Go big or go home – that’s the motto for season nine of the Emmy and James Beard Award-winning No.1 food show on cable, “Top Chef,” as it heads to the state that does everything bigger – Texas. Possibly the worst kept locale secret in this moment’s culinary universe, the new season of “Top Chef” will heartily embrace the Lone Star State’s adage that all things are bigger as, in a series first, the production will head to three cities within the season – Austin, Dallas and San Antonio. Season nine will also showcase many surprising twists and turns and never-before-seen challenges and events. Returning to the judges table is host Padma Lakshmi and head judge, chef Tom Colicchio, alongside judges Gail Simmons and new this season, famed chef and restaurateur Emeril Lagasse and critically acclaimed chef Hugh Acheson. “Top Chef: Texas” will air later this fall.
Oh yeah … I am SO down. I love Top Chef. I love Dallas, Austin and San Antonio. I wholeheartedly approve. I can’t wait to hear more (and see some promo photos) but this is great news to get use excited for the new season. Woot!!
