Now that we’re down to remaining 10 contestants, things are becoming even more challenging in “Masterchef Junior” Season 2, Episode 4 “Raw Talent.” The kids were put in teams to work together and create the best sushi boats. Read below for the full recap.

Cory, Jenna and Nathan were set to compete in a challenge in order to get an advantage on the next competition. Their challenge was to search for a required number of ingredients on the list given to them. The twist was the ingredients weren’t labeled. It means that they have to take a wild guess especially that some of those ingredients include Arborio rice, ostrich egg and star anise. You could really see that the three were very nervous while they search for ingredients in the pantry. Out of the 20 ingredients, Jenna guessed 10 correct ingredients and got the advantage for the next round.

The next round is a tag team challenge and Jenna’s advantage was that she will be the one to pick out the teams. First off, she chose Kayla as partner and then she paired everyone else. The other team includes Riley and Andrew, Jimmy and Ayla, Jack and Cory, and Ryan Kate and Nathan.

The tag team cooking challenge means that only one from each team can work at a time and they have to take turns in the kitchen. The challenge is a sushi boat that includes tuna, salmon sushi, California roll and shrimp tempura. The teams that struggled were Jack and Cory while Andrew and Riley seemed like the perfect team.

The judges loved Andrew and Riley’s sushi boat and their obvious teamwork. Ryan Kate and Nathan did well while Kayla and Jenna didn’t.

Ayla and Jimmy won this round while Cory and Jack were sent home.

The little chefs were really tested this episode but it’s a good thing because they learned how to work in a team. Overall, I think everyone did well. What do you think? Let us know by posting your comments below!
