Tarek Al Husseini, Kids Baking Championship- Season 7

Tarek Al Husseini, an 8th grader at Ladue Middle School, is taking the baking world by storm! And he’s starting with the Food Network. On August 5, 2019, the Food Network aired their 7th season of the popular baking show, Kids Baking Championship.

The show features weekly episodes, airing on Mondays at 8 p.m. CT, of which Valerie Bertinelli and Duff Goldman test the skills of nine talented young bakers, ranging in age from 10 to 13, in difficult dessert challenges to see who will measure up in the competition. Only one will take the cake and the sweet grand prize of $25,000, a feature in Food Network Magazine, and the title of Kids Baking Champion!

The Kids Baking Championship has aired three episodes since August 5 and Tarek is still in the competition and a strong competitor. Click here to learn more about Tarek and his fierce competitors and be sure to tune into the Food Network every Monday night at 8 p.m. to show Tarek that #LaduePride!
