When Chef Estie Kung arrived in the kitchen, she wasted no time in organizing her team of young chefs and allocating each of them their own area of responsibility like slicing the vegetables, peeling the egg shells etc. She then proceeded to cook a meal with her team. Although she is only 8 years old, the way she engaged and provided guidance to her team members is truly amazing!

Chef Estie was witty and engaging on stage and during the questions and answers session. She even joked that unlike other children who get to go for holidays, her trip to Asia resembled more of a business trip than a holiday trip for her.

A new executive chef will face off each week against the team of minor masters. The competitors’ overall aptitude and areas of expertise will be tested in three dynamic cooking rounds as they’re challenged to create a different dish, under unusual circumstances.
