Bravo Casting For Top Chef 7 and Debuting Chef Academy

Bravo Announces Seventh Season of Top Chef, Chef Academy

While the sixth season of Bravo's hit reality cooking competition, Top Chef, is hardly half over, the television network has announced plans to shoot a seventh season. Casting calls begin on Sunday, Oct. 18, in San Francisco and end less than a month later in Los Angeles with stops in Miami, Chicago, Washington DC, New York, and Dallas along the way.

There's no news yet as to which judges and guest chefs are attached to the project, but chances are, filming may overlap with Padma Lakshmi's pregnancy.

Besides Top Chef 7, Bravo will also premiere a new docu-series, Chef Academy, on Nov. 16 at 11 p.m. The show follows chef Jean Christophe Novelli as he opens his first US cooking school. Will you tune in for Chef Academy and another season of Top Chef? Or are you over culinary reality TV?
