On Thursday, Dec. 3, 10 kid chefs from across the country will compete in the fourth annual Red Robin Kids' Cook-Off in hopes of having their burger creation named the next grand-prize winner. As part of the competition, all 10 kids will make their burgers for a panel of judges, including Robin Miller, host of the Food Network's "Quick Fix Meals with Robin Miller."
