The hit series "Top Chef" is based in Washington, D.C. for season seven.  If you haven't watched the show before, you might want to tune in for an upcoming episode featuring Washington Nationals Adam Dunn, John Lannan and Matt Capps (now with the Minnesota Twins). Will they cook? Compete against each other? Lannan may have an edge? Whatever they

Nats fans have seen John Lannan cook previously at the ESPN Zone Cook-Off when he was partnered with Joel Hanranhan (now with Pittsburgh Pirates) and finished in second place, after Willie Harris, with their sea bass. 

I guess Bravo didn't realize that Willie Harris was the Nationals Top Chef!  A few of the Nationals competed in the first "cook-off" at ESPN Zone as part of the Winter Caravan in January 2009.

According to IMDB, episode 11 "National Concession" will air on Wednesday, August 25 at 10:00 p.m. on Bravo.

The plot summary: "The six remaining chefs take over two concession stands at Nationals Park in D.C., creating game snacks for the die-hard fans of the Washington Nationals major league baseball team. But ballparks aren't just serving hot dogs and peanuts any more, adding a variety of tasty and higher-end creations to the menu." (Written by Bravo Publicity
