The Top Chef Season 14 judges' table is going to include a new face. Graham Elliot will join host Padma Lakshmi, head judge Tom Colicchio, and judges Gail Simmons and Richard Blais in helping to decide who will be the next Top Chef.
Graham will appear as a rotating judge next season, which is set against the previously announced charming backdrop of Charleston, South Carolina. He will appear throughout the season to taste and critique the Cheftestants' creations and help decide who moves on to the next round and who has to pack their knives and go.
Graham is of course beloved by foodies the world over as an acclaimed chef, restaurateur, and cookbook author. His restaurant Graham Elliot Bistro opened in June 2012 in Chicago's West Loop. He also served as co-host and judge of Masterchef and Masterchef Junior and competed as a contestant on Iron Chef America and two seasons of Top Chef Masters.
We can't wait to see what Graham serves up as judge on Top Chef. Until then, relive this magical judges' moment from Season 13 of Top Chef, below.
