Olive Garden and MasterChef Junior - A Partnership You Can Taste

Olive Garden and MasterChef Junior – A Partnership You Can Taste

Olive Garden - Executive Chef Jim Nuetzi + MasterChef Junior Logan Olive Garden and MasterChef JuniorOlive Garden is a favorite dining destination in my family. My husband seems to be addicted to the bread sticks and Alfredo sauce, while my kiddos seem to love everything. I really enjoy the eggplant Parmesan as well as the fact that the kid’s meals are large enough to satisfy my growing 12 year old. My family also loves cooking shows, so we were excited to hear that Olive Garden is partnering with MasterChef Junior to bring the flavors of the show into the restaurant. Through December 14, Olive Garden guests can vote for their favorite of two new appetizers developed by the Olive Garden chef team in collaboration with MasterChef Junior season 2 winner Logan. To vote, come into your nearest Olive Garden location and order your favorite! To find your nearest location, visit OliveGarden.com.

Visit Olive Garden and choose your favorite show-inspired appetizer that will stay on the menu for up to 12 months. The two tasty appetizers are:

  • New! Breadstick Pepperoni Pizza-Breadstick crust topped with smoked mozzarella cheese, giant pepperoni and marinara. Baked fresh in Olive Garden’s pizza oven.
  • New! Italian Cheese Stuffed Meatballs-Meatballs stuffed with mozzarella, provolone and parmesan cheeses in marinara sauce. Served with warm, crisp breadstick crostini.

Olive Garden and MasterChef JuniorThe winning appetizer will be announced during a MasterChef Junior episode airing December 18 and will remain on the menu across the country.

    I really like this. Children can have so much fun in the kitchen and it helps them wasn’t too eat and try new foods. Great post
