Amari Koryang, aged 12, lives in Birmingham and has been an enthusiastic baker since she was 3 years old. Encouraged by her mother to enter Junior Bake Off (Love Productions for CBBC) she went on to win the competition, wowing the judges with her puff pastry pin wheels and her Welsh-inspired two-tier waterfall cake.

Intent on honing her skills and one day becoming a pastry chef she is also passionate about food waste and currently volunteers as a waitress at The Real Junk Food Project in Ladywood. This fantastic scheme collects ‘junk’ food (food that would otherwise be thrown away) and turns it into delicious meals that are served up at a pop-up café.

Working amongst a buzzy and enthusiastic team and picking up tips from some amazing chefs, Amari is now focused on taking her cooking to the next level.Aside from food she loves playing the guitar, athletics, presenting with a local news channel called TNT, and anything else that involves running and being loud.
