Who are the judges for Season 19 of Top Chef?
Padma Lakshmi will host and judge the show again. She’ll be joined by Tom Colicchio, the chief judge, and Gail Simmons. The show will include an “exclusive rotating judging and dining panel” made up of solely Top Chef alumni, as it did last season.
What celebrity chefs will feature in Top Chef season 19?
Top Chef: Houston will feature a variety of pop-in visits from prominent chefs in addition to the alumni panel. Daniel Boulud, Wylie Dufresne, Carlotta Flores, Bricia Lopez, Eric Ripert, Marcus Samuelsson, and Alexander Smalls are among the chefs on the list. For the final task, Hunter Lewis, Editor-in-Chief of Food and Wine Magazine, joins the judges.
What challenges can we expect in Top Chef season 19?
“The chefs will utilise their experience to take on renowned regional dishes, all while being immersed in the ethnic mix that defines the city’s gastronomic identity,” according to Bravo. Because Houston has the country’s largest Nigerian population, the cooks will be put to the test in a Quickfire featuring Nigerian cuisine. They’ll also face off in an elimination challenge in which they’ll have to serve Houstonians at an Asian Night Market inspired by the city’s major Asian groups. They’ll also be expected to put their own touch on iconic Tex-Mex dishes like BBQ, biscuits, queso, and the fajita, which was made famous by Houston.
“The chefs will also be tasked with creating space-friendly delicacies for previous astronauts, as well as accompanying Tom on an epic fishing trip to the Gulf.” The Padma puts the cooks to the test by emulating Top Chef France’s most difficult task, which requires them to produce two meals that look identical but taste entirely different. Restaurant Wars, Top Chef’s trademark task, comes returning with an open kitchen concept in which the chefs must prepare food for a large dining room as well as an exclusive tasting table for the judges. Season 19 is one for the record books, with tributes to the state’s female trailblazers and a block party fundraising to save Freedmen’s town.”
