Top Chef Redux

Eater has the scoop on a Top Chef spin-off. Sounds pretty cool.

Yes please! I'm so addicted to Top Chef, Iron Chef, Iron Chef America, American Gladiators, and who knows what else. No doubt I'll be watching. It does sound amazing.

I'd watch it.

At least Top Chef gets some excellent chefs on to compete, unlike Hell's Kitchen. I love Gordon Ramsey, but the chefs they get on that show are pathetic.

Hey now! HELLS KITCHEN had some wonderful chef's! What's her name again (who won)? I can't remember. I really liked her, and I was pleased that she won. She's talented, young (lots of years left in her), she's excited, she's got drive but sincerity....she was an excellent choice. I love cooking and baking, perhaps that's why I love these shows so much.Obviously.

Adaora, I'll agree that the last three were very good. But the rest of them, especially when compared to the quality of chefs on Top Chef, wasn't that great.

I didn't notice it as much in previous seasons, but this year it seemed to be more obvious. Not that it kept me from watching. ;)

by the way, JL, RAMEN is wrong spelling in English, it should be LAMEN, see rameniac.org

I am lobbying US eateries to change spelling to correct Chinese word of LAMEN, Japanese goofed with the R sound because they do not know how to transliterate the L sound. But really it's LAMEN, not RAMEN. See TOKYO LAMEN in NYC.
