Here's your chance to cook along with a Top Chef
Can't afford Le Cordon Bleu?
Top Chef University launched this week, based on the wildly popular Bravo TV show, featuring some of the most popular (and unpopular) "chef'testants" offering in-depth, online lessons in how to saute, fry, bake and more. The instructors include some of "Top Chef's" fan favorites and finalists such as: Carla Hall, Kevin Gillespie, Richard Blais, Spike Mendelsohn, Stephanie Izard and -- Boo! Hiss! -- Marcel Vigneron. (Just joking, Marcel.)
From the news release: "Culinary Director Anthony Hoy Fong and "Top Chef's" own resident judge Gail Simmons, also of Food & Wine Magazine, created an innovative and comprehensive curriculum, covering everything from basic knife skills and preparation, to correct cooking techniques and insight into advanced culinary trends."
"Tuition" is linked to access. In all, there are 200 in-depth lessons, 12 courses and over 60 hours of material: $200 gets you immediate access to it all. See the site for more fee details.
