Southern California Teen Wins Culinary Award
REBECCA ROBERTS, host:
It's iron chef junior varsity. The Best Teen Chef 2007 was announced this weekend.
She's Amanda Nunez, a San Diego high-school senior and part-time pastry chef. Nunez wins a full tuition scholarship to The Art Institute of California-San Diego. Twenty-three contestants prepared the same menu of tortilla soup, starburst grapefruit salad, pork medallions and a roast a la Mexicana. But Nunez says she prefers Italian food.
