Tonight in Food TV: MasterChef Juniors Get to ‘Skype-A-Mentor’ for Advice

After being presented with a fairly straightforward mystery box containing shrimp and various Asian seasonings, tonight’s crop of MasterChef Junior contestants receive the added bonus of Skyping a culinary mentor for advice on how to pair shrimp with soy.

Check out a sneak peek of tonight’s episode below, and feel free to weep quietly over how much better these tweens can chiffonade basil than you.
