Top Chef Boston, a New Top Chef Spinoff, and More Voltaggio TV?

We previously shared reports that Seattle is in the running as the location for Top Chef Season 10. Now we hear Boston is courting the Top Chef producers. Since the show has turned into a pay-to-play venture, Eater Philly bemoans that its city is too broke to be a contender. But they have some wry ideas for Top Chef Philadelphia challenges.

Michelle Obama took her “Let’s Move” campaign to Dallas last week, where she was joined by Tom Colicchio and TC alums Richard Blais, Fabio Viviani, Jenn Carroll, Spike Mendelsohn, Grayson Schmitz, and Paul Qui. Turns out the event was included in filming for a new Top Chef spinoff dubbed “Life After Chef,” reports Pegasus News.

Maryland Public TV recently aired a half-hour program with Bryan Voltaggio called “Obsessed With Everything Food.” Now Baltimore Fishbowl reports the program is a pilot for a new series by Voltaggio is pitching. You can find the trailer here.

If you're still hungry for reality TV, check out this casting call from Top Chef producers the Magical Elves, who are looking for "a select group of drivers – teams of two with an open-mind, strong personality and a hunger for adventure – to take the wheel of the first all-electric vehicle from Ford." Unsurprisingly, the winning team will receive said all-electric vehicle, a Ford Focus Electric.
