Posted by Jamie Calvario on Sep 22, 2014 9:00:00 AM

Meet Juan Davila from La Coruna, Spain. Before spending three weeks at our summer program, Juan competed in Master Chef Junior in Spain. Master Chef Jr. is a cooking competition show that is very similar to the show in America, Iron Chef. The competition lasted one and a half months. The competition consisted of group work, individual work and a creative challenge. The highlight of his competition was a breakfast dish. This dish involved eggs, ham and bacon with a side of fruit with whip cream. After the month and a half, Juan finished in 3rd place overall. What would bring a high school student who has accomplished a lot to JKCP?
