LAGRANGE, GA (WTVM) - A 12-year-old is chopping, slicing and dicing his way to a national cooking TV show. 

Zikei Brooks is no ordinary pre-teen from LaGrange. Unlike most seventh graders you can find Zikei in the kitchen cooking up a storm.  

To showcase some of his stellar cooking techniques, he will be featuring his cooking skills on the nationally televised cooking show "Chopped." 

The episode is scheduled to air Nov. 8 on the Food Network. He says his love and inspiration of cooking came from his mother and grandmother. 

If Zikei wins, he takes home $10,000.
