    Bravo (ended 2013)
    Top Chef Masters is the first of the Top Chef spin-offs. The series is produced by the Emmy Award-winning Magical Elves with Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz who serve as executive producers.

    Season Four: The show relocates to Las Vegas, and the challenges will no doubt reflect the glitzy new atmosphere. Twelve chefs, some repeaters from seasons one and two, compete for cash prizes that will be donated to their selected charities. Each round has $15,000 up for grabs from Quickfire and Elimination challenges. The chefs compete singly or in teams for a spot in the final and a shot at the $100,000 grand prize with its Top Chef Master title. Season Three: Season three hits the grill with a sizzle and some major changes. The competition has been retooled so that it is closer to the mother ship in format, has a smaller group of chefs and the resident critics have been pared down to two. What has not changed are the chefs at the top of their games, unique challenges, and a star-studded guest critic list. 12 master chefs compete in Quickfire and Elimination challenges as each one vies for the title of Top Chef Master and $100,000 for his or her charity. This season's challenges will use some of the Top Chef favorites, only with master twists to match these chefs' superior skills. Curtis Stone joins as host, and food critic and author Ruth Reichl begins her tour as judge with James Oseland, who returns from seasons one and two. A Magical Elves production.

    Season Two: Season two has arrived, and not content to sit on their laurels, Magical Elves has cooked up new Challenges, Quickfires and intense pressures for the chefs, as well as allowed some familiar faces back into the kitchen. This time around there are only 22 chefs, and the heats will play out over four weeks, instead of six. The two chefs with the highest star scores from each heat will move to the six-week champions round from which the Top Chef Master will be named. Kelly Choi continues her duties as host. Gail Simmons joins the judges' panel full time; her skills burnishing an already stellar group comprising food critic Jay Rayner, culinary expert James Oseland and restaurant critic Gael Greene.

    Season One: Twenty-four master chefs at the pinnacle of their professions play for $100,000 awarded to the winner's favorite charity, and the title of Top Chef Master. Let the judges be judged. The first of Magical Elves' Top Chef franchise shows hits the airwaves this summer, and while it may seem very similar to the original, the differences will test these executive chefs in very different ways. During the first six weeks of competition, groups of four will vie in heats with the winner moving forward to the four week champions round. Each night has two parts, an amped twist on a previous Top Chef Quickfire challenge that measures basic skill sets, and then an elimination that tests ingenuity and creativity as the chefs attempt to please both the diners and judges in order to progress to the finals. Kelly Choi hosts this competition tailor-made for foodies with a panel of respected judges, and guest stars that range from the real thing to personalities from Bravo's other reality series including Top Chef judges and contestants.moreless

    Channel 4 renewed the show for a fifth season, which reverted back to the daily format. It started airing on August 25 2008, at the new time of 5:30pm.

    Season 5's primetime episodes began broadcasing in high definition.

    Channel 4
    This UK series is all about food. Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay shows his softer side at his London restaurant, The F Word, from which the show has taken its name. In case you have been wandering the F stands for Food of course. Each season has its own theme.

    Season one is centred on Ramsay preparing a three-course meal at the F Word restaurant for 60 invited diners. He has adapted some of his restaurant recipes so that everything that he cooks on the show can be cooked by anyone. The Times' restaurant critic Giles Coren acts as a field correspondent. Food writer Rachel Cooke also provides several reports on healthy eating. Two (or three) commis "battle" each other in every episode to earn a position at one of Ramsay's restaurants. 12 commis chefs appeared in the series out of a thousand applicants. Furthermore this season has turkeys as the featured animal that Gordon raised in his back yard, for food, so that his children gained a better understanding of where their food came from.This season also features Gordon's "Get Women Back in the Kitchen" campaign, for the promotion of which he visited several English households to help women who wanted to improve their culinary skills. A pudding (dessert) challenge, usually between Ramsay and a celebrity guest is also featured, the winner of which had the honour of serving his or her pudding to the guests at the F-Word restaurant.

    From the second series onwards the restaurant sits 50 paying guests served by a different brigade. The brigades featured in season two are amateur brigades. If guests found any of their food unsatisfactory, they could choose not to pay for that item. Janet Street-Porter became the series' field correspondent instead of Giles Coren who only appeared as a guest star. Pigs are the seasons featured animals raised once again By Gordon and his family in his back yard. The recipe challenge in this season includes any kind of food instead of pudding only. This series empha on the importance of Sunday lunch. Due to a schedule change bad language is not beeped out from this season onward.
