MANILA, Philipines -- After weeks of intense battles for culinary supremacy, kiddie cooks Cailtin, Jobim, Kyle, Louise, Mika, and Philip will whip up the best dishes this weekend that will secure them a spot in the grand finale of “Junior MasterChef Pinoy Edition.”

On Saturday, the kids had to conquer a Mystery Box Challenge where they had to serve up recipes from combo ingredients, namely raw mango and shrimp paste, pork and tofu, and gelatin and tapioca pearls.

The challenge’s five bottom scorers will then battle out in a showdown of mud crab dishes on Sunday’s episode (February 12), where host Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo and judges Chef Ferns, Chef Lau, and Chef Jayps will declare the Top 4 finalists who will face off in the “Junior MasterChef Pinoy Edition: The Live Cook-off” next Saturday, February 18.

More and more viewers are hooked on the culinary competition as it draws to a close.

Its February 4 episode scored a national TV rating of 24.3% versus GMA-7’s “Spooky Valentine Presents Maestra” (18.6%).

Watch “Junior MasterChef Pinoy Edition” this on Sunday after “Goin’ Bulilit” on ABS-CBN.
