"Please pack your knives and go"; I have been a fan of Bravo's reality competition cooking series Top Chef from day one, and now the Emmy award-winning show will be coming to the Bluegrass state for its next season! 

Shooting for season 16 will commence this spring. The cities listed in the announcement include Louisville, Lexington, and Lake Cumberland. Okay, are you kidding me? Are those great food cities? Yes, but I have a feeling they won't be able to pass the barbecue capital of the world, that would Owensboro, by.

Louisville chef Edward Lee appeared on season nine and he even gave the barbecue in Owensboro a shout out.
