If you've got a hankering for a serving of Top Chef before Top Chef: Masters begins, you're in luck. Top Chef: The Tour 2 — the show's second national tour — will kick off its 22-city tour this Friday at the Flatiron Pedestrian Plaza in New York. Each stop, including a special visit to Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby weekend, will feature two cheftestants hosting four interactive live shows with cooking demos and food tastings.

I'm really disappointed to see that they're hitting 22 cities, but San Francisco will not be one of them. Is the tour hitting your town? Find out when you read more.
