It goes without saying that making the top six on MasterChef Junior is a huge achievement, and one that obviously merits a great deal of celebration. Evan Robinson made it incredibly far in his pursuit of that end — he succeeded in several challenges along the way, but in the end a pop-up restaurant task spelled his doom this past week.
So how is he thinking about his time in the competition after the fact? In a new exit interview today, Evan discusses his achievements, what he enjoyed doing in the kitchen, and what he would’ve liked to do if given an opportunity.
CarterMatt – How did you feel about making it so far in the competition?
Evan Robinson – Of course, you always wish you could go farther to showcase your talent and skill in the kitchen, but I thought it was great. I had a lot of fun.
Was there any type of food you wish you could’ve made in the kitchen?
I am really a master with Pork Belly. I would have liked to cook with that. It is so versatile.
What was the most difficult part of doing the team challenge from last night?
I think the challenge was really hard for everyone. Each person on both teams could have improved. Given that, I would have loved to have shown my individual talent prior to being eliminated.
What is the one part of the season that you enjoyed the most?
I liked throwing pies at the judges when I won the challenge.
Now that you’ve done the show, what are some of your culinary dreams going to be from here?
I am working on improving my cooking skills. Also, I enjoy writing and photography. I hope to be either a food critic or food photographer.
Do you have a favorite Gordon Ramsay moment from being in the kitchen with him?
Gordon is a very skilled chef. I enjoy watching his food demonstrations.
