A Bravo's Top Chef alum is getting the movie treatment!

How to Watch

Watch the Top Chef Season 21 premiere on Wednesday, March 20 at 9/8c on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

Top Chef Season 13 contestant Kwame Onwuachi, who also appeared on Season 15, will have his memoir Notes From a Young Black Chef  turned into a film starring actor Lakeith Stanfield, Variety reports.

The story depicts Kwame's journey beginning with his childhood in the Bronx with a mostly single mother to opening a fine-dining restaurant in Washington D.C. at age 26. It follows the highs and lows of becoming a chef in a predominately white industry, including Kwame's experience financing his first catering business by selling candy on the subway. Of course, his time on Top Chef will also be featured in the film.

The script from the memoir, written by Kwame and and Joshua David Stein, will be adapted by Randy McKinnon. The film will be produced by Stephen “Dr” Love, with Stanfield and Colin Stark executive producing.

Mazel to Kwame!
