On tonight’s Teen Tournament finale, the four winners from the preliminary rounds battled one more time in the Chopped kitchen. This final fight for the finish would determine the winner of the $25,000 prize and the coveted title, which is pretty good for a teen still in high school. The young chefs once again faced challenging baskets along with the building pressure of a ticking timer and the judges’ critiques. Creativity, presentation and flavor would determine the results as the best young chef rose to the top with three courses worth the win.

On a special episode of Chopped, four teenaged chefs entered the competition to prove that age doesn’t matter when it comes to culinary talent. On the line was a $40,000 scholarship to The International Culinary Schools at The Art Institutes. Not to mention bragging rights to call oneself a Chopped Champion. Now that’s pretty cool for a kid still in school! The competitors ranged in age from 13 to 16, but it didn’t matter that they lacked the years of experience, because they made up for it in energy, ambition and a determination to win. FN Dish has the exclusive interview with the winning teen-chef.
