Ed Lee's Bourbon Collaboration; MTV, FN Casting Calls

LOUISVILLE— Chef Edward Lee has teamed with small-batch bourbon markers at Jefferson's to release a special-edition "chef's collaboration" spirit, a blend of bourbon and rye. The 610 Magnolia and MilkWood chef worked with founder Trey Zoeller to mix "fruit-forward" bourbon with a spicy Jefferson's 10 year-old Straight Rye Whiskey inspired by Lee's food. The bottles are $40 each and now available for purchase. [EaterWire]

MULTIPLE CITIES— Casting is now underway for the 10th season of Food Network Star, with open-call castings scheduled for cities like New York, Providence, LA, and Chicago throughout October and November. Meanwhile, MTV's first foray into culinary competitions, the Eddie-Huang-hosted Snackdown, is casting Southern Californians who are the "SNACK MASTER and the GO-TO CHEF in your apartment, dorm or frat house." Applications for the latter can be found here. [EaterWire]

PARIS— Cronut king Dominique Ansel reveals his list of go-to Parisian patisseries to the folks at Vanity Fair. Among them: Hugo et Victor, Un Dimanche à Paris, and L'Éclair de génie, where "everything is a piece of art." [VF]
