Basic information and summary
Top Chef is a long-running reality competition TV series broadcast on Bravo network. It is produced by the Emmy-award winning Magical Elves studio and was originally released on March 8, 2006. It is executive produced by Dan Cutforth and Jane Lisitz. The series is very popular and has had nine international adaptations, including ones in Indonesia, Vietnam, Chile, El Salvador, as well as several Arab and European countries, where it has continued its popularity rally.
During the course of the filming the competing chefs live in the host city in housing provided by the program and normally do not communicate with the outside world. The competition takes place in the currently trendy elimination format, where the audition-selected professional and amateur chefs from around the United States participate in a wide variety of culinary challenges. A panel of four professional chefs judges the dishes, and the poorest performer is dismissed from the show at the end of each episode. A sizable cash prize is awarded to the winner at the end of the season.
Critical acclaim and renewal
Top Chef has garnered many awards, and can boast the title of the #1 food competition series on cable for season 12.
