Top Chef (Bravo)


Competition Reality

Aspiring chefs compete for their shot at culinary stardom.

Matt Roush Says...

How can you tell that TV’s most enjoyable food competition is cooking up a storm during a pandemic? The contestants are no longer shopping for ingredients in person, and like so many of us during the lockdown, they’re ordering online and picking up their essentials at the curb. Otherwise, it’s business as usual as Top Chef relocates to Portland, Oregon for its 18th season, with fun challenges including a collaborative team Quickfire and a blind-tasting Elimination Challenge involving different kinds of fish—including the dreaded chukar (or partridge). In another twist, a rotating group of former Top Chef all-stars joins the judging and dining panels. One thing hasn’t changed: You don’t want head judge Tom Colicchio calling your dish “a bowl full of pain.”
