#FOODTVCHAT: With Jasmine Stewart and Gina Gonzalez Scallon

  • We asked Jasmine why she wanted to participate in the Master Chef Junior Competition.

  • People frequently say that the best food is made from love. We asked Jasmine what that meant to her.

  • Jasmine told Chef Gordon Ramsay that she “deserved to win”. We wondered what gave her the self confidence to give that answer!


  • We wondered what the kids that audition and win a spot on the show have in common with each other.


  • Jasmine uses an interesting hashtag on social media, #letyourinnergirlslay. We asked her to explain what it meant.

This was such a fun #FoodTVChat! Thank you to all who participated in the chat.

A special thank you to Jasmine for being such an awesome Guest Chef. We wish you all the best and know with your talents,  positive outlook and determination that you will have great success in whatever you set your mind that you want to do!

Thanks to Master Chef Junior Casting Director Gina Gonzalez Scallon for being such a great #FoodTVChat guest and many thanks to the entire Master Chef Junior Team–we throughly enjoyed working with you!

    • Thanks for your kind words Linda. Yes, great way of putting it… Jasmine sure does have a ‘firey spirit’ and is an inspiration to many even at this young age. Looking forward to seeing you at the next #FoodTVChat.
