Bravo hits the road again with a customized “Top Chef” 18-wheeler semi-truck destined for Troy, in partnership with Comcast, as part of the network’s highly-anticipated fifth annual “Top Chef: The Tour.”
The bus will be parked in the Saks Fifth Avenue parking lot this Saturday. Three live competitive and mouth-watering interactive shows are open to the public at 10:30 a.m., noon and 1:30 p.m.
The 15-city tour brings the Emmy- and James Beard Award-winning No. 1 food show on cable to fans and foodies nationwide. Back by popular demand, the tour will feature a show-down between two former Chef’testants – Chris Jones (Season 9) and Eli Kirshtein (Season 6) – who will compete in a live, interactive cook-off in front of “Top Chef” fans with a panel of local judges and audience members.
The free event offers fans the unique opportunity to meet and greet the Chef’testants they’ve come to know and root for, hear “Top Chef” show secrets and, for the first time ever, step into the judges' shoes and rate their favorite Chef’testants’ food.
Guests will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of on-site activities, including: a “Top Chef”-themed Cornhole Toss; Tip the Scale, where fans will be tasked with putting items in order of weight; and a “Top Chef” Horseshoe Toss. Attendees will also have the chance to win prizes in an affiliate-sponsored challenge, presented locally by Comcast.
Additionally, visitors can purchase Bravo and “Top Chef” merchandise on-site. “Top Chef: The Tour” is brought to you locally by Henry Ford Hospital. For more information, visit http://www.bravotv.com/thetour.
