Top Chef's tenth season returns with a commitment to the basics, a new judge, and summer in one of the Pacific Northwest's most foodie cities.

Top Chef: Seattle debuts with 21 chefs in contention for the title and a qualifying round that will winnow them down to just fifteen. Back-to-basics challenges prioritize core skill set expertise–skills many may have let slip as they advanced professionally. With a new batch of contestants at the top of their game and exciting celebrity diners and guest judges, summer in autumn has never tasted so good.

Padma Lakshmi continues as host, along with returning head judge Tom Colicchio and judges Gail Simmons, Emeril Lagasse and Hugh Acheson. Wolfgang Puck joins this season's production as a new regular judge. The Top Chef title includes a feature in Food & Wine magazine, the opportunity for the winner to showcase his or her skills at the Food & Wine c in Aspen, Colorado, and $125,000 to help turn the winner's culinary dreams into reality. Top Chef is produced by Magical Elves Productions, whose Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz serve as executive producers.
