U.S. net FYI has set a July 23 premiere for the cooking competition series Man vs Child: Chef Showdown (pictured), which pits five young culinary prodigies against master chefs.
Hosted by Food Network’s Will Work for Food presenter and chef Adam Gertler, the 14 x 60-minute series – produced by Kinetic Content – will focus on five aspiring cooks aged seven to 14 as they challenge an executive-level chef each week in three cooking rounds.
Judges will taste each dish to decide the winners of each respective round, with the final round determined by a blind taste test.
Recurring judges will include Washington DC chef Mike Isabella and LA-based private chef Alia Zaine. Guest judges will include a revolving roster of executive chefs and restaurateurs such as Hubert Keller, Ludo Lefebvre, Mary Sue Milliken, Josiah Citrin, Antonia Lofaso and more.
Man vs Child: Chef Showdown is to bow July 23 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.
