Lights! Camera! Action!

I consider myself a good secret-keeper, but this one has been no small feat for my big Irish mouth to keep under wraps. Hence why I am so excited, nearly giddy, over-the-top pleased to share that I was chosen to be one of nine contestants on Top Chef Master Thierry Rautureau‘s upcoming Kitchen Circus show!

The general premise is this*:

Ever wonder how masterful dinners are created in a 4-star restaurant?

Each episode of Kitchen Circus features three home cooks testing their skills preparing one course of a three course meal at Seattle’s renowned Rover’s restaurant. Who will master the rigors of a professional kitchen and be voted with the best course of the evening by a FULL house of gourmet diners?

Dishes will be judged on three criteria: taste, presentation, and creativity with one home cook winner each evening. All winners from the first three episodes will move on to the finale dinner at the end of the season, where a champion will be crowned.”

Lots more info and behind-the-scenes skinny to come soon, but for now I just HAD to let the cat out of the bag!
