Hitting the high seas with 'Top Chef' on a culinary cruise

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Food is a big part of any cruise, but "Top Chef" is taking that to a new level with an April cruise that allows passengers to rub elbows and break bread with the show's judges and chefs.

Former winners and contestants on the Bravo cooking competition will set sail April 11 on a four-night sojourn with hosts Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons on the Celebrity Constellation. The trip leaves from Miami and stops in Key West and Cozumel, Mexico.

Season 10 winner Kristen Kish and finalist Brooke Williamson are among the featured guests who will take part in a host of activities, from Quickfire challenges and Q&A sessions to dance parties and cooking demos. Other "Top Chef" personalities who will be onboard: Season nine fan favorite "Malibu" Chris Crary, Richard Blais, Yigit Pura, Paul Qui, Fabio Viviani (who recently opened his new eatery in Chicago), Hubert Keller, Tim Love, Tiffany Derry, Chris Hanmer, Michael Isabella, Spike Mendelsohn, Hosea Rosenberg, Angelo Sosa and Casey Thompson.

It's not all about cooking. Guests can play ping pong with Spike, jet ski with Casey and try their luck at poker with Hosea and Mike.

Staterooms are on sale at www.topchefthecruise.com.
