WESTPORT - A Westport teen is featured as a competitor on the Food Network's "Chopped" teen tournament.

Hannah Bukzin, 14, says she has been cooking since she was around 7 years old. She is one of 16 talented teens to make it to the “Chopped” kitchen.

The self-taught teen says she's competitive and thrives in high pressure situations, making her ready for the show’s mystery ingredients. She prepared one of her signature summer dishes - seared chicken with a vegetable couscous salad.

Hannah also volunteers for the town’s EMS and interns at a local catering company.
