It looks like a new cooking competition show will be filmed in Dutchess County.

New Cooking Show Filming at The Culinary Institute of America

Hollywood on the Hudson strikes again! It looks like there is a new cooking show in the works that is set to be filmed at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York.

In a casting call that was recently posted, it was explained that the new show is part of a "premium streaming service" and is working with the directors from Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, the creators of Top Chef, and an interesting Executive Producer.

The Executive Producer listed for the new culinary show is, surprisingly, basketball star Lebron James... let's hope the show doesn't flop like its EP. Sorry, as a Knick fan, I'm still not over the "taking my talents to Miami" debacle.

I digress.

By looking at the photos provided along with the casting call announcement the show will be filming at the Hyde Park, New York Culinary location. There 3 more locations in California, Texas, and Singapore.

This new culinary cooking competition show is now casting and they're looking for chefs!

Have You Seen The Culinary on TV or in the Movies?

This isn't the first time The Culinary Institute of America has been featured on the big and small screen. The CIA website explains that all 4 of the Culinary locations have professional video crews and "more than 42 kitchens or bake shops."

Shows like No Reservations on Travel Channel, The Today Show and The Next Iron Chef have all filmed on location and explored the cooking aspect of the CIA. Ghost Hunters has also filmed at The Culinary in Hyde Park as part of a paranormal investigation.

And of course, there's the mention of the Hyde Park location in the suspense/thriller movie The Menu. Warning there was a lot of blood and s'mores involved in that one.

Hyde Park, NY is located in Dutchess County, NY. It is the home to several prominent figures that played a role in how the world was once formed. Even though these members of society have passed on, their stories and legacies continue in our area.

I have had the chance to visit these historical sites and will always remember what each one meant to me, what I learned on the tours and how guests can continue to visit in 2023.
