Do you know your sushi from your seaweed? Your curry from your casserole? Your churros from your doughnuts? Your gnocchi from your pasta?
This mission is for fearless cooks! It is your opportunity to go head-to-head with a team of bold chefs and battle it out to impress our Hive judges. Are you ready for some tough competition – and pretty delicious food?
Hundreds of ingredients
… And two judges!
Starting as a Commis Chef, you’ll earn your stripes over the course of the week in five different kitchens: Japan, India, Spain, Ethiopia and The Caribbean. Will you make it to Head Chef?
There will be plenty of suspense, drama, fun and excitement as the teams compete in fierce daily heats! You’ll need to prep and cook as fast as you can, you’ll have to invent recipes and create new dishes, you’ll learn to grow spices and herbs and to get the most of your ingredients. Will the judges be impressed?
The competition will conclude with an exciting Supper Club in the Great Outdoors!* Laid out for parents by the children, it will be an opportunity for them to showcase the recipes they learnt and the dishes they created.
