A group of talented young chefs are gearing up to put on a live show for Siouxland this week.
Master Chef Jr. Live is kicking off its nationwide tour in Sioux City. Siouxland News got a behind-the-scenes look at their preparations and what the audience can expect during this live rendition of the hit FOX show, Master Chef Jr. Four young chefs, ages 13 to 15, will compete live on the stage, cooking up recipes you can smell from the very last row.
"If you're going to come in here seeing this for the first time, it's not something that you are going to need a precursor on. It's something that you are absolutely going to fall in love with all of these chefs that are up here on stage," said host Maclain Dassatti. "And it's all about just enjoying the wonderful foods that you are going to be smelling as they are cooking them right in front of you and let me tell you, it is going to make your belly rumble, but we are all about that here at Master Chef Jr. Live."
These young chefs have been cooking up a storm this week in Sioux City in preparation for the show. One junior Master Chef told us his passion for cooking comes from seeing others smile.
"It's just so heartwarming to know that you can cook something for somebody to taste and enjoy and fulfill their nourishment and everything," said 13-year-old chef Adan Lisaula. "I am really excited to be in Sioux City. I'm really excited to see everybody that lives in Sioux City so you are going to have to come on down!"
