Top Chef Las Vegas

Top Chef Masters was like a teasing little appetizer. We did have The next Food Network Star at the beginning of summer but it hardly sated our summer cook-show cravings. Thank goodness Bravo is getting ready to serve its main course.

Top Chef: Las Vegas is set to kick off on Aug. 26. This is taking place in one of my favorite City's Las Vegas !!!!!!! Hello

More importantly, each plate episode will have some pretty impressive garnish. Natalie Portman, Penn & Teller, Wolfgang Puck, Todd English, Daniel Boulud, Tyler Florence, Laurent Tourondel and Nigella Lawson are among the guests making an appearance on the sixth season of the foodie hit.

Cookbook author Padma Lakshmi returns to host, as does head judge and Craft restaurant king Tom Colicchio, Food & Wine magazine's Gail Simmons and food critic Toby Young.

Now, for what's at stake.......

This season starts with 17 chef-testants competing for the title of Top Chef, $100,000 from Glad, $100,000 of merchandise from Macy's, a feature in Food & Wine magazine and a showcase at the Annual Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, Colo. Which someday i hope to attend.:)
