Who knew Ann Arbor was such a hotspot for young, impressive cooks? Just a few months after 13-year-old Chris Ekpiken made the finals of “Rachael Ray’s Kids Cook Off” (November, 2015 Ann Arbor Family) another young local chef gets her time in the Food Network Spotlight. 11-year-old Jane Haviland, of Ann Arbor, is set to appear on season two of “Kids Baking Championship”. Hosts and mentors Duff Goldman and Valerie Bertinelli will lead ten kids, ages 10-13, on a series of baking contests with a chance at a $25,000 grand prize. The show will kick off with a “Pie a la Mode” contest, where the ten contestants must work to create the perfect pie and ice cream from scratch.
The show premieres Monday, January 4, at 8pm
