The Food Network threw everything from orange push-ups to a vegetable sushi roll at 14-year-old Linden resident Elisabeth Watkins, but she kept her cool and came out a winner on a recent episode of "Chopped Junior."

Elisabeth went to New York with her parent in August to shoot the show, and though she knew she had won, the only people she was allowed to tell were her parents and her older brother, Kenneth Watkins IV. In the "Chopped" programs, contestants must cook an appetizer, an entre and a dessert, but the judges try to stump them with four mystery ingredients for each course.
