MasterChefJunior Season 7 Cheat Sheet

The future of food is in good hands! Chef Christine Tosi, MasterChefJunior

The little chefs are back on MasterChefJunior and the challenges are more intense than ever! And of course lots of fun including a MasterChef Junior Chef Sundae complete with a cherry on top!

To help fans connect to your favorite little chefs and judges we’ve created a sort of cheat sheet that links to social channels and websites. As you’ll see most of what we could find for the kids were Instagram accounts making engagement for live tweeting a little disappointing. But there are lots of fans who are following along weekly including @DivaFoodies. MasterChefJr pops in too so join in the live chat!

The MasterChef Junior accounts for the season 7 little chefs we found: Brielle – JrChefBrielle; Ivy – ivy_chef and Rhashad – stylinchefshad. Drop any links to the social channels in comments and we’ll update the post.
