Bravo's 'Top Chef' casting in Chicago

Calling all chefs: Bravo’s “Top Chef” is coming to Chicago.

There will be a casting call for the 12th season of the cooking competition Feb. 24 at Spiaggia (For those who don’t know, Spiaggia chef and partner Tony Mantuano competed on the second season of “Top Chef Masters”). You can pre-register here and download the application here.

What is “Top Chef” looking for in an applicant?

The “Top Chef’ website says “If you have the passion and talent for cooking, you are exactly who we're looking for! If you are a restaurateur, executive chef, chef de cuisine or sous chef -- you are encouraged to apply!”

OK, so that’s kind of broad and not much help. But if you think you have what it takes, go ahead and apply. What do you have to lose?
