Stamford teen cooks with Regis on ‘Rachael Ray Show’

Over the last few weeks, Hunter Zampa has been under the tutelage of Food Network stars Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri on the pair’s “Kids Cook-Off” program.

Now, the student is becoming the teacher.

Zampa, of Stamford, will teach one of his recipes to none other then Regis Philbin on “Rachael Ray Show,” airing Friday, Sept. 20 at 10 a.m. on ABC.

The 13-year-old culinary wunderkind will be joined by Ray as he shows the veteran television host and frequent “Ray” guest how to make his venison medallions with peanut sauce.

Zampa, a student at Scofield Magnet Middle School, is currently a contestant on Food Network’s “Rachael vs. Guy: Kids’ Cook-Off.” Hosted by Ray and Fieri, the show splits kids between “Team Rachel” and “Team Guy” as they compete against each other in a series of challenges cooked up to test their skills in the kitchen. Zampa is a member of “Team Rachel.”

Following his appearance on “Rachael Ray,” Zampa will host a free screening of “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatball 2” for his classmates at The Landmark Bow Tie theater in Stamford on Thursday, Sept. 26. The screening was given to Zampa as a prize for his participation in “Rachael vs. Guy.”
