Children Required for CiTV Cooking Show

I couldn’t eat a whole one… Children Required for CiTV Cooking Show : no not to be cooked, but to cook!

I wondered if you might be able to help me in my quest to find children to take part in the next series of the hugely popular Saturday morning cooking show, ‘The Munch Box’ which is going to be filming in London during the Autumn. The show features a mix of cookery challenges alongside fun food-related games and the chance for the children to learn from a celebrity chef.

I’m looking for children aged 9-12 who love cooking, can do it on their own, and who have the confidence to come into a TV studio with two friends (who can help them out) to cook their favourite food in front of the cameras. In addition, I’d also like to speak to children of that age-range who are very vocal and have a great love of food to potentially be our ‘Masterchef’-style judges, telling the chefs what they think of their cooking! In both cases, we’re not looking for children who can sing, dance and have a background in TV performance, just children who can speak confidently and are able to cook or talk about amazing food.

I was hoping that you might be able to perhaps put something online.

As well as being fun, the children who took part in the filming last year benefitted hugely from the experience. Not only did it encourage their love of cooking, but one child became determined to improve his reading because he wanted to learn how to read complicated recipes. It really is a great experience for them so any help you can provide is hugely appreciated.

The festive season is nearly upon us and, this year, ex-Strictly professional Camilla Dallerup, who’s currently starring in Panto as the Fairy Godmother, is joining forces with Red Tractor beef and lamb for a ‘Festive Fairies’ campaign to give Mums a helping hand with their Christmas preparations.

In many families, Mum plays the role of the Christmas fairy. If it weren’t for her efforts, Christmas just wouldn’t be a success. But, for many Mums, and plenty of Dads too, all they want at Christmas is their own festive fairy to help them with the cooking, shopping, wrapping and entertaining.

Camilla Dallerup says:

“Christmas was always a fantastic time in my house. There’s nothing quite like mum’s cooking at Christmas, my whole family always looked forward to it for ages before the day. Every year my mum used to say how much hard work goes into the Christmas preparations so that everyone can enjoy the day, and I only realised exactly how much time when we started having Christmas at my house! Mums always appreciate a helping hand, so in my role as Festive Fairy, I’ll be showing people how quick and easy it is to make great food for all the family, without the fuss.”
