On Chopped Junior, 12-year old Evelyn Dugan was able to spin past her competition to win the cooking show.

Dugan says she’s been able to translate her dancing techniques into cooking in the kitchen. She also credits travelling to other countries for helping her be creative with her culinary dishes.

Considering the ingredients given to her, Dugan got the opportunity to be very creative. In the appetizer round, she made meatballs out of pig ears, with a splash of ginger relish garnishing the top. The judges applauded her clean presentation as well as the delectability of the dish.

Dugan also made ostrich steaks with truffle sauce and Quinoa for her entrée, and finished off the competition in the dessert round with her Papaya Trifle with Monkey Bread Crumble and Queso Fresco Cream.
