Top Chef Masters, Season 4


, Blogger: Orry's Orations
It's amazing how these reality shows end up offering celebrity or pro versions, but this is what viewers are wanting, so here we have another round of Top Chef Masters that will begin airing on Bravo July 25th. Actually, I rather enjoyed watching The Food Network's Chopped judges go at it recently. There is something nice about having the judges be judged. Wouldn't you love to do it to Simon Cowell, for example?

Anyway, per The Hollywood Reporter, here are the competitors:

Chris Cosentino – Chef/ Partner Incanto Restaurant, San Francisco; Competing for Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinsons Research
