Top Chef Junior serves as a spin-off of the popular Top Chef series.

The series features 12 young chefs aged 9-14 from across the country competing for the coveted Top Chef Jr. title and a $50,000 cash prize. Host Vanessa Lachey and head judge Chef Curtis Stone guide the chefs through some of Top Chef’s most iconic challenges, including "Restaurant Wars", as well as new kid-friendly ones created exclusively for Top Chef Jr. The series – shot in Los Angeles – feature Quickfires, team challenges, and excursions within the city.

Ordered in 2008 for an eight-episode run on Bravo, the show never made it to air, nor known if any episodes were produced at that time. However, nine years later, Top Chef Junior was mentioned as the marquee program for Universal Kids.
