You might remember chatter about a new food reality show on Bravo called Around the World in 80 Plates a few months back. Well, the folks at Bravo have announced a premiere date of May 9 (at 10PM ET/PT) and the full cast list just this morning! Kaboom. Just to refresh your memory, the show will be hosted by chefs Curtis Stone and Cat Cora and the concept is like a mash-up of Top Chef and The Amazing Race, following 12 chefs over 40 days across 10 countries including Argentina, China, England, France, Italy, Morocco and more. The contestants will travel to a different city and learn the culture/cuisine and then compete in two cooking challenges to test out their skills. Behold the list of cheftestants - notable among them is Chaz Brown of NYC's Fatty Crab, who was also on the most recent season of Top Chef! Guess you can never be on enough reality shows, right?
