First Lady Adds Top Chefs to North Texas Visit

From: NBC5

First lady Michelle Obama will head to North Texas this week for a one-two punch of events promoting healthy eating and exercise programs.

First, Mrs. Obama will head to a Fort Worth Olive Garden location for a round-table dinner on Thursday evening. Parents who are volunteering with Mrs. Obama's "Let's Move" initiative will participate in a discussion about healthy eating and exercise activities during the dinner.

Next, the first lady will head across town to a Dallas event at Nancy Moseley Elementary on Friday to celebrate the second anniversary of her "Let's Move" initiative to fight childhood obesity. She won't be alone, though.

Top Chef contestants (or Chef'testants for those who speak Bravo language) from this season and years past will join the first lady for the Friday event.

Top Chef All-Stars winner Richard Blais, fan favorite Fabio Viviani, all-stars Jenn Carroll and Spike Mendelsohn, plus season nine (Top Chef: Texas) chefs Grayson Schmitz and Ed Lee will compete in a healthy eating cook-off with students from the school.
