‘Kitchen Whiz’ premieres on Discovery Kids

Follow two teams of junior chefs face-off to score the most points in Kitchen Whiz, a fast and fabulous kids’ game show with a focus on the world of food, cooking, and food science.

In each episode, the contestants compete in fun, messy, tactile tasks as they take on challenges posed by host Alice Zaslavsky.


Along the way, they find out interesting facts about food, cooking styles, and ingredients. Kitchen Whiz is on Discovery Kids weekdays at 5.30 p.m. this month.

Kitchen Whiz is a food competition show for kids aged 12-14 years old. They will be having a sizzling good time – and feeling the heat – as they try to out-do each other and take home great prizes.

The host, self-confessed “food nerd” Zaslavsky, will give the two teams different tasks. In the first round, the master chef hopefuls take the Food Facts quiz, which focuses on the ingredients, taste, texture of a particular dish, and cooking style. They will earn a point for each question they get right. Round Two is called ‘We Show! You Do!’ where contestants have three minutes to replicate a recipe demonstrated by a celebrity chef. Points are earned for each correct step, and teams can score bonus points if they successfully recreated the entire dish.

Then, the teams face the ‘Kitchen Ninja’ – a silent but hilarious master in the art of quick cooking. Will the dishes pass the Kitchen Ninja’s taste test? The scores are tallied up and the winning team is announced. The show does not stop here, as the Kitchen Ninja dishes out a bonus challenge called Alphabet Soup and contestants must draw on their spelling skills. But this isn’t a regular spelling bee… Catch the excitement and join the teams as they race around the super-stocked Kitchen Whiz Pantry! Episodes encore 5:30 p.m. weekdays.
