NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A 10-year-old New Orleans boy has won “Chopped Junior,” a cooking competition for young cooks.

Kaj Friis-Hecht won the $10,000 prize for the Food Network series patterned after the original “Chopped” for adults.

The Advocate (https://bit.ly/2jZ3UdD ) reports the judges were chefs Marcus Samuelsson and Daniel Churchill and actress Allison Williams.

Friis-Hecht’s entries included a chocolate molten lava cake with strawberry candy ice cream and fruit salad for dessert, an appetizer of deep-fried chorizo with broccoli and potatoes, and an entree of grilled pork tenderloin with sauteed red long beans and red wine pineapple sauce.

Friis-Hecht says he plans to use the money to help finance his future restaurant business - after he finishes middle school, junior high, high school and college.
