Masters Get Schooled

Top Chef Masters, the spin-off series of the Emmy and James Beard Award-winning No. 1 food show on cable, Top Chef, flips the judges’ table to find out who can handle the heat. Top Chef Masters will pit 24 world-renowned chefs against each other to win $100,000 for the charity of their choice. Hubert Keller (Fleur de Lys), Christopher Lee (Aureole), Michael Schlow (Radius Restaurant), and Tim Love (The Lonesome Dove Western Bistro) are the first four chefs to draw knives and kick off a whole new level of culinary competition. Each episode will re-create a classic Top Chef Quickfire Challenge — the first being to create the most creative and delicious dessert they can (as seen on Season 4). At the end, one chef moves on to the Champions Round.
