If you haven't already heard the news, the culinary competition Top Chef, that airs on BRAVO channel will be filming in Charleston, SC for the next season. Now we know there are soooo many famous local landmarks and people here in the city that I am sure they will incorporate into each episode, however we, The Charleston Crunch Co., have our own ideas and requests to make the next installment worthy of standing ovations by the time the credits even think about rolling.
1. Invite our owner and operator Erica Alcox, aka Geechie Gurl, to be a judge for a quick fire challenge. She DID graduate with a degree in Nutrition and Food Management and she likes to eat.:-)
2. Have a challenge where the chefs work with our Undercover Chef students.
3. Have a room full of Family and Consumer Sciences educators (current and retired) to give awareness to our profession which is where most students begin their interest in the culinary career. We get overlooked too much. It's not your mother's Home Ec.
4. Use Fresh Future Farm as a location for a challenge. We can't forget the work being done in our communities or the small businesses that could use the funds to continue the work. We're sure "Southern Charm" takes care of the well known places. Sharing is caring!
5.Just don't forget about the little people, known as the native Charlestonians who make the Lowcountry what it is.
We're excited to have them filming in the Holy City. Maybe they'll need some good ol' Chucktown Chewies!
