Richard Blais, Top Chef Season 4

Chuck Hodes/ BRAVO

Blame American Idol.

Following in the profit-reaping footsteps of Idol and Dancing With the Stars before it, an unlikely reality show has decided to embark on a nationwide roadie.

Top Chef: The Tour launches its 20-date trip this month.

Talk about rouxing the day...

Four "cheftestants" from the show will host interactive programs in each city, providing cooking demonstrations, meet and greets, food tastings and offering show secrets to the culinary fans in attendance.
