Food Network star bringing Chopped-style contest to Glencliff High School

Maneet Chauhan Food Network addicts take note: “Chopped” judge, chef and culinary celebrity Maneet Chauhan is bringing the challenge of her TV show to Glencliff High School, and you can come watch.

Three Glencliff students will participate in their own “Chopped”-style contest next Tuesday, with just 40 minutes to make an entrée from scratch. Meals will be judged by Maneet and Nashville’s own Chef Bob Waggoner.

The student-chefs are:

  • LaSydnia Palmer - Senior
  • Shayla Sullivan - Junior
  • Johnathan Quiteno - Junior
  • Alyce Scrivner - Instructor

They are all part of the ProStart Program, a two-year culinary program from the National Restaurant Association and the Tennessee Hospitality Education Foundation. Glencliff’s culinary team won second place in the dessert category at the Tennessee ProStart Championship just last month. Let’s hope they can add a national honor like Top Teen Chef to their list of accomplishments!

The event is part of a larger national contest called “America’s Top Teen Chef.” Maneet is hosting local competitions in cities all along her book tour.
