Che (season 7 winner)
Che Theo Spiotta was born in Manhattan on March 30, 2006 to Elizabethanne and Jason Spiotta Growing up in Long Island Che’s love and passion for culinary began at the age of 3 and a half when he used to watch his father cook authentic Italian meals and classic Italian dishes at his Brooklyn home. Since the age of 4, Che has been watching shows on The Food Network, studying cookbooks, practicing savory as well as baking pastry/baking desserts recipes, experimenting by putting his own unique, gluten-free twists, sharpening his knife skills since the age of 5.
In July 2012, Che was diagnosedwith a gluten allergy at the age of 6. On August 20, 2015, his father Jason tragically passed away. Che was heartbroken, saddened and grief-stricken to the core but also driven to keep his legacy & dream alive, knowing he had big shoes to fill on the roadahead.
Malia (season 7 finalist)
I’m just a girl who dreams and believes. I was a fan of MasterChef Junior for years. I watched every episode. At the end of each episode when the announcer reminded the viewers about casting, I would ask my mom to audition. My mom would caution me and say, what are the odds? I didn’t care about odds, I just wanted to go for it! So, we did! The Masterchef Junior experience did not disappoint.
The once in a lifetime experiences, the culinary adventures and the MasterChef Junior friendships continue! I’m so grateful to be a part of the MasterChef Junior family. When I’m not in the kitchen, you can find me working on my other passion in the dance studio.
I love all forms of dance and I don’t mind putting in long hours. When I do something I love, it doesn’t feel like work. In my spare time, I like to indulge in extreme sports like motocross, wake boarding and waterskiing. My family and I enjoy simple moments of camping with family and friends – campfires, adventures and card games all night.
Favorite Dish: Like most kids my age, I love pizza. Homemade, create your own toppings is the best. I really love making any dishes that involve homemade pasta. Making and rolling out my own dough relaxes me, and I find making pasta so satisfying. Who doesn’t love homemade pasta and sauce!
Avery (season 6)
Avery Meadows is your typical 12-year-old Texas girl, with a twist. At only 8, she was the finalist on Season 6 of MasterChef Junior. If you ask her, the highlight of her life, so far. She made lifelong friendships, memories and experiences that most kids can only dream of. Even after the show she has continued her love of cooking and baking and enjoys learning the Texas art of grilling with her “Poppie” on the weekends. She has become quite the French macron enthusiast and had mastered the art of the difficult pastry. When she is not in the kitchen, you can find her on the volleyball courts with her team, or helping her dad build and fix things around the house. She loves the outdoors and all the activities that go with it in Texas. This year she will be inducted into our local chapter of the National Charity League where she looks forward to serving our community and local schools in need.
Favorite Dish: Chocolate Tres Leches with cinnamon whipped cream
Matthew (season 7)
Matthew Smith is a 10-year-old 4th grader from Livingston, NJ. He was a Top 8 finalist in MasterChef Junior Season 7 when he was 8 years old and in the 2nd grade. Besides cooking, Matthew enjoys swimming, dance, piano, gymnastics and singing. He is Vice President of his school’s student council and his motto is ‘dream it, do it.’
Matthew was part of the MasterChef Jr. Live! debut in the Fall of 2019, was a guest on MasterChef Jr. Camp and was recently on the Rachael Ray Show where he prepared one of his favorite side dishes, Warm Tomato Salsa with Rainbow Chard Stems. When Matthew is older, he hopes to own a farm to table restaurant to influence people to eat local, fresh and healthy food.
Favorite Dish: Filet Mignon with Tzatziki and a Greek Salad
