“Master Chef Junior” contestant Emily started cooking when her babysitter would cook with her and show her all the gadgets they could use to cook.
Emily first learned to cook from her parents, but she would be excited to see her babysitter use different gadgets to make food.
“(The judges and mentors) helped me improve as a cook,” Emily said.
The judges would teach techniques and would encourage the contestants to gain as much knowledge as possible, but the contestants would gain experience from what they shared with each other.
The contestants would share techniques on how to cut ingredients and different ways to make different foods which was something Emily enjoyed.
“To know I was on (the show) made me feel special,” Emily said. “It’s so awesome to see so many people who love cooking as much as me.”
Emily’s passion for cooking was nurtured while being a part of “Master Chef Junior,” but also brought new interests to light.
Learning much more about cooking while on the show brought baking to Emily’s attention.
“I like cooking alot of savory food, but I’ve been leaning more towards baking now,” Emily said. “I feel like (baking) is a little more exciting because you can experiement more with the sweet flavors.”
Watch Emily on “Master Chef Junior” Fridays 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET/PT On FOX.
