Top Chef is coming to Kentucky

Here’s a piece of news to get your mind off basketball: Top Chef is coming to Kentucky. Yes, Bravo’s famous culinary competition series selected Kentucky as the location of its 16th season, which will air later this year. According to Bravo, Kentucky’s traditions of bourbon and barbeque and growing culinary scene make it an ideal setting for the series.

“We are always looking for rising culinary destinations and are looking forward to planting our flag in Kentucky and soaking up a diverse region of the country that we haven’t yet explored on Top Chef,” Shari Levine, Executive Vice President, Current Production, Bravo Media said in a statement. “Kentucky has a strong food identity and we know our incoming chefs will be inspired by the bourgeoning culinary scene, known for its innovative takes on Southern cuisine, melding flavors, and use of Kentucky’s agricultural bounty.”

Kentucky Department of Tourism commissioner Kristen Branscum added, “Kentucky is internationally known for its bourbon and horses, but our rich culinary culture is an unexpected, hidden gem.  Our robust agricultural offerings and unique approach to food in every region of the state, combined with Kentucky’s natural outdoor beauty will surprise and delight the Top Chef viewers.”

Hot browns, burgoo, bourbon, mutton, country ham and biscuits, oh my! Filming will take place in Louisville, Lexington, and Lake Cumberland this spring. If you’re interested in throwing your apron in the ring, applications are currently being accepted. Drew, you got this.

      I find it very interesting. If the time to scroll past it bothers you, seems weird you’d also take the time to comment.
