Teen Chopped Returns to RPL Nov. 9

Teen Chopped
A teen chef begins to cut an onion during the 2016 Teen Chopped event at Rodman Public Library. The 2021 competition will be held Tuesday, Nov. 9.

Rodman Public Library has just the thing for teens with some culinary chops who want to show off their skills.

The popular Teen Chopped makes its return to the RPL Main Auditorium from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 9.

Teen chefs will be divided into teams of three members, and just like in the television show “Chopped,” they will create three courses -- appetizer, main course, and dessert – from ingredient baskets. Teens will also have the full use of the Rodman Chopped Pantry filled with spices and other essentials to complete their dish. A panel of three persons will then judge the round.

 The event, which is supported by Friends of Rodman Public Library, is limited to 18 participants, so registration is required. Teens may sign up individually or in groups up to three persons. To register, stop by the Reference Desk at the Main Library or call 330-821-2665, ext. 217.
