Seattle Welcomes Top Chef
I don't know if I've mentioned it here before, but I have a fairly serious addiction to cooking shows. Call me soft-headed, but I can't help myself! No, no I don't let the baby watch them, but when nap time comes, the TV goes on, and I enjoy a wide variety of personalities. One of my favorites, and one of the few my husband likes too, is Top Chef. It's a reality competition to choose the best cook, and it includes all sorts of culinary challenges. It's been around for several seasons, but usually manages to stay fairly fresh and interesting. One way it does that is by changing the filming location for each season. This time they've selected Seattle!
Woo! There have been sightings all over the city (and a few outlying areas) where they visit a restaurant or a Whole Foods. Of course we know they will go to Pike Place Market (obligatory for any TV show in Seattle) and probably visit a Tom Douglas restaurant, but it will be interesting to see what else might be featured. Only time will tell. As yet, Bravo is not saying when the new series will be aired. Maybe sometime in the fall?
