Harlem Students Face Off in Teen Battle Chef Competition
Twelve Harlem students who have mastered an eight-week culinary program will put their cooking skills to the test when they face off in Teen Battle Chef Live.
Teen Battle Chef Live is the culmination of an intensive program aimed at preventing obesity and diabetes. Students from Democracy Prep, a Harlem charter school, and The Harlem Dream Center, an afterschool program, will show off the techniques they learned that are needed to prepare delicious and nutritious food through healthy cooking. Two teams of students will complete a designated recipe that reflects the healthy, multi-ethnic meals and sophisticated culinary techniques they learned during the program.
New York City First Lady Chirlane McCray will deliver opening remarks, with Chef Alexander Smalls, Food Network personality Ellie Krieger and Izabela Wojcik, Director of House Programming of the James Beard Foundation serving as judges.
