The world of cooking is mourning Fuller Goldsmith, winner of the Food Network’s “Chopped Junior” and “Top Chef Junior” before his 18th birthday.
Production company Magical Elves announced Wednesday that Alabama aborigines have died of cancer at the age of 17.
The company wrote on Instagram, “We are devastated to hear of the loss of our ‘Top Chef Jr.’ alum, Fuller Goldsmith.” He was an incredible chef and the strongest kid we’ve ever met. From the moment he was introduced to us we knew that he would influence everyone around him and become a positive force in the world of cooking. To his family, we give all our love because they mourn the loss of a truly special someone. “
“Top Chef Jr.” host Vanessa Lache commented in a production company post, “We all loved Fuller so much! You Fuller!”

The post continues: “We will miss his presence, his smile, his smile, his jokes behind Brett’s back, and his jokes like fighting the pain and suffering of a terrible disease. He will be missed but will be remembered forever. His spirit will remain.” Stay at SAH for the rest of the time. Thank you so much for sharing our love and sympathy for his family with all of us. He has made us all better people. “
Goldsmith was a student at the Tuscaloosa Academy and fought leukemia on four separate occasions from the age of four.
In February, Goldsmith revealed on social media that he was going through radiation for the fifth time. “Unfortunately the tumor news was not what I expected. The same leukemia has returned. There are plans to start proton radiation in UAB as soon as possible … hopefully in the next two weeks. I will have 12 days of radiation and then more chemo sure To do that it’s gone once and for all. 5 rounds- I’m ready to fight, ”he wrote at the time.

At age 14, Goldsmith appeared on “Cut Junior.” She won the competition and eventually donated her 10,000 cash prize to the Department of Hematology and Pediatric Oncology at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
In 2018, celebrity chef and Goldsmith’s personal protagonist Guy Fiery surprised him at the Stagecoach Music Festival. According to Entertainment Weekly, Fiari gave the young cook some encouraging words after he left “Top Chef Jr.” because of his health.
“What you’ve already achieved in your life is amazing,” Fiery said. “You don’t give up … you have to believe, you have to believe, you have to go, you have to fight hard and it’s not easy.”
