Teen Chopped - Food Network

Teen Chopped – Food Network

Television’s most challenging cooking show is ready for a little child’s play. The Food Network’s hit series, Chopped is set to introduce an another all new kid edition and casting calls for aspiring young chefs are happening now. Teen Chopped will be hitting the airwaves soon and interested boys and girls can submit themselves today for their shot at showing their cooking skills to millions of viewers and walking away with fabulous prizes.

Teen Chopped will pit four culinary enthusiasts against each other in one of the most fun and creative cooking shows ever created. At the beginning of the show the chefs are given a basket full of four mystery ingredients that they must incorporate into their appetizer course. Most time the ingredients given would not ever be paired together which makes the task all the more challenging and exciting. After a twenty minute time limit the contestants must turn their dishes into the guest judges who judge each dish based on the criteria of taste, creativity and presentation, the judges then “chop” the worst dish and it’s chef. The three remaining contestants then move on to the thirty minute entree’ round where they are judged and one is eliminated once again. Finally two chefs remain standing for the desert round where the last contestant standing is named Chopped Champion. This cooking contest is a must for any young foodie and quite possibly the reality TV casting of the year.

Teens interested in showing their skills for some of the most accomplished chef judges in the world and for the millions and millions of viewers watching at home can submit themselves for consideration for upcoming episodes today by heading here choppedcasting.com/special.php to fill out their casting application. We will keep you updated on all Chopped news right here so stay tuned for more details and leave a message below and tell us how you got into cooking and why you should be chosen for the new episodes of Teen Chopped.

  3. Angelica Uy

    Howdy, my name is Angelica and I am 16 years old. Cooking has been one of my biggest hobbies. My love for cooking began with a single cracked egg on a pan. Who knew that denaturing proteins would be the spark that now drives me to not only expand my cooking skills, but motivates to be a better person? To study and gain knowledge, to learn responsibility, to treat others better. I believe you cannot better yourself unless you help others better themselves, and sharing your talents is one way of doing so. This opportunity will not only be my dream, but it will also be another color on the rainbow.

  14. Hannah Palpant

    Hi, my name is Hannah. I am 17 years old and I have a wild passion for baking and cooking in the kitchen. I’m always making something creative for my family and friends. I’ve had my own dessert business since 2014 and have baked for birthdays, church events and I will be doing a wedding this September. I find myself always talking about food and constantly dreaming up new recipes for different baked goods. Especially when my dad got sick this past year, I was in the kitchen constantly trying to take my mind off of the pain. When I’m stressed, anxious, happy, excited, whatever I may feel, the kitchen gives me comfort. I hope to earn money so that I can go to culinary school and then use those skills to go on to owning a restaurant someday. It gives me such joy to see people with huge grins on their faces when they take bites out of my food.

  15. Harmony

    I’m a 15 year old girl with a passion to cook all around the world and learn as many dishes as possible. Ever didn’t I was little I’ve loved cooking. My grandma and mom have been major culinary influences on me. Now being a Latina I grew up in a household of flavor. I’ve found a way to make the classic flavors of Mexico, Cuba, Spain, Puerto Rico, El Salvador, and many other spanish speaking countries, vegan. I am also really good at baking. I have noticed that Masataco is yet to have a dessert menu, I can be an extensive help to that! But that’s not the only extent to my culinary information, I also know how to cook food from all around the world such as France, Vietnam, India, Italy, China, and Israel.
    Though I myself am vegan I’m not afraid to use non vegan food items too, since I cook dinner and breakfast for my non vegan family quite often. I always make sure to use proper hygiene as well when I cook, especially considering the fact that it’s a necessity in my house, due to my mom recently having a bone marrow transplant and can’t get sick under any circumstances. If you are even considering me the slightest bit please contact me and we can discuss anything you like. Thank you so much!

  16. philip pasqua

    Hi I am a 14 year old boy who loves cooking. I’ve been interest in cooking since I was 4 and started cooking at 5. I grew up watching my mother and grand mother cook,and I was all ways there watching them cook up a storm. Ever since I was 10 I’ve cooked dinner every night. It became a love that I could not live without. I’m now 14 and this year I cooked Thanksgiving diner and Christmas dinner. My family was convinced that we had it all catered, that is how good it was. Cooking is my passion and that is why I think having me on chopped teen would help kick start my cooking career and extend my love for the art of cooking even more .

  27. Jayvon Patrick

    Hi my name is Jayvon Patrick and I am 15 years old turning 16 this July. As long as I can remember I loved food. In fact before I was born my grandmother had a number of restaurants in the Macon Ga area. I was born when my mom was 15 and didn’t know my father at the time. Food started to come into my life when every Saturday my family would go to the Twiggs county race track and run the culinary stand. A year or two ago I found out who my father was and realized that he also loved food and worked as a chef in a Hotel in Mercer University.My sophomore year I enrolled into a culinary arts program at Hutchings college and career academy. I have obtained my servsafe certificate and wish to go to either the Art Institute or Helms Culinary College. I would really love to be on the show and to show the world that you can come from the hardest points in life and still bounce back on them positively.

  61. Gabe Smith

    Hiya there guys. My name’s Gabe Smith, I’m 16 years old, and for as long as I can remember food/cooking has been my passion. Some of my earliest memories are of my grandmother showing me how to cook, whether it was showing me how bake cookies or fry potatoes on the stove.

    I remember the moment I first fell in love with cooking. I was about 6, and on one summer vacation, my grandmother woke me up early to make breakfast for my grandfather. I thought maybe like eggs and bacon or waffles, but to my surprise she told me we were gonna make a cheese souffle, something that I didn’t know what it was.

    She showed me how to separate the eggs, let me watch as she made the sauce (a béchamel, I know know)on the stove and let me stir in the yolks into the sauce. The coolest part was watching her whip the whites and then fold that into the batter, and the outcome was something that I hadn’t expected.

    It was fluffy and light and salty and just like eating a cheesy cloud and from that first bite, I knew that I wanted to be part of the magic that had changed those eggs into something so delicious.

    Now, every chance I get I’m in the kitched trying to cook something up, but as it is I don’t get too many chances to do so what with homework and Dual-Credit courses. On top of school work, my kitchen at home isn’t very conducive to stimulating said passion, but I try to cook with every chance I can get.

    If I win, which by itself would be the first dream in a long line of them to come true, I would mostly be vindicated in my choice of working with food. As a kid with the knowledge that there is SO much I could do in the world, winning ANY kind of cooking competition would help me immensely, because it would set my career choice in stone. I’ve bounced around from career idea to career idea, but I realize that the world of food has always been my obvious choice.

    What finally made me realize that I wanted to be a chef, kind of cementing the decision, was an instance where I made puff pastry from scratch… by hand. 😐

    I floured up the counter and dumped the two cups of flour in a mound, adding the cold water a bit at a time, painstakingly slowly folding it into the flour with hands that just kept getting stickier. The hours I spent just doing that made me realize that food was the only thing I would actually dedicate such an amount of time to, spending so long at the counter just putting together this extremely versatile ingredient, rolling it out and folding it and rolling and folding. I was having a great time.

    So yeah, I love cooking. I mean you have to be super dedicated if you’re going to spend hours making something as simple as dough from SCRATCH without a mixer, which I now feel stupid for.

    I’ve seen the previous teenage competitions, and I regret that I don’t have as nice and stimulating of an environment as the competitors on the show, but I hope that I could be considered for competing.

  62. Sarah Ingersoll

    Hi, my name is Sarah Ingersoll. I am 16 and a junior in high school. Currently I also do a vocational culinary school as well. I have been cooking since I was 7 and it’s just been a passion of mine for so long. I am a line cook as a local restaurant and I wish to pursue my dream in the restaurant industry for the rest of my life. I took cooking classes when I was younger, including some in France. And it is something that I’m super serious about and I think chopped would be a cool way to express my abilities through food.

  64. Hannah Greer-Lennon

    Hi! My name is Hannah Greer-Lennon. I am 16 years old, and I live in a small little town, known as Lancaster, SC. I am very interested in applying for Teen Chopped USA. I have been cooking for about four (4) years now. At first my original intentions were to become a vet, then my mom had back surgery and was unable to cook. She had already begun to teach me a few techniques and dishes, and once I started, I realized that I had an unbelievable passion for food! I cook to make others and myself happy. Seeing people enjoy something that I have created makes me so joyful. Cooking is not just a hobby to me, it is a passion and emotion. I have really exceeded at baking, frying, pan searing, grilling, and more. Me and my family watch Chopped almost every night, and I have learned so much from the show. I’ve learned terms like julienne, chiffonade, and to brunoise. I have learned things such as sous vide, creme anglaise, etc. When I’m not cooking I enjoy traveling, photography, horse back riding, and volleyball. I hope to further explore culinary, and achieve my dream of owning my own restaurant or food truck. I would like to attend a culinary college such as the Culinary Institute of America or Le Cordon Bleu. I hope to hear back from you soon, if not thank you anyway!

  65. Jeremy Gart

    Hi! My name is Jeremy Gart and I am 15 years old. I would love to have the opportunity to go on Teen Chopped. I’ve had a passion for cooking as long as I can remember, and have been pesketarian for the past 6 years (I eat seafood, but no meat or chicken). This has really opened my eyes to cooking, and I have since fallen in love with the culinary world! I love making unique, flavorful, contrasting meals (i.e. creamy and crispy together on the same plate). I never create heavy or thick dishes; most of my meals are light, zingy, and fun. I love to eat almost as much as I love to cook, but also I think that I have the energy, enthusiasm, and fun attitude necessary to compete in (and dare I say, win…? ) a Teen chopped episode. I have also gotten really good at being able to think on my feet and work with what I have, due to being a student with limited resources and no car. Because of this, I think I would be perfect for an episode of Teen Chopped!

  66. Allaya Livingston

    Hi my name is Allaya Livingston and I’m 13! I am very interested in applying for Teen Chopped USA. I’ve had the passion for cooking for 4 years! I began cooking and helping my mom cook for my three younger sisters, my brother, and dad! Now, I’ve taken over dinner duties and cook healthy dinners close to every night! Since I was a little girl I have always dreamed of being on one of your shows. Many people think healthy eating is bland, flavorless, or even nasty! My strong suit and the thing that makes me different is, I know how to cook healthy food very well and I know what ingredients go great together! I practice my healthy cooking all the time because I’m a athlete and as a athlete you have to eat healthy to perform! Let me compete on Teen Chopped USA so that I can prove to everyone that healthy eating can be full of delicious flavors!

  71. Sydney Tellier

    Hi there, my name is Sydney Tellier. I’m 16 years old and I’m from New Hampshire. I got into cooking originally when my mom worked all day and night and I had to cook my own meals since it’s just me and my mom. I began mixing and matching what I felt tasted right, I’ve cooked for friends and family since I was twelve years old. I helped to make my sister’s 4 tier wedding cake when I was 13, which earned me a deep appreciation for baking. I began watching just about every cooking show to know what others think about the foods they eat and how they mix. I learned what to do and what not to do in the kitchen in doing so. (The same way I learned how to drive!) I’ve made some mistakes in the kitchen and I’m not going to lie about it. I’m not perfect and I make mistakes, but I believe that if I get a chance in Chopped I may be able to prove that not all mistakes are a bad thing.

  73. Sydney Mascal

    Hello, my name is Sydney Mascal. I live just outside of Richmond, Virginia. I am 14 years old and have a passion for cooking. I plan to go to UMass Amherst to study chemistry, and as I have learned, cooking and baking are a lot like chemistry. My aspiration for the future is to be a chemist for a pharmaceutical company so I can help as many people as I can with the medications I could create. Being on this show would mean so much to mean to show people that even when you are underestimated, you can do pretty much anything, in spite of when all the odds are against you. I am a consistent A student with occasional B’s due to being in math two years ahead of most people my age. I am in band as well and I play the flute. This would be an amazing opportunity and achievement that which I can add to my repertoire.

  75. Elisabeth Hall

    Hey there, my name is Elisabeth Hall. I live in a small town in Florida. I am 16 years old. I love baking and pastry arts. I plan to go to college at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. Baking to me is not just a hobby it is one of the most important essentials in the culinary world it also is what defines my career and goals. Being on Chopped would give me one of the most important opportunities in a lifetime: to show people in my hometown that just because you live in a small town doesn’t mean you can’t be extraordinary, it would also give me more of an opportunity to advance my education rapidly in baking and pastry arts.
