For the finale of this season’s Top Chef, they are having five chefs competing for the title. The lineup for this “all star” season was pretty impressive, but most of my all-time favorites were left missing. If I were to pick the five best chefs who didn’t win, from all the seasons, the group would look a lot different.
I would have picked: Kevin Gillespie – ginger beardie with lovable personality and comfort food awesomeness, Richard Blais – the wizard with the faux hawk and liquid nitrogen tank, Sam Talbot – tall and handsome with love for sweet and savory combinations, Bryan Voltaggio – the nicer and more professional of the brothers, Stefan Richter – everyone’s favorite carefree Euro. Now that would be a competition!
