Is your child a culinary prodigy who has what it takes to be the next Master Chef?

If so, pack up your junior chef and get to New Orleans on June 25 for an open casting call for contestants on the new season of FOX's Master Chef Junior with Gordon Ramsay.

The show wants home cooks ages 8 to 13 to pre-register online for the audition, located at The Ritz-Carlton hotel, 921 Canal Street in New Orleans.

Jessie Luczynski, associate casting producer for Master Chef Junior, said kids do not need to bring a dish or food to prepare for auditions, but they should wear an apron and be prepared to show off their culinary skills.

Master Chef Junior will supply a fully-functional kitchen for any food tasks assigned to the potential contestants.

Auditions are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and a parent must be present and sign a release form for their child to participate.
