The latest season of Top Chef will be coming to television sooner than you think. The top-rated culinary show on Bravo has already started production of its 18th season in Portland, Oregon. Padma Lakshmi will be returning as host along with Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons as judges.
This season, the participants will be battling for the cash prize while exploring some of the best sites that Oregon has to offer – the Hood River Fruit Loop, Tillamook Bay and Willamette Valley wine country, among many others.
Top Chef is making a change in its evaluation process this season. For the first time, there will be a rotating panel of judges along with Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons. This panel will be comprised of Top Chef All-Stars winners, finalists and fan-favorites like Tiffany Derry and Melissa King.
What do you think? Will the change in the judges’ table bring something new to the show?
