Heard up North: Young chefs have fun cooking, competing

Listen to this story
More than two-dozen teams of young cooks from Franklin, Jefferson and St. Lawrence Counties gathered to show off their culinary skills in Canton on Saturday. Middle and high school teams with names like, The Bacon Boys of Brasher Falls, Peru Blue and the Massena Treble Chefs, competed for top kitchen honors at the North Country Junior Iron Chef competition at St. Lawrence University. The event was organized by St. Lawrence Health Initiative. The dishes were judged based on taste, creativity, presentation and whether their peers would eat them in the school cafeteria.

For today's Heard Up North, Todd Moe caught up with the Hermon-DeKalb Dominators -- 6th and 7th graders Garrett, Miranda and Cassidy, and their faculty coach Erin Green -- working on their Hillbilly Chili recipe.
