NEW YORK, NY -- October 16, 2006 - Marking the first originally produced cooking program of its kind, Bravo unveils "Top Recipe: The Wong Way To Cook," a new webisode series dedicated to the broadband space that will showcase the winning recipe from each week's episode of "Top Chef." "Top Recipe: The Wong Way To Cook" will be hosted by Chef Lee Anne Wong, one of the most popular and highly-regarded chefs featured on the first season of Bravo's "Top Chef." Each week, Chef Lee Anne will demonstrate for viewers the winning recipe unveiled on "Top Chef," which makes its second season debut Wednesday, October 18 on Bravo. A new webisode of "Top Recipe: The Wong Way To Cook" will debut on BravoTV.com every Thursday. The announcement was made by Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo.

"This originally produced webisode series offers a new viewing opportunity to our highly engaged viewers," said Zalaznick. "It's a place where our viewers can log-on and further connect with one of their favorite Bravo personalities and explore the creative process -- in this case through Leanne's culinary arts."

Filmed in New York City at The French Culinary Institute, this 12-episode webisode series will feature the artistic culinary skills and outgoing personality of Chef Lee Anne Wong as she replicates each winning recipe from the current episode of "Top Chef." Produced by Magical Elves for Bravo, each webisode will run three minutes long.

Chef Lee Anne is the Executive Chef of Event Operations at the esteemed French Culinary Institute in New York City, where she composes original menus of her modern global fusion style, drawing on her artistic background for inspiration. Since her appearance on "Top Chef" last season, Chef Lee Anne has kept busy. She served as the culinary producer for season two of "Top Chef," and recently completed a gig as the culinary consultant on the new Warner Brothers remake of "Mostly Martha" starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Aaron Eckhart. She also assisted in the PBS production of "Chef's Story," a new TV series filmed at The French Culinary Institute and starring 26 of America's greatest chefs including Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud, and Rick Bayless. Chef Lee Anne is playing a vital role in the design of The French Culinary Institute's Culinary Lab, a state-of-the-art laboratory and classroom outfitted with today's most cutting edge technology and equipment, slated to open this year. Here, she will work alongside visiting chefs and The French Culinary Institute's Director of Culinary Technology, David Arnold, in continuing to develop and showcase the next generation of avant-garde cooking techniques.
