MasterChef Junior S05E05: 500 Days of Gnocchi

AfterChef Junior

The only unofficial MasterChef Junior after show podcast in existence. (Probably.) Weekly post-episode recaps and discussion with hosts Jenni and Stacey and producer Max, hashing out the wins and losses, coolest outfits, most GIF-able moments, dealing with our own personal youthful failures, and dreaming about who would be our best friend if we were still 12.

AfterChef Junior

In the first team challenge of the season, the kids touch both our hearts (metaphorically) and each cut of filet mignon they insist on feeding to American heroes (literally). Having no such responsibility, the AfterChef crew works on other important projects: admiring Shane's slam poetry, practicing what to say during an interview to be the next MCJ judge, and questioning whether anything in life is really fair.
