Rumor on the street (courtesy of 5280) was that Bravo's new show Around The World in 80 Plates included some local talent, and sure enough, our own Jenna Johansen is competing. Johansen, chef/restaurateur/blogger/cooking class instructor, recently left her exec chef post at Dish in Edwards to continue her culinary pursuits in Denver. Johansen will join 11 chefs on a 40-day adventure across 10 countries. We'll follow the chefs through Argentina, China, England, France, Italy, Morocco, Spain, Thailand, United States and Uruguay. Celebrity chefs like Wolfgang Puck, José Andrés, Nigella Lawson, Narda Lepes, and Alvin Leung will serve as something called the "Food Ambassadors." Sounds intense, yes? Show hosts Curtis Stone and Cat Cora will introduce Around The World in 80 Plates on Wednesday, May 9 at 10pm. Hop over to Eater National for a the full cast list and a lovely teaser video.
