Earlier this week Eater Boston said rumors were swirling that Top Chef might be filming upcoming Season 12 in Boston. Yesterday those rumors were confirmed. The cast and crew will film all over the city and at the coast, including sites like Fenway Park and Plimoth Plantation as possible destinations. The season will also involve some Boston personalities who are affiliated with the show. Past Boston-based “Top Chef” contestants include Sweet Cheeks boss Tiffani Faison , who was on the first season of the series, and restaurateur Michael Schlow , who was on “Top Chef Masters” were mentioned in the Boston Globe article.
I’ve never watched the show since cooking competitions stress me out. I’m more interested in the food than the intrigue or competition, but I think it will be cool to have them showcase Boston by filming here.
