Universal Studios Hollywood and Bravo are teaming up for the first-ever Bravo’s Top Chef Food & Wine Festival, happening March 19-20, 2020.
Guests can take a bite out of an all-inclusive menu inspired by the television series, enjoy live challenges, food & wine pairings, and panels featuring “Top Chef” alums.
The two-day, separately-ticketed event will take place at Universal Studios Hollywood, and will feature dozens of food, wine, craft beer, and spirit stations with dishes inspired by contestants’ creations over the years.
“We are thrilled to partner with Bravo’s ‘Top Chef’ to introduce this exclusive Food & Wine Festival,” said Karen Irwin, president and COO of Universal Studios Hollywood. “As an industry leader, we take as much pride in our culinary offerings as we do with our innovative rides and we’re excited that our Executive Chef will have the opportunity to collaborate with these acclaimed ‘Top Chef’ alums to create this unique food and wine event, and we look forward to toasting the occasion with our guests.”
In addition to general admission to the event, guests can purchase a premium VIP ticket, which includes access to an exclusive tasting and wine pairing hosted by a “Top Chef” alum, meet and greets with the “Cheftestants,” early access to the theme park, complimentary parking, and a commemorative gift.
The inaugural Bravo’s Top Chef Food & Wine Festival will coincide with the Season 17 premiere of “Top Chef,” which returns on Thursday, March 19 on Bravo with All-Stars LA.
“Bravo’s Top Chef Food & Wine Festival will give guests an opportunity to interact with their beloved chefs and try the culinary feast firsthand while also giving them a glimpse at the pressure the competitors face in the kitchen with the Quickfire Challenges,” said Ellen Stone, executive vice president, marketing, lifestyle networks for NBC Universal. “Partnering with Universal Studios Hollywood is a natural extension of our brand and offers our incredibly engaged fans of Bravo’s ‘Top Chef’ a unique chance to taste and experience a piece of the hit culinary competition series.”
