Chef Hunter Zampa who competed on Rachael vs. Guy discusses the finer points of his killer venison chili

Update:  how did Hunter Zampa do?  Find out here! 

Hunter Zampa might only be 13, but this Stamford resident has fit a lot of cooking into those years.  He recently created an excellent venison chili for the Stamford Chili Cook-off and also competed in another contest.  This one, though, was a bit bigger:  Rachael vs. Guy:  Kids Cook-off.  Hunter performed very well, cooking his way to the top three of the finale.  

Well, you can’t keep a good chef down!  He’ll be back for more, competing this time on Chopped:  Teen Talent edition.  His episode airs on 12/10 at 10 pm and will pit Hunter against three other youngsters hungry for the $40,000 scholarship.

For the first round, contestants open up the mystery basket to find a sweet drink and a juicy fruit.  For the next round, the teenage chefs open their baskets to find some of the fanciest ingredients that are used in kitchens.  And, for the ultimate challenge, the final two chefs need to make dessert from ingredients that you’d use for breakfast.

Make sure to tune in on 12/10 and cheer Hunter on!  You can also get more of your Zampa fix by checking out his site, his blog where he pens his thoughts and recipes, and follow him on Twitter and Facebook.

Lots of luck Hunter Zampa!  We’re all rooting for you!

    I have a young son of similar age and just loved Hunter’s enthusiasm, early direction of goals in life, and cooking abilities. The judges made the right choice. I’m so happy for him.
