Tuscaloosa’s celebrity chef is back for another cooking competition.  Fuller Goldsmith is one of 12 picked to compete on Top Chef Jr starting Friday on the Universal Kids.

Fuller was on Chopped Junior on the Food Network back in April and took home $10,000 prize.  He got hooked on cooking shows while he was undergoing chemotherapy at Children’s of Alabama hospital in Birmingham. He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2007, when he was 3.  He’s been in remission, followed by three more years of chemo, then spinal surgery and then a bone-marrow transplant.

Taping for Top Chef Jr began in May and follows much of the same format as Top Chef on the Bravonetwork.  ON the Junior version a dozen chefs aged 11-14 compete for a $50,000 prize

Fuller told the Tuscaloosa News that For “Top Chef Jr.,” it’s still a competitive process, but drawn out over a longer period.  “It makes a difference because the 12 kids, we all stayed at the same apartment,” Fuller said. “Pretty much every night we would go swimming down at the pool, so I got to know everybody. With ‘Chopped,’ I never got to know anybody.

Fuller joins Steve & Meg on the Steve Shannon Morning Show this Friday morning at 7:10.
