Seems as if the producers of the Emmy award-winning Top Chef are putting together a potential new cooking-related series for Bravo -- and they need new blood.
With qualifications that include "...professional chefs of all levels, who have a lifelong love affair with food, a passion for creating visually impressive dishes, and a desire for adventure," I'm sure we can think of more than a few qualified Valley chefs to represent, right? Hell, yeah.
Now it's just a matter of pestering the hell out of them. Find out all the details after the jump.
To be considered for the new show, entrants should e-mail CHEFCOMPETITIONCASTING@GMAIL.COM immediately and include name, phone number, city, state, current job title, restaurant name where they work, and a recent photo.
