Jasmine Stewart won the 5th season of Master Chef Junior on Thursday.  This precocious 12 year old who is from Milton, Georgia credits her Jamaican roots for her success.   A number of her dishes were Jamaican inspired.  She prepared a jerked lobster tail.  On an episode she prepared a pineapple upside down cake using rum. Guest judge, the renown Martha Stewart was so impressed that she wanted the recipe. The other guest judge Wolfgang Puck who caters to big celebrity events like after Oscar award parties devoured his portion of Jasmine’s cake.  The host of the show Gordon Ramsay owns 5 star restaurants around the world said he would serve the dessert in his places of business.  Jasmine at her early age is clearly a major league world class culinary talent.  Her future is very bright.
