Whether you’re an uber-fan of Bravo’s “Top Chef” series or just a foodie in search of your next meal you’ll want to get down to Phoenix Public Market Saturday morning as the “Top Chef: The Tour 3” 18-wheeler pulls into the lot.
“Top Chef: The Tour 3” is a 21-city promotional tour that gives  fans a chance to interact with the popular reality cooking show’s colorful personalities of seasons past.
RyanScottThe Phoenix tour stop will feature Season 4’s Ryan Scott (pictured) and Season 3’s CJ Jacobson. Fans will sample food, receive gourmet cooking tips, participate in “Top Chef” drills, hear behind-the-scenes stories from the show, and have the chance to compete in their own Quickfire Challenge. 
There will also be a hole-in-one contest on the “Top Chef” putting green, “Top Chef” merchandise sales, and a Judges Table photo opportunity (sorry, neither Padma Lakshmi nor Tom Colicchio are scheduled to appear).
