Top Chef will hit its tenth season this year, and they are looking for San Francisco-based gastronomic talent for the big one-zero. Might you be the next cheftestant? While Bravo's food competition show shows slight signs of age — let's face it, it's no RuPaul's Drag Race; a show on par creatively and critically as Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and even Bad Girls Club, it is the most important thing on TV right now — they still showcase major cooking prowess and drama, something the Bay Area has in spades.

An open casting call for Top Chef contestants will happen on Monday, February 27, in SOMA's Kitchit at 848 Folsom (at Fourth Street) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. No knives necessary for the open calls, but bring your completed application, photo, resume, video, a sample menu, and "a disc or jump drive with photos of your food."

Additional casting dates and can be found at Bravo's website.
