What a surprise I just got from my friend Daniel Waldman, he just posted to watch his daughter Amandine on the Food Network’s Chopped Junior, Tuesday, September 6th at 8pm ET/PT. Things started to make sense to me – I had mentored Amandine back in March on knife skills, taste and flavor just thinking she wanted to learn more about cooking, she loves to cook with her dad. But I digress.
Daniel just explained what he could, which is very limited until the show airs. He said Amandine; his perky, petite powerhouse of a nine year old wanted to compete on Chopped Junior, and what parent can deny their child an opportunity--- so they let her apply.
