Early Cooking Career

Logan started cooking at the age of two. At the age of 9, his recipe for the JIF most creative sandwich contest won him a trip to New York City and an appearance on The Today Show on NBC. "I went on TV a bunch with my recipe and it was really fun. I got so disappointed that I did not win the grand prize, so my Mom suggested that I enter another contest and I won (the Epicurious Healthy Challenge trip)."

On 16 December 2014, Logan won the MasterChef Junior competition.

Logan’s winning meal included an appetizer of saffron spot prawns with olive remoulade and smoked aioli, an entree of salt-crusted branzino which Gordon Ramsay remarked as "boldest, craziest" and a dessert of Meyer lemon madeleines with goat cheese mousse and a berry compote.
