Calling all kid cooks in Chicago: “MasterChef Junior” is coming to town to audition a new batch of contestants for season three.
The popular Fox cooking competition aimed at pint-sized contenders will be at the Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile, 633 N. St. Clair, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 6, as part of the show’s nationwide search for talented child chefs.
Eligible kids must be between the ages of 8 and 13 years old as of March 9, 2015. And needless to say, they should be able to make a lot more than peanut butter and jelly.
You’ll have to fill out a lengthy application first. That form, along with audition guidelines and other details, can be downloaded at www.masterchefjuniorcasting.com.
Last time the show held an open casting call in Chicago it scooped up a couple of kids who made it onto the current season, airing at 7 p.m. Tuesdays on WFLD-Channel 32. A repeat of a recent episode of the series, hosted by Gordon Ramsay, airs at 7 p.m. Friday.
