Padma, Tom, Gail, Emeril, Hugh -- and a marching band -- shoot Season 11 in New Orleans.

on Jul 16, 2013 - The Dish

The Top Chef judges and cheftstestants have always marched to the beat of their own drummers, but they've taken it to a new level shooting Season 11 in New Orleans. While the premiere date of Top Chef Season 11 has yet be revealed, the judges have obviously taken advantage of their time in The Big Easy, sharing photos of everything from the scenery to -- what else -- the food! You can peruse the judges' snapshots HERE.

Well, the judges weren't the only ones with cameras. While shooting promos for the new season, the judges dance to the beats of their own Mardi Gras marching band in the streets of New Orleans Martha & the Vandellas-style. Emeril's twirling Gail, Padma's shaking her groove thang, and, well, Tom and Hugh are trying. Ha!

And we caught the whole thing to blackmail them to show you! So, if you can't wait till the new season to get your dose of our your favorite judges, take a look at our exclusive behind-the-scenes photos.


And tell us: which judge would you most like to bust a move with in New Orleans?
