UPDATE JUNE 21, 2017: Isabella Wylie, a 15-year-old from Tramonto, won her June 6 competition on the Food Network’s “Chopped Junior.” She’ll be in the finale, which airs June 27.
Wylie and three other two-time winners compete for a third win, the title and $25,000.
They’ll be cooking first from a basket of ingredients that includes a rather wild jerky and a protein that most Americans have never eaten, the network notes. The second basket has cream puffs and a strange ketchup. The final round will involve some kid-friendly bubbly.
