She's only 15 years old and already vows to become a chef.
Morgan Goldstein, of Shaker Heights, has gotten off to a good start.
She competed on Food Network's Chopped Teen Competition last summer, making it to the third round before elimination.
She was the youngest competitor.
In January, Cleveland Magazine named her one of the city's 'Most Interesting People.'
Morgan stopped by Fox 8 News in the Morning Monday to demonstrate her skills and share a delicious recipe:
Morgan's Spring Risotto
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup minced onion
1 clove garlic minced
4 oz diced pancetta
2 cups Arborio rice
6 cups vegetable stock
1/3 cup dry white wine juice
zest of 1 lemon
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
1 zucchini diced
1/2 cup thin asparagus (quartered)
1/3 fresh Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon chopped basil
Heat olive oil in a large, heavy pan over medium heat
Add the pancetta and cook until crisp, add onion and cook for 1 minute then add the garlic
Add rice and cook for 2 minutes until almost translucent
Add the wine and lemon juice and zest and stir until absorbed
Add one cup of the broth and wait until the rice completely absorbs it, stirring frequently
Repeat this process until there is only 1 more cup stock left, about 15 minutes
Once the rice is almost tender add the vegetables,basil, salt and pepper and cook for 5-10 minutes,
stirring very frequently, until the rice is tender and starchy
Take the pan off the heat and add the cheese and butter. Stir until creamy
Garnish with chopped basil and more fresh Parmesan cheese
