Top Chef Coming to Tustin Market Place TODAY
As Top Chef Masters heads into the finale this week, the timing is just right for a visit from some of the Jedis-in-training. Oh yes, the Top Chef Tour has reached Orange County.
With promises of games, prizes, photo and autograph opportunities, the question remains: When will they find time for a cooking demo? Maybe they should figure out how they're gonna cook in an AT&T store first. Perhaps it's an outdoor grill-off? Hmmmm...that probably explains all the blocked off areas over the weekend.
Here's what we do know:
Chefs Marcel (insert foam/Wolverine reference here) Vigneron versus Brian (I was a finalist in Season 3) Malarkey from San Diego will be having a cook-off, reminiscent of their Quickfire Challenge days. Demonstrations will be held at 10:30 a.m., 12 p.m., and 1:30 p.m. Anyone who hasn't already pre-registered still has an opportunity to watch them in action, as there are first come, first serve seats available the day of.
If you've read this far, then all that's left is to save the date. That's TODAY, June 16. The AT&T store in the Tustin Market Place is at 2775 El Camino Real. Now please pack your knives and go.
