Kitchen Nightmares

One of my besties who was a hot shot caster in NYC agreed to pass along all information to me related to casting for culinary shows so we can see more great Louisvillians on tv! Though this is probably for a restaurant that needs a little more inspiration:

Get yelled at by Chef Ramsey on national tv!

Kitchen Nightmares is now casting!  The cities they are casting in aren’t important – all restaurants should apply if interested. MUST have a good story to tell! (family owned, loan against a house, etc…) Restaurants must:

  • Have been open at least one year
  • Offer dinner service
  • Not be a franchise or chain
  • Have at least 35 seats

Cook for Top Chef

I have such a profound interest in chefs for someone who does very little cooking herself.  Chefs are often creative, gutsy, and have complete control of every aspect of their kitchen.  They’ve got the dicey personality that takes no prisoners, which why I think it was surprising to a lot of viewers that Top Chef’s Beverly is such a meek person.   But watching 610 Magnolia‘s Chef Edward Lee compete on Top Chef this season makes me very proud that he is from Louisville.  He is now in the top 4 in the competition, which is no easy feat considering they started the season with 29 excellent chefs.  Not to mention this guy is hilarious.

Follow Chef Lee on Twitter or Facebook.

I hope that as Louisville continues to gain attention as one of the coolest foodie towns in the world (thanks ZAGAT).  Are you a Louisville chef looking to step into the massive shoes of Edward Lee? Well Top Chef Season 10 is now casting:

I’m currently casting for Top Chef 10 and I’ve been doing a lot of research into the chefs that would be great for the show. You might already be familiar with the show, but in recent years we’ve had some pretty amazing chefs who’ve pushed the boundaries in the culinary world, so we’re really trying to raise the bar this season. We’re looking for strong, talented, and entertaining chefs who have really charismatic personalities (or any traits that might get people to sit up and pay attention) and hopefully have pretty impressive resumes to match.
