Top Chef: The Cruise to Lure All Food Fans Into a Boat
Joining the likes of Paula Deen and Nobu Matsuhisa, a ton of celebrity chef and cheftestants will all be hosting Top Chef: The Cruise next April.
The swag: Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons, plus past masters and cheftestants, will host a "retrospective Q&A," participate in quickfire cooking challenges, and put on demos. Meanwhile, the ship will set sail from Miami, stopping in Key West, Fla., and Cozumel, Mexico.
Prices start at $699 and go up to $5,999 for the Penthouse Suite. Sure, it's only from April 11 to 15 (in 2013) and doesn't hit up Rome like Food Network's cruise does, but you'll be riding alongside Colicchio and Simmons, plus Hubert Keller, Tim Love, Jennifer Carroll, Tiffany Derry, Chris Hanmer, Michael Isabella, Spike Mendelsohn, Hosea Rosenberg, Angelo Sosa, and Casey Thompson. Also, menu items will be inspired by the show (although probably not cooked by the chefs themselves; it's their vacation, too).
