Beni Wins Season Six of MASTERCHEF JUNIOR
For the first time ever, the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR finale came down to three incredible young home cooks: Beni (10), Quani (11) and the youngest chef to ever make it to the finale, Avery (8)! Beni took the top prize with the following menu:
Cured Salmon with Corn Blini, Pickled Radishes and
Lemon-Herb Crème Fraiche
Grilled Veal Chop with Beet-Potato Fondant,
Red Cabbage, Sauerkraut and Mustard Cream Sauce
Deconstructed Apple Pie Tartlet with
Walnut Crumble, Apple-Brandy Cream and Cranberry Coulis
"When Gordon first said my name, I thought, 'No, he's making a mistake, did he just say BENI??!! I've won MASTERCHEF JUNIOR!!!! The BIGGEST cooking competition in the world!,'" said Season Six winner Beni Cwiakala. "I didn't think I would make it this far and I'm so shocked. I'm as happy as a mouse with a big hunk of cheese! I sometimes look in the mirror and say to myself, 'I won MASTERCHEF JUNIOR!' I want to give a HUGE thanks to my family and friends for helping me follow my dreams of cooking. I hope I've showed people to NEVER, in the whole wide world, ever give up, and never be afraid to give it your all. Even when I'm 80 years old, I'll never forget the moment I won MASTERCHEF JUNIOR. I'm excited to continue to express my love of cooking and show kids that anyone can love cooking, too!"
Beni was awarded a $100,000 Grand Prize and will be a part of the first-ever CAMP MASTERCHEF, beginning June 2018!
