CIA director takes a turn in 'Top Chef' limelight
Instead of cloak and dagger, it will be apron and knife.
The CIA takes it turn in the reality television spotlight next Wednesday when the agency's headquarters serves as backdrop for an episode of the Bravo television series, "Top Chef: D.C."
CIA Director Leon E. Panetta, whose parents operated a California restaurant, makes an appearance on the episode, which was filmed at Langley in May.
Panetta "dropped by to say some nice things about the CIA's own outstanding chef, Fred DeFilippo, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America -- the other CIA," according to an agency insider.
"The agency officers on hand, familiar with the cuisines of the world, had a chance to spot and assess some very good food. And the viewers of 'Top Chef' will have a chance to learn a bit about the CIA and the people who serve there."
No word on whether there were after-meal cigars.
