A+E Networks' Lifetime (StarHub TV Channel 514) is presenting a new cooking show competition featuring pint-sized prodigies taking on culinary veterans. After the successful U.S debut, Man vs. Child Chef Showdown will premiere in Asia on Tuesday, 26 January at 7pm. The show pits some of America's most talented young chefs against professional-trained adult chefs they look upon to.
The 13-episode part series follows a team of 5 up and coming child cooking wunderkinds - Estie (8), Dylan (11), Emmalee (12), Cloyce (13), Holden (14), who face off against a different executive-level chef each week for bragging rights.
On the series premiere, the first episode was titled 'Don't Under-ESTIE-mate Her', and Estie was introduced as the youngest chef on the show. She whipped up a dish - Korean Fried Chicken with Kimchi Mayonnaise and a gochujang gastrique.
Estie Fung who is 8 years old and she is also a half Chinese, has been cooking since she was 3 years old and is visiting Asia as part of the promotional tour for the show's launch on Lifetime.
We attended the Meet & Greet Session, and we were glad to meet up with her in person at IKEA Tampines. She created some exclusive recipes using IKEA's salmon and vegetable balls. These recipes are available at IKEA Singapore's Swedish Food Market for a limited time from 17 January 2016 onwards.
Thanks for the invite, and little Estie Kung is so adorable!
