Both those who with an interest in local cuisine and those who
would like to see the world of reality television envelope their
day-to-day existence may want to catch the next episode of
Chef, the Bravo network series that pits chefs of varying
backgrounds against each other in cooking competitions. As first
reported on Santa Barbara food blog
Cookies in Heaven, The January 17 episode of the show — titled
“Seduction in Santa Barbara” — takes place at the Epiphany restaurant. Located at 21
W. Victoria Street and co-owned by Kevin Costner, Epiphany will be
the site of the episode’s elimination challenge, which will end
with one of this season’s remaining five chefs packing up his
knives and heading home. The episode is especially remarkable as
this season has been filmed almost exclusively in the Los Angeles
area, making the road trip up to these parts a feather in the cap
for both Epiphany and the food scene in Santa Barbara.
Top Chef airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
