The Next Great Chef

What are you doing tomorrow? If the answer to that question is "nothing" and you happen to love cooking challenge shows like I do, then you should check out tomorrow's taping of The Next Great Chef.

The show will be taped for the Food Network between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Friday, May 2, at the Studios at Comcast Media Center, 4100 East Dry Creek Road in Centennial. The event will be emceed by Keegan Gerhard and will feature four chefs competing in two rounds -- appetizer and entrée -- to display their skills. The competitors are Sean Brock, Chris Cheung, Jonathan Leiva and Sue Zemanick and the stakes are high -- the winning chef takes home a prize of $10,000.

The event has limited seating and you must RSVP to Mitch Dickman at 720-290-1104 to get in, but if watching TV alone on your couch has lost its once glorious appeal, maybe it's time to get a closer look at the competition. Hurry to the kitchen -- things are sure sizzling in there.
