Die Koch-Show wird von Haubenkoch Alexander Kumptner moderiert, der gemeinsam mit drei Kinder-Teams köstliche Gerichte zubereitet. Thema der Sendung ist stets ein bestimmtes Nahrungsmittel, wie zum Beispiel der Apfel, Nudeln oder Spinat. Alex präsentiert den drei Teams je ein Gericht, das die Kinder dann mit Gewürzen und weiteren Zutaten verfeinern dürfen. Dabei steht ihnen Alex mit Tipps und Tricks zur Seite. Anschließend dürfen die Teams ihre eigenen Gerichte vollenden, indem sie sie auf bunten Tellern anrichten, mit Blüten garnieren oder auf Spießen neu präsentieren. So entstehen zum Beispiel rosafarbene Kartoffel-Püree-Geister, Back-Hendl-Salat am Spieß oder lustige Haferbrot-Sandwiches. Der Fantasie der Kinder sind keine Grenzen gesetzt. Bei Schmatzo wird nichts weggeschmissen, deswegen zeigt Alex wie man aus Resten tolle und einfache Gerichte zaubern kann. Aus Eiklar wird ein fluffiges Omelett gebraten und aus Apfelschale ein gesunder Tee gekocht. Jede Sendung zeigt, wie vielfältig ein Nahrungsmittel sein kann und schafft auf verspielte Art einen verantwortungsbewussten Umgang mit Essen.
