The new lineup for Bravo's hit show--which kicks off on August 26 and is filmed in Vegas--has just been announced, and there's not a single SoCal (let alone OC) chef on the list
. UPDATE: OK, there's Michael Voltaggio, although, weirdly, Bravo's own press info has him cooking both in LA and in Pasadena (it's actually the latter, where he's chef de cuisine at the Langham as of very recently).
There's the usual nod to New York, San Francisco, et al, including, intriguingly, Preeti Mistry (pictured), Executive Chef at Google, but none from around here...
Come on, Top Chef, recognize our local talent too!!
