‘Top Chef’ is Coming to Colorado

Host Padma Lakshmi will make her return on the show, along with judges Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons, and Graham Elliot

Top Chef, one of the most popular food shows on television, recently closed its 14th season with Brooke Williamson winning the title of “Top Chef.” The Bravo Media show is already planning for the next season, and announced that it is switching up the scenery and taking the show to Colorado.

“We are always on the hunt for the next great culinary destination and Colorado is fast becoming a hot spot for young chefs and foodies, making it an ideal backdrop for our upcoming season,” Shari Levine, executive vice president of current production at Bravo Media, said in a statement. “Our new cheftestants will have an abundance of inspiration to pull from as they cook amid the awe-inspiring scenery and explore the bourgeoning culinary scenes from cities to mountain resorts.”

According to Cathy Ritter, director of the Colorado Tourism Office, the show’s presence in the state will allow Top Chef viewers a chance to see the “beauty, hospitality, and vibrancy” of up and coming culinary hot spots in Colorado.
