Blue Hill Boy Advances in Food Network Challenge
Eleven-year-old Colby Lacasse appeared on the premiere episode of the Kids Baking Challenge on Monday night, January 4th.
Lacasse along with the other nine contestants had to make a pie from scratch. The contestants started off by playing a game of cornhole, where they had to get a bean bag in Chef Duff Goldman's mouth in a board.
Winners were able to select ingredients/tools from a table, and fresh blueberries were on the winner's table. Lacasse had his eyes on the blueberries as he wanted to make blueberry pie, but unfortunately didn't get his bean bag in Goldman's mouth.
Colby went to Plan B, and made chocolate chunk peanut butter pie with a candy topping.
