On the Chopped Junior episode “Trail Mix and Match,” the junior chefs get a chance to experiment with an Indian tea snack and a lean meat, and chocolate and vanilla are used together for a special desert. The judges include 23-year-old actress Debby Ryan and chefs Marc Murphy and Geoffrey Zakarian.
Debby Ryan is known for her roles on Sing It! (Holli), The Mysteries of Laura (Debra Messing’s sister Lucy Diamond), Disney Channel’s Jessie (NYC nanny Jessie Prescott), and The Suite Life on Deck (Bailey Pickett), among others. Chopped Junior airs Tuesdays at 8pm on The Food Network.
