Dec. 4, 2015: Two Edible Education students are competing on the Food Network’s “Chopped Junior”

Screen Shot 2015-12-05 at 8.16.55 AMDecember 4, 2015, Richmond, VA — Edible Education founder Ann Butler got word today that two of her cooking school students — Claire Hollingsworth (pictured right), and Emily Waters — are competing on the Food Network’s national cooking show Chopped Junior. 

Premiering Tuesday, January 5 at 8pm, their episode is entitled “Cuteness Overload.” 

Chopped Junior explains: The young and the fearless!  The junior chefs in this competition are just nine and ten years old, the youngest group yet.  The first round has them cooking with a classic kids’ food and some unusual chips.  Then in the entrée round, a super sour basket ingredient makes for an equally sour face from a young cook trying it for the first time.  And will a “punny” ingredient in the dessert basket make the finalists crabby or happy?

And stay tuned for details about the Red Carpet Party we’ll be hosting on Jan. 5 in Richmond. All Edible Education families and friends are invited so we can watch the show together! Be sure to sign up for our newsletter so we can put you on the guest list!
