Little cooking virtuosos from SOS Children's Village wow Masterchef judges with their dishes

Judges of the highest rated cooking show in Croatia, Masterchef, paid a visit to SOS Children's Village Lekenik this Wednesday to learn more about the culinary secrets of our very own Little School of Cooking. Tomislav Gretić, Mate Janković and Radovan Marčić were impressed by the big secrets of our little chefs and happy to present them with the proceeds from the sandwich sale organized by the Masterchef contestants.

Mario Čović, the director of SOS Children's Village Lekenik, also took the judges on a tour of other SOS Children's Village workshops, during which they generously signed autographs for the youngest Masterchef viewers.
 

Little chefs from SOS Children's Village took great pride in preparing their specialties during the course of the workshop and the most famous Croatian culinary masters were duly impressed by their dishes. Under the guidance of their instructor Mirjana, children prepared several dishes for the Masterchef judges, and they even named each dish for the occasion. The Masterchef judging panel had the pleasure of tasting the Easter Nest, Sweet and Savory Bits, Springtime Crackers, Prosciutto Batons and even a cake named after SOS. The judges loved the varied menu and enjoyed both the tastes and the presentation. They rewarded the little chefs for their efforts with Masterchef aprons.
 

“The dishes were prepared with a lot of heart. Mate and I both agreed that in some aspects, these dishes were better than some we tried during the auditions for the show”, said Tomislav Gretić. Radovan Marčić loved not only the food, but also the environment in which these children live: “The food was great, but more importantly, none of us could fail to notice the positive climate, which is enormously important for the healthy development of the children who live here.”
 

“Children from the SOS Children's Village are loyal viewers of this popular cooking show, so they were more than thrilled when they heard about the judges visiting them and their cooking workshop. I would like to thank these fine chefs and NOVA TV for their visit and the money they raised”, said Mr. Mario Čović, director of SOS Children's Village Lekenik.
