Bravo's Top Chef Returns with a Chance to Win a Trip for Two to Tuscany, Italy!

By: Finance Foodie

Where will you always find me on Wednesday nights now? Probably like the rest of the foodie enthusiast community: in front of the TV watching Top Chef All StarsBravo TV's Top Chef series returned to New York a few weeks ago for its 8th season, featuring an all-star cast of former contestants who nearly took home the top prize in past seasons. With culinary stardom on the line, these "cheftestants" return to the high-pressure world of competitive cooking for a chance at redemption.
Finance Foodie + Friends w/ Chef Hung (Top Chef Season 3 Champ) at Solo NYC

The winner of Top Chef: All-Stars will receive a showcase at the annual Food & Wine showcase in Aspen AND $200,000 to pursue their culinary dreams, furnished by Buitoni. But Buitoni wants to also offer the regular viewer folks at home an opportunity to make their culinary dreams come true. By entering the "Discover Our Italian Masterpieces" contest, there is a chance to win a trip for two to Casa Buitoni in the heart of Tuscany, Italy.
