Bravo announced that Kentucky will host Top Chef season 16, which will be filmed this spring and air later this year. The show and its contestants will visit Louisville, Lexington, and Lake Cumberland.
In a press release, Bravo executive Shari Levine says, “We are always looking for rising culinary destinations and are looking forward to planting our flag in Kentucky and soaking up a diverse region of the country that we haven’t yet explored on Top Chef.”
The show is working in partnership with the Kentucky Department of Tourism, and its commissioner, Kristen Branscum, said in the press release that “Kentucky is internationally known for its bourbon and horses, but our rich culinary culture is an unexpected, hidden gem.”
Season 16 is currently casting.
