Gail Simmons of Food & Wine magazine is one of the tastemakers who will be judging wannabe celebrity chefs for Top Chef, an upcoming reality series on Bravo TV.
The show isnt a one-off food challenge like Iron Chef. She says its really about discovering talent. We want really hungry chefs.
Though there might be comparisons to shows like Iron Chef or Hells Kitchen, Simmons says Top Chef is different because its authentic to what it takes to work in a restaurant.
Simmons says the show will not only give couch potatoes a taste of what its like to be a real chef but also what separates the cooks from the schnooks.
As she puts it, The good chefs stay true and loyal to their ingredients.
Top Chef debuts March 8, right after the Project Runway season finale.
