Exeter’s Fun Kitchen cooking school has announced the search for the next young celebrity TV chefs, for a new Saturday Kitchen spinoff TV series to show off their culinary skills and passion for food.
Fun Kitchen is teaming up with Cactus TV, makers of BBC One's hugely popular live cooking show Saturday Kitchen, The Roux Dynasty and The Hairy Bikers’ Food Tour, to find the best junior cooks from the South West to impress TV viewers with their cooking talents.
The brand new Saturday morning children’s cookery show, to be aired on ITV1 in September, will see budding young chefs face a series of fun foodie challenges and go head to head in the kitchen to compete in fun food games and cook-offs.
The London TV producers are working with the Exeter-based cookery school Fun Kitchen to find lots of local talented young chefs aged between eight and twelve years old who have a passion for cooking.
Producer for Cactus TV, Guy Lambert, talking about Fun Kitchen said their cookery workshops are “fantastic” and went on to say, “I really admire the work they have done.
“I'm really excited we're able to offer this new TV opportunity to budding young chefs from Exeter," said Fun Kitchen’s Joe Mann. "Having taught so many local children who love to cook, I know first-hand the skill and passion they have at such a young age, and what they can do with it. It's just extraordinary to watch them in action, having fun in the kitchen."
Organisers are expecting a huge demand for such a unique TV opportunity. To apply please visit www.funkitchen.co.uk
