Art Smith, chef to Oprah Winfrey and Florida governors everywhere, has confirmed via Twitter that he will host "a whole bunch" of same-sex weddings during this season of the Bravo competition show Top Chef.

Last week, show judge Gail Simmons tweeted out a request for same-sex couples who were interested in a Top Chef-catered wedding.

Earlier this year, Smith hosted a large ceremony for dozens of gay couples in Miami Beach. That event, which came in the wake of Florida's January repeal of its same-sex marriage ban, was officiated by celebrity chef Guy Fieri.
