Presenting the coatYep, it’s true, Mason won Chopped Junior on Food Network!

You all know Mason, he’s the kid that raised $26,052 to put a culinary sciences lab in at his elementary school and along that journey, he got the school district to update the school kitchen and hire a lunch lady who cooks hot, real food lunches. They also put in a school garden as part of his efforts.

He’s also the kid who does live cooking demos at fairs, festivals, home shows, private events, and on television. Now add to his CV, at only 12 years old, Chopped Junior Champion

He won $10,000 (more than half went into a trust for later) that he spent on a few special toys, some new clothes, and he started his own business, Mason Made Products, it’s a line of marinades and sauces coming to MasonPartak.com very soon.

We can’t wait to see what 2016 will bring for this bright young man, but we’ll be sure to share his journey with you. You can also follow along on Facebook at Mason Made.

Congratulations Mason, your dad and I are incredibly proud of you! We will be sure to post a photo of Mason in his coveted Chopped Junior Champion chef coat when it comes.

Chopped Jr UghOver the summer I got to go to New York and compete on the new Food Network series Chopped Junior. I couldn’t believe it when my mom told me they selected me to compete, I was so excited! A little bit scared, but more excited.
