Top Chef DC Gets Spicy
If you’re a fan of Bravo's "Top Chef," get ready to add some politics to your ceviche recipe. It’s been reported for weeks that the culinary competition had already begun filming their next season in Washington, DC. And since the city isn’t really known for any culinary specialties—other than half-smokes—its appropriate that the producers would spice up the next season with some political flavor. The network said Monday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Congressman Aaron Schock, and Sen. Mark Warner will appear during the upcoming season. You can also expect to see Assistant White House Chef and Food Initiative Coordinator Sam Kass, CIA Director Leon Panetta, and the man who can’t seem to stay off the TV, Buzz Aldrin. Rumor has it there will be at least one special guest judge, but mum's the word.
