Are you a fan of Top Chef ? Are you inspired to do more cooking at home or to become a trained chef? Then take this 3 hr. (approx.) walking tour, In the Steps of a Top Chef. (We’ll also jump on the subway for a short ride.)
Visit some of the neighborhoods, shops, restaurants & landmarks that the chefs went to while in NY. Taste some great food, experience things not offered to the public & learn what it’s like to be a chef.
Participate in an interactive challenge and shop like a chef (and enjoy a special discount.) Learn how to use a variety of knives and have a snack at one of Tom Colicchio’s eateries.
Enjoy a variety of tastes:
- Sandwiches at ‘wichcraft
- Savory snack made by a former cheftestant
- A Chinatown Treat
- Artisan Cheese in Little Italy where Leah shopped
Many real-life locations are featured on the tour, including:
- Where Gail had her bridal shower
- The location where Carla cooked squab & peas
- Where the chefs shopped for their challenges
- The cooking school where they shot during season 3
