YISD Student Wins The Food Network Chopped, Jr. Competition

UP NEXT: Dine Out This Week To Help AIDS Charity

12-year-old Taliah Dancil wowed the judges on Chopped, Jr., and won the Food Network competition last November. Taliah attends YISD’s Young Women’s Leadership Academy, and yesterday she was honored in front of the whole school for her win. In this video from YISD, Taliah says she is planning on using her $10,000 prize money to take her family on a trip to Australia. What a great adventure that will be!

El Paso native and Food Network celebrity chef Aarón Sánchez was in town to give Taliah her Chopped, Jr.’s chef’s coat to commemorate her win. He also invited Taliah and her family to New Orleans to check out his restaurant.
Taliah told the El Paso Times that she continues to cook for her family after her Food Network win, and that she feels like she had accomplished a lot.

Congratulations to Taliah on her win! You’re an amazing girl!
