Top Chef is one of my favorite TV shows. Sure it bears little resemblance to what professional cooking is like, but it's so much fun to watch. Have you seen restaurant wars? Pure drama!
I much prefer it to watching Gordan Ramsey berate people, and unlike so many reality shows, these people have major talent. Granted I can't taste the results, but I like to think I can tell good food through the TV!
It's crazy that the show hasn't yet been in NYC, one of the greatest culinary cities in the world. Finally this season finds the cheftestants living in Brooklyn and cooking in Manhattan. Expect lots of visits from renowned NY chefs like Wylie Dufresne and Eric Ripert.
Bravo just released the names of the new chefs, and alas, there is nary an Atlanta chef in site.
Check out the details here!
The new season starts November 12 at 10pm EST. Can't wait!
