Bravo announced two new cooking shows yesterday: A competition show, Top Chef Junior and an untitled docu-series following world-renowed chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli.
Top Chef Junior will be a competition show (based on Top Chef) with teens ages 13-16 competing to become a junior Top Chef, and the untitled “Jean-Christophe Novelli Project” will be a docu-series following Jean as he moves to L.A. to start a new professional cooking school. I guess they have to fill their slate somehow with Project Runway being gone, and cooking works for them…so if it ain’t broke…
The Jean-Christophe show sounds pretty simple. It’ll be good if his students are interesting, so I guess it’s all based on the casting. There is hope for this show, as his “Novelli Academy Cookery School” in the UK has placed in the “Top 25 Cookery Schools in the World.” And, The New York Times did call Jean, “World’s Sexiest Chef.” With that said, I’m all for good food and a hot chef.
I have to say, that I’m a little hesitant about Top Chef Junior. I feel like the Bravo audience will either LOVE the teens and eat it up or completely revolt and it could ruin the Top Chef brand completely (no in between). Can’t wait to see what they give us…Casting, Casting, Casting. Fingers crossed.
