On Saturday, as part of the Offsite Challenge, the kids made bread roll and focaccia bread. According to Wikipedia, "bread roll is a piece of bread, usually small and round and is commonly considered a side dish." " Focaccia bread on the other hand, is a flat oven-baked Italian bread, which may be topped with herbs or other ingredients."

The Jr MasterChefs were divided into 2 groups, the yellow team headed by Louise and the green team headed by Gilbert. The two teams have their bad and good points. Eventually, the 6 points went to the yellow team and 3 points to the green team.
Whisking Egg Whites
On Sunday, the kids participated in the Catch up Challenge so that those in the bottom line could accumulate additional points and escape possible elimination. The first task was manually whisking egg whites, followed by cooking poach eggs. Egg poaching is the best and healthy method of cooking eggs. The egg is added to boiling water with vinegar while constantly stirring it.
The best 5 Jr MasterChefs composed of Miko, Caitlin, Gilbert, Jobim and Tricia, faced the Creativity Challenge in which each of them have to create their own version of a "silog". A silog is composed of SInangag (fried rice) and itLOG (egg). This is combined with other ingredients to come up with a ____silog.
