Bravo to Hold Nationwide Casting Calls For Top Chef and Top Chef: Just Desserts

Yesterday Bravo officially announced that Top Chef: Just Desserts is coming back for a second season (but you knew that already). Anyway, to find contestants for Just Desserts and Top Chef season nine, Bravo is going to whip the nation into a food reality frenzy by hosting a bunch of open calls in cities all over the country, including Houston, New York, Austin, Philadelphia, Charleston, Chicago, Seattle, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.

If you can't make it though, you can always download and fill out the 25-page application (PDF) that asks you to do things like "Create a culinary interpretation of the lyric 'Five Golden Rings' from the song 'Twelve Days of Christmas'" and "Create a dish inspired by the color blue."

Here's the full press release with all the casting calls and dates and locations:
