Does He Have a Shot?!

Hold on to your seats, people.
GrubStreet reports the Beard Awards has added a Best TV Food Personality category this year.
They'll announce nominees when finalists for the other categories are unveiled March 22 (winner will then be announced at the Book & Media Awards on Sunday, May 2).
We're wondering if hometown hero Rick Bayless (Frontera Grill/Topolobampo/Xoco) will be one of the nominees.
After all, his PBS show, "Mexico: One Plate at a Time," has been on the air for six seasons, and he was named the first-ever "Top Chef Master."
We'll see what happens!
And speaking of the "Top Chef" franchise, Bravo just announced the "Top Chef: The Tour" dates.
It kicks off on April 14 in St. Louis, Mo., but they haven't released the Chicago date yet.
