Mini-masters of the kitchen

THE hit series Junior MasterChef returns to TV screens on Sunday, with Australia's Top 50 junior cooks battling it out.

They've got one goal in mind - to become the country's next Junior MasterChef and this season, the bar has been raised with even more spectacular challenges.

They will cook the ultimate cake for none other than Prime Minister Julia Gillard and there is a surprise international adventure in store.

Once the top 20 has been determined, the youngsters will make their way to the MasterChef kitchen to compete in all the classic challenges like the pressure test, mystery box and invention test.

In season two, contestants are again judged on a points system awarded by judges Anna Gare, George Calombaris, Gary Mehigan and Matt Moran.

The winner will receive a $15,000 trust fund.
