You might not get a new episode of Glee this week — the show is still on its monthlong post-Cory Monteith tribute hiatus until November 7 — but Lea Michele (Rachel) has still found a way to grace your TV screen.

The Glee star is the guest of honor on tonight’s episode of Bravo’s Top Chef. For the reality cooking competition’s October 30 episode, contestants will be tasked with creating the perfect menu for Lea’s Halloween party.

We’ve already seen photos from the episode, and Bravo has a couple of preview clips, as well. In one clip, host Padma Lakshmi introduces Lea to the Top Chef contestants.

“It’s such a dream to be here, so I can’t wait to eat all your amazing food,” Lea gushes, moments after Padma refers to her as a “Top Chef superfan.”

Later, we get a look at the final party, where Lea — dressed up in an adorable black cat costume — gives a big hug to Andy Cohen, who we know from following her on Twitter that she positively adores.

“Now tell me this,” he asks her. “If Top Chef did, like, a musical episode, what would be the big finale number?” Lea laughs. “It would be, like, ‘Hungry Like the Wolf.’”

Somebody call Darren Criss. We have to make this happen!

Lea Michele’s episode of Top Chef airs tonight: Wednesday, October 30 at 10/9c on Bravo.
