Maybe the fourth time will be the charm for Philadelphia chef Jennifer Carroll, who will be one of 15 chef-testants on the next season of Bravo’s Top Chef All-Stars.
Carroll, the Northeast Philly native and Mount Saint Joseph Academy alumna who with fiancé Billy Carroll owns Spice Finch restaurant in Center City, was a finalist on Top Chef Season 6 in Las Vegas, and competed on Season 8: All Stars, Top Chef Duels, and on Season 15 in Colorado through Top Chef: Last Chance Kitchen.
That’s a lot of TV. What do you know now that you didn’t know then? I asked Carroll.
“I look at things in a positive way instead of seeing any negatives,” she told me. “The fact that I haven’t won hasn’t discouraged me from going after my dream.” She said she considers it an honor to have been asked again.
Of course, Carroll is sworn to secrecy about the outcome.
