Well, this was inevitable: Bravo has announced that its developing a series with its pet Top Chef guest, Rocco DiSpirito, who is not a chef but plays one on TV. As we read the release, our eyes glazed over, our tongue rolled back, and we went into a state of catatonic indifference, namely because Roccos Dinner Party sounds exactly like Top Chef except ( la Chopped) there are four new contestants on each show, and all of the final challenges involve throwing a themed dinner party for Rocco, who is said to be one of the culinary worlds most influential figures. If thats not hyperbole enough, consider that the contestants will be some of the countrys most promising aspiring chefs and Rocco will be joined by many of the most influential tastemakers today. Hopefully that means Chodorow.
