San Elijo Hills Resident on First Episode of Chopped Jr, November 10th
Eleven year old San Elijo Hills resident Talia Thessen could only dream about being on the Food Network when her family left San Elijo Hills and moved to a small village outside Moscow, Russia in 2012. Her engineer father was transferred to to a small Russian village called Potavo where very few people spoke English and the family followed. Being a self-proclaimed “foodie”, Talia would stream Food Network’s Chopped show to study her craft and feel closer to home. She couldn’t have dreamed in just a few short years, she would be in the Chopped Kitchen competing on the very first edition of Chopped Junior!
Check out fellow San Elijo Hills resident and SEMS sixth grader, Talia Thessen on the very first episode of Chopped Jr, November 10th at 8 pm on the Food Network!
