About Claire

At the young age of 9, Claire impressed the judges and won the hearts of viewers with her personality and cooking creativity.  She seized the title of Youngest Chopped Champion and the coveted $10,000 prize with Chopped Champion Chef Coat.  While keeping this secret for months, until the air date in January 2016, Claire worked on culinary inventions, her mission and brand.  Claire’s innovations are fun, colorful and inspire fearless adventures in cooking as a real life science experiment!  In 2017, Claire was asked to return to Food Network to compete on the first Chopped Junior Champions tournament, which aired in June 2017. She started Claire’s Cooking Lab and her brand showcases her love of science, creativity, experimentation and whole foods.
