Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the kitchen, Bravo’s
hit culinary competition series "Top Chef 3 Miami" kicks off with an
hour-long special "Top Chef: 4-Star All-Stars" on Wednesday, June 6 at
10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
"Top Chef: 4-Star All-Stars" reunites four of the finalists from season’s one and two – team one’s inaugural winner Harold Dieterle, Stephen Asprinio, Tiffani Faison, and Dave Martin compete against season two’s winner Ilan Hall, Fan Favorite Sam Talbot, Elia Aboumrad, and molecular gastronomist Marcel Vigneron in a $20,000 cook-off for charity. The cook-off concludes with the two teams serving their meals to "Top Chef 3 Miami’s" 15 new chefs. Watch what happens as the two teams go pot to pan under the watchful eyes of this season’s judges’ table – Padma Lakshmi, cookbook author, actress and host; Tom Colicchio, celebrated culinary figure and co-founder of Craft Restaurants; returning judge Gail Simmons of Food & Wine; and "Queer Eye’s" culinary expert Ted Allen.
Then, set your kitchen timers for the supersized premiere of "Top Chef 3 Miami" on Wednesday, June 13 at 10:00 – 11:15 p.m. ET/PT, as the latest crop of 15 of the country’s most impressive rising chefs hit beautiful Miami Beach – where the sun is hot and the competition hotter – in this third tropical season.
Magical Elves returns to produce "Top Chef 3 Miami." Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz, who also produced "Project Runway" and "Project Greenlight" for Bravo, return as executive producers. Shauna Minoprio also serves as executive producer.
