The Utah Restaurant Association Proudly Presents
Emmy Award Winning TeenChef Pro
SEASON THREE
On Utah's CW30
Saturdays 11:00 AM
or to view online www.ora.tv/teenchefmasters

Join 12 Utah Teen Chefs as they compete for the opportunity of a lifetime: a four-year scholarship to Johnson & Wales University and the dream of becoming a professional chef. Hand-selected to compete on the teams of three of Utah's hottest Chefs:

  • Blue Team — MentorChef Jodie Rogers, Deer Valley Resort
  • Red Team — MentorChef Justin Shifflett, Stoneground Kitchen
  • Green Team — MentorChef Tyler Stokes, Provisions SLC

Join host Michael Mchenry, President of Even Stevens Sandwiches along with some of Utah's best culinarians as guest judges guide our TeenChefs as they are introduced skills and techniques each week for the teens to learn. They only have two burners and 60 minutes to create a dish for the MentorChefs who blindly taste the dishes as the Mentor Judges and choose the winning dish. The team with the winning dish gets to decide which two teens will duel against one another in a culinary cook-off. The two dueling teens only have 15 minutes to prepare an amuse bouche to see who will go home and who will stay to cook another day.

Both MentorChefs whose teen does not lose in the duel may SAVE the teen going home by choosing a teen from their team to go home instead to craft their perfect team. ProStart is the Utah Restaurant Association's school-to-career curriculum providing juniors and seniors in high school with critical skills they will need to enter the restaurant industry at a competitive and experienced level.
