In this episode Cannon and Gabe are challenged to create an appetizer using a secret ingredient that neither have ever tasted! What’s the secret ingredient? Watch and find out. Cannon and Gabe have 30 minutes to prepare and cook their appetizers to completion.

This episode of Superchef Kids is out of this world when Cannon and Eliana take their turn competing to see who can craft the best themed burger in less than 20 minutes. The theme? Outer space! Cannon has one whisk on his apron and has been perfecting his hamburger building skills at home, but Eliana also has one whisk and a go-to spice combo that never fails. Whoever wins this round will have the edge in making it to the semifinals. Judges Chef Besh and Chef Sanchez, plus special guest grilling expert Elizabeth Karmel, rate each competitor based on taste, presentation and cleanliness.
Both contestants get creative with the fun space theme. Cannon’s alien burger is playful and the young chef keeps a green color scheme by using cilantro and green onion in his recipe. Eliana’s planet burger explores the different planets of our solar system with onion rings for Saturn and fresh lettuce for Earth’s green continents.
Eliana admits she’s gotten to know Cannon during this competition and he’s nice, but is he too nice to beat? And when Cannon realizes that Eliana’s final result looks really good, will the competition be too much to handle?
Breakfast — and a golden whisk — is on the table in this episode. Josie and Cannon must carefully and quickly execute the same blueberry pancake recipe multiple times while maintaining high quality. These young cooks must mix pancake batter and cook, flip and stack as many pancakes as they can in less than 10 minutes. Additionally, each pancake must have at least five blueberries and be cooked all the way through. The competitor with the highest number of pancakes that meet the judges’ standards wins a golden whisk.
Cannon is looking to redeem himself and win his first golden whisk while Josie wants to add another whisk to her apron, giving her a solid lead into the semifinals. Both contestants must get the most out of every minute in order to secure a win, but tension is high when Cannon reveals that his and Josie’s new friendship makes this challenge much more complicated.
What’s the perfect accompaniment to fish and seafood? Chef John Besh’s remoulade sauce! In this challenge, Nico and Cannon have 10 minutes to taste Chef John Besh’s remoulade and recreate it perfectly. There are 14 ingredients on the table, but contestants may only choose 8 in their recipe. Whoever uses the highest number of correct ingredients will take a golden whisk.
Cannon is confident in his ability to make sauces, but Nico shows no sign of wavering during this competition. Both young cooks create a complex sauce, and with a special twist at the end, this is one episode you won’t want to miss.
