-Angelou Maya

Two protagonist:

I have had a wondeful weekdays the last 7 weeks courtesy of (starworld/foxtv) Jr.Masterchef. After a seemingly scripted Masterchef last season that fitted two protagonist to a Hollywood finale this time is quite refreshing for our kids in their palatable ingenuity.

The unassuming California kid Nathan was on fire to hold his own from the over rated favorite Andrew Zippley ,Nathan Odom is 12 years young competed in a dream showdown with Andrew Zippley 11 years young from New Jersey.The finalist had to prepare a three-course meal for the judges in 90 minutes.-appetizer, an entrée and a dessert.
Nathan's appetizer, was a roasted fennel gratin and French ham with a side of shaved fennel and grapefruit salad. For the entrée, the young kitchen wizard made a herb crusted lamp chop with faya beans and white asparagus puree

Andrew for his part made roasted fennel for his appetizer, beef cheek ravioli for his entrée and dessert risotto.
The judging chefs liked all of his dishes, but his beef cheek ravioli was a little undercooked, and it was the single point that probably crush his chances.


Me and my wife splits our favorites but, emotional i dislike the in between teaser showing Andrew showing some braggadocio. Like a proverbial "pride before the fall". Nathan nailed the win for his " game changer" entree. Though Gordon Ramsay was quoted he will cook to his mother Andrew's appetizer in praise of its great taste. But I was neutralized by Nathan equally superb baking for his excellent tart. As Gordon would put it “…visually it is absolutely stunning and absolutely delicious.”

There can only be one...

It was a thrilling season and a fitting finale. After watching early rounds of great and cute young cooks. Sobbing tale,some cuts, lot of sobs and parade of great foods.20 lads and even a tumble size kitchen apprentice, week after week, one by one someone had to go home.

In the end, Nathan Odom took the coveted plum and $100,000 richer to kick-start his family and his own dream of having a restaurant.

How about you did you enjoy the finale?

I absolutely love watching cooking shows in general, I watched the kids baking competition and that was so much fun! I admire anyone, child or adult who can cook, and am fascinated with many a cooking competition! Keep cooking!

There's a different magnet seeing kids doing something that even the adults find hard to master... most notably the art of cooking!
