"Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off" (TV show) is a reality culinary competition series on Food Network featuring Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri who are back to battle it out for ultimate bragging rights, but this time mentoring the most talented kid chefs around.

Over four episodes eight children are divided into Team Rachael and Team Guy, as they compete against each other in a series of challenges, designed to test the kids' culinary know-how. In each episode, the teams participate in a pop quiz crafted to highlight their talents in the kitchen, followed by a classroom mentoring session with Rachael and Guy, and culminating in the creation of a menu plan for the Cook-Off. Guest judges, including Chef Richard Blais, Chef Duff Goldman, Jennie Garth ("Beverly Hills, 90210") and Marion Ross ("Happy Days"), will taste and grade the dishes and give each competitor a report card. The kid chef with the highest score on each team will be named MVP of that challenge and win a prize. In the end, the junior chef with the highest overall score will win their own web series on FoodNetwork.com.
