Open auditions for ‘The Taste’ in Chicago

An ABC reality show is preparing for its upcoming season by holding a casting call in Chicago.

The Taste is a cooking-themed competition that has completed two seasons so far.  Its third season will start early next year.

Sixteen professional and home cooks try to win a blind taste test by a panel of four culinary masters.  The winners of each of the first two seasons have received $100,000.

Food enthusiasts interested in being on The Taste can attend an open casting call Saturday at Centered Chef Food Studios in Chicago.  Anyone who attends will have to bring a signature dish with them to be tasted.

Boston is also hosting a casting call for the show on Saturday.  Los Angeles, Seattle, and Austin, Texas have hosted other open auditions in the last few weeks.
