Chopped - Teen Chefs Episode

I saw this the other day, and am blown away by the talent these kids have in the kitchen. Their level of sophistication, palate, presentation, and the cookery itself - wow. One contestant was 13 years old! I think they all said they're going to go into the food business: good for them!!

    I was floored too (it seemed the judges were also). They were consistently MUCH better than the usual contestants and god knows, had more class.

      Just caught this show tonight. Awesome job by those kids. All of them have great common sense and great taste. They will go far.

        Judges were trying too hard to be nice.

          I concur with you. And I think they went with the emotional story. See the rerun and decide for your self.

            Nonsense. You have no idea what the food tasted like and neither do I.

          The 13 year old said she spent a good part of the past year to study at the Cordon Bleu. Must come from some money to finance that! I think what she can do is great but it does help to have rich parents.
