All Top Chef All the Time

We're a few episodes into season 2 of Bravo's Top Chef, and if you haven't gotten started yet, you still have time! While Bravo airs new episodes every Weds night at 10:00 p.m., they also have been airing previous episodes marathon style lately giving some of us a chance to catch up. The show takes 15 talented, young chefs and puts them through a series of challenges and elminations judged by chef and educator Tom Colicchio (Craft), Food and Wine's Gail Simmons, and various guest judges such as Ming Tsai (Blue Ginger), Michael Midgely, and even Anthony Bourdain. Chefs go from working in teams early on to creating full multi-course tasting menus later in the show.

If you need to schedule your viewing, you can celebrate Thanksgiving with a full marathon of the first six episodes starting Thursday at 4:00 p.m.

If you're already a fan, you can keep up with behind the scenes comments (especially on some of the recent goings-on on the show) with blogs from several folks involved with the show including judges Colicchio, Simmons and last season's winner and executive chef of the soon-to-open Perilla in New York, Harold Dieterle.
