Award-winning chef Jean-Christophe Novelli comes to Bravo in the new nine-part series Chef Academy. The series will follow Novelli (a very popular celebrity chef in the UK) as he attempts to launch a U.S. branch of his cooking school in Southern California. In this preview from bravotv.com, prospects must impress Chef Novelli and his executive chef Steve Kitchen in order to earn one of nine spots in an eight week long test program for his culinary academy.
The French-born chef's Novelli Academy Cookery School was voted one of the Top 25 Cookery Schools in the World. Will he be able to duplicate this success across the pond? Chef Academy premieres this Monday night at 11 ET/PT on Bravo.
