High School Students Face Off In Teen Battle Chef Comes To Harlem

20150519-AS-EmblemCookoff-0152Twelve New York 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 The Brooklyn Lab School, Edward A. Reynolds West Side High School and George Washington Education Campus competed in an eight-week culinary program and a series of mini cook-offs to decide the final two teams of six students each. Finalists will complete a designated recipe that reflects the healthy, delicious multi-ethnic meals and sophisticated culinary techniques they learned during the program.

The event is sponsored by EmblemHealth, The Links, Incorporated and HealthCorps. The event is open to the public and free to attend.
