Denver’s dining scene has exploded in the last decade and has become one of the best in the country–and it is about to get some massive additional exposure with the newest season of Top Chef premiering on Dec. 7th.  Filmed here in Denver, Boulder, Aspen, and Telluride, Colorado, this season, the show’s 15th, will be bringing great publicity to the state and further enhancing our reputation as one of the best places to eat in the country.  The show features two Colorado chefs (Carrie Baird, executive chef at Bar Dough in Denver and Brother Luck, chef/owner of Four by Brother Luck in Colorado Springs) as competitors, and many well-known local chefs and restaurateurs make guest appearances.  The cast lived in Capitol Hill during the filming of the show.

See below for a description of the season from Bravo, and tune in on Dec. 7th for the season premier!

“Bravo Media’s Top Chef embarks on an epic culinary adventure through the state of Colorado for season 15. The Emmy and James Beard Award-winning series will follow 15 diverse chefs from across the country as they battle it out for the coveted title amid the breathtaking landscapes and thriving culinary scenes in Denver, Boulder, Telluride and Aspen. Host Padma Lakshmi, head judge Tom Colicchio return to the judges table alongside Gail Simmons and Graham Elliot.

This season, the competition reaches new heights as the chefs battle it out on an epicurean road trip through Colorado, traveling to Denver, Boulder, Telluride and Aspen. From deconstructing the Denver Omelet and preparing Rocky Mountain Oysters to tailgating with the Broncos, the level of competition for these 15 chefs is going to be a mile high. With the judges looking for the chefs’ peak performances, the challenges will test the competitors’ culinary abilities in picturesque locales including a food festival in Larimer Square, a blizzard infused campfire cook-off, and cauldron cooking at the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen. In addition, social media star Logan Paul heads to Boulder and Olympians Gus Kenworthy, Meryl Davis and John Daly will challenge the chefs in an all-around culinary competition focusing on speed, precision and presentation…

Throughout the season, the chefs will be tasked with serving up food for culinary stars including: Curtis Stone (Head Judge on Top Chef Jr.), Naomi Pomeroy, Richard Blais (Top Chef: All-Stars Winner), John Besh, Bruce and Eric Bromberg, David Kinch, Adam Perry Lang, Johnny Iuzzini, Wylie Dufresne, Paul Liebrandt, Michael Voltaggio (Top Chef Season Six Winner), Bryan Voltaggio, Chris Cosentino and Nilou Motamed. Also lending their expertise are local Colorado greats Troy Guard, Alex Seidel, Hosea Rosenberg (Top Chef Season Five Winner), Lachlan MacKinnon-Patterson, Keegan Gerhard, Jen Jasinski (Top Chef Masters  Finalist) and Frank Bonanno.”
