Samsung Junior Chef Challenge

Armed with Samsung’s premium home appliances including the new Flex Duo Electric Range with Dual Door, fresh ingredients and plenty of ambition, the duelling duos will race against time as they take turns behind the burner to create the perfect entrée and dessert – all at the same time. Expert judges will select the winners, with the winning competitor scoring $5,000 worth of Samsung Home Appliance products (and some serious bragging rights). In this case, adults need not apply. Presented by Samsung and CTV Vancouver.
