NEW YORK, NY - August 6, 2015 - Food Network icon and best-selling cookbook author Rachael Ray hosts this six-episode series where the challenges are big and the competitors are - kids! Beginning on Monday, August 24th at 8pm ET/PT eight multi-talented junior chefs will be put to the test through a series of tough cooking challenges and high-pressure obstacles, as they compete for a $20,000 culinary scholarship and their very own web series on FoodNetwork.com.
