Top Chef: Land of the Asian-Americans

Monday, June 11, 2007

It seems one place where there hasn’t been a dearth of Asian-American faces is on Bravo TV’s Top Chef - and Season Three is proving no different with two new chefs Sara N. (Nguyen), and Hung (Hyunh) who are both Vietnamese-American.

While you may question the fact that they line up both Sara and Hung together in the middle of the promo picture, and that for many people it’s probably not a stretch for them to see Asian-Americans cooking and in the kitchen (can anyone say Chinese takeout?) - you have to give credit where credit is due - and Bravo TV has definitely given Asian-Americans a place to shine on T.V., and with all the great drama that happens on Top Chef, it will be another chance to see more Asian-American personalities rise to the top.
