Host Rachael Ray is on the hunt for the best rising chefs in the country -- who also happen to be extraordinarily-talented kids. All-star chefs and surprise celebrity guests join Rachael in this special six episode series as they mentor and guide these young competitors through a series of tough cooking challenges and high-pressure obstacles. The junior chef that makes the cut will win their very own series on FoodNetwork.com and the title of Kids Cook-Off Champion.
