food Network.

    So far, from what I've seen, they are all just too precious for words. Um, by that I mean they are on cuteness overload...including the hosts.

    I think there's going to be tears every week at 8:58pm.

    Yuppers to that. I think both of the older boys look to be in position to win. The kids need to learn to taste as they go, then the garlic or oregano overloads might not have happened.

    Due to the amount of interest, I'm combining this into one discussion thread for the whole season.

    Okay, there are four left. The three older kids and the one little girl. This show is such a farce, I mean really...the kids might do all right on chopped (maybe) but, I guess FN needs to throw in a kid factor. All of them have proven they need to develop their palates, that TV presence is not enough.

    FINALE!!!

    Amber won. Over the weeks she has loosened up with her camera presentations and her food presentations and flavors continued to impress the judges.

    For her final dish she made zucchini lasagne. The only substitute was zucchini for the flat noodles.

    They said she comes across as a food authority and that is what beat out the boys.

    I've made zucchini lasagne back in the day when bean sprouts were popular, only she used flavorful meats.

    BIG TIME MEMORY EDIT: Mine was a meatless lasagne where the zucchini was the meat substitute, I ran with a crowd in the 70s and 80s where Lentil soup was a big favorite. I think I made the lasagne in '73-'74 because I can see the teeny-tiny kitchen in the back of my memory. That was a time when zucchini, being cheap, along with cheese was a diet staple.

    Was Amber on a season of Master Chef Junior? She looked so familiar to me and that's the only reason I can think of.
