Anthony Bourdain, Tom Colicchio to Guest on The Simpsons

Who would have guessed that Springfield would become a foodie destination?

The Simpsons' 23rd season will see both snarkmaster extraordinaire Anthony Bourdain and Top Chef head judge Tom Colicchio make guest appearances on the animated series.

Colicchio makes his appearance in the first episode in the show's 23rd

season, which premieres on September 25th. In it, Marge dreams of being a

contestant on Top Chef, where Colicchio plays himself. Keifer Sutherland also makes an appearance in the episode, entitled, The Falcon and The D'Ohman.


not sure where Anthony Bourdain fits in, but by the looks of the

mandals he's wearing, the chickens hanging in the background and the

hiking boots on Bart and Lisa, we may be seeing a No Reservations-style trip in the future for our favorite family of cartoon misfits.

Here's The Simpson's Episode of Top Chef Masters, where the cheftestants have to create a dish inspired by a Simpsons character. We love Suser Lee's Marge Simpson head made out of purple potatoes and Rick Bayless' shrimp Sloppy D'Oh.
