Did you know that there’s a Top Chef tour? And, that this 21-city cheftestant trek boasts free admission, cooking demos and a big orange truck? No? Neither did I. Until now, of course. Thanks to Serious Eats, I now know all about the most epic epicurean event on four wheels.
According to Bravo, “At every tour stop, not only will you get to see the chefs in person (and see what they’re REALLY like!), and sample their food, but you’ll also be able to play fun Top Chef games, win prizes, get chef’testant autographs, and take your photo at the Judges Table!”
Having actually been a taster on an episode of Top Chef Masters, I can promise you that meeting the chefs in person is definitely just as much of a foodiegasm as you think it will be. Throw in some prizes and the possibility of posing in front of the judges table, and you’d be a fool not to go. Especially since it’s free. Which is a word that any of us who willingly spend half a paycheck on gourmet goodies from the nearest organic olive oil importer should really appreciate.
And no, Bravo did not pay me to plug them. Although, if anyone wants to hook me up with advanced registration for myself and my Richard-Blais-worshipping little brother, I would be on it faster than you can say liquid nitrogen. . .
