Jasmine Stewart, the winner of “MasterChef Junior” season five, is a role model for young girls and the next generation of chefs. The 13-year-old is a rockstar in the MasterChef world, but Stewart is also showcasing her many talents outside of the kitchen.

Stewart auditioned for the show after being persuaded by her parents. After being eliminated from “MasterChef Junior,” she was welcomed back, claiming the winning title.


And while some may be intimidated by Gordon Ramsay, Stewart found the “Hell’s Kitchen” chef to be pleasant. Her optimistic attitude shines through in a wide-ranging interview with rolling out.

Stewart discusses how she got her start in cooking, her “MasterChef Junior” journey, Ramsay and future projects.
