The first-ever Bravo's Top Chef Food & Wine Festival is coming to Universal Studios Hollywood on March 19-20, 2020. At this two-day culinary excursion, fans will be able to enjoy an all-inclusive eclectic menu inspired by the series, live challenges, food and wine pairings, and panels with Top Chef alums.
Attendees will be able to dine on dishes inspired by the cheftestants' culinary creations over the years, as well as watch Top Chef veterans go head-to-head in a series of live cooking demonstrations. In addition to a general admission ticket to the event, guests can also purchase a premium VIP ticket inviting them to experience opportunities like 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 special commemorative gift.
“We are thrilled to partner with Bravo’s ‘Top Chef’ to introduce this exclusive Food & Wine Festival,” said Karen Irwin, President & COO, Universal Studios Hollywood, in a statement. “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.”
“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, NBCUniversal, in a statement. “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.”
