Poplarville Pastry Princess wins MasterChef

Hattiesburg (WDAM) -  Poplarville native, Whitney Miller, won Fox reality show MasterChef Wednesday night.  The 22 year old will be awarded a quarter of a million dollars and the opportunity to publish her own cookbook with the backing of world class Chef Gordan Ramsay.

The 22 year old won the nationally televised finals by making a fried corn cake with a black eye pea puree, fried chicken breast with collard greens, and a white chocolate souffle.  Miller held a viewing party at the Alumni House in Hattiesburg Wednesday night where hundreds of family and friends turned out to support her.

Miller and her family has known for months now that she was the winner of MasterChef, but remarkable they kept it a secret from extended family and friends.  "It's hard to keep a secret from people in Poplarville"  Miller said.

Miller currently has her own restaurant in Poplarville Mississippi called Glaze.
