After much thought and discussion with my smart half, I will not be appearing on The Taste. The commitment will not work with my schedule.— Chef Keith (@CulinerdyK) August 11, 2014
Despite publicly musing that competing on ABC's The Taste might be in his future, Chef Keith Breedlove tweets that he won't be participating in Season 3 of the cooking reality show.
But for fans of Chef Breedlove's, he's set to appear on Food Network's Cutthroat Kitchen on Dec. 7 and Guy's Grocery Games in October. Chef Breedlove will be (at least) the second Sacramento chef on Cutthroat Kitchen, with Kru's Billy Ngo appearing in Feb. 2014.

Counter Culture: Anatolian Table Turkish Bistro - “Do you know anything about Turkish cuisine?” I asked lunch pal Bruce Parks as we stood in front of Anatolian Table Turkish Bistro on K Street. “Not really,” he said. “Is it Mediterranean?” “That’s my guess, too, but let’s find out,” I said.
