We have a winner! Congrats to Castor Morales on being chosen to judge the second-annual Junior Achievement World Uncorked! on January 21 at Broward College from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.

Morales' love for a variety of bread puddings made us hungry and secured his win. I'll be sure to order the one made with Krispy Kreme doughnuts the next time I see the Sugar Rush truck.

Morales told us he's a South Florida native who "enjoys all

of the diverse cuisine of our area. From pastelitos to pho to foie gras,

"if it

tastes good, it's on my plate," he says.

Morales joins a panel of judges that includes:
