Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri are back together again to battle it out, but this time it’s not with celebrities — it’s with kids. Last Sunday, for the first time, they started mentoring eight of the most talented kid chefs in the new series Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off (Sundays at 8pm/7c).

"No one gets eliminated in this series. This competition is about educating, mentoring, encouraging and empowering the kids," Guy recently said in an interview. "You'll sit there, watch them and just be amazed. Whether you have kids or not, you'll watch this show and ask yourself, 'Why wasn't this done 10 years ago?' That's the kind of show it is. That's the kind of energy it brings."

So can these mini chefs really cook? "Let's get to the point on this: Kids can cook, and kids have a lot more awareness to food than we think they do," Guy shares. "They program their cell phones better than we do, they play video games better than we do — they're incredibly smart. I think they're learning more now in school than when we were kids. So when we give them just a little taste of how we do it in the food industry, watch them spread their wings. It's unbelievable."

Watch an all-new episode of Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off this Sunday at 8pm/7c.
