The third season of Top Chef Masters premieres tonight, with some changes: fewer cheftestapants, new host Curtis Stone and former-Gourmet editor Ruth Reichl's debut as judge. According to the New York Times all the changes make the show a little less nice than previous seasons and add a little more "backbiting and second-guessing." Just like regular Top Chef!
Do keep along! We have the pleasure of announcing that New York City chef and blogger Eddie Huang (Baohaus) will be recapping Top Chef Masters for Eater. Hold on to your hats, folks!
In addition, tonight is the reunion episode of Top Chef All-Stars. Everyone's going to pick on Jamie, and Elia and Tom Colicchio are going to have it out. So something to look forward to!
Here are the previews for both shows:
