Louisiana resident wins ‘Chopped Junior’

Remember Mandeville 12-year-old Emily Roche, whose episode of “Chopped Junior” was scheduled to air last week?

She won, and with a Louisiana-inspired dessert.

Roche made a bread pudding good enough to top her New Jersey competitor, The Advocate reports.

So what’s she going to do with the $10,000 prize?

“Probably save it for my future,” Roche said, according to The Advocate. “Most sixth-graders probably wouldn’t, but that’s probably what I will do.”
