Top Chef Masters begins June 10th
Top Chef is coming back this summer–with a twist!
Top Chef Masters will pit 24 world-renowned chefs against each other and see how well they fare in the tried and true format of Top Chef. In each episode, money will be at stake for the chefs, with the winners of eliminations being awarded cash donations for their charities. The first six episodes will consist of four chefs competing against each other to name one winner. The six winners of each episode will then meet up for the final four weeks when one person will get eliminated each episode until the finale where one winner is crowned Top Chef Master. The winning chef will receive $100,000 for the charity of their choice.
This looks to be a pretty great spin on the Top Chef formula, and it’s kind of fun to see several previous guest judges on the list of competitors. There are some pretty big names there. I love to see what the culinary world’s newbies can come up with on Top Chef, so I think watching these proven, fantastic, respected chefs compete should be very interesting. And after last season’s uninspired bunch of cheftestants, I think it will be good for the Top Chef franchise to showcase some truly amazing food for a change.
