Sneak Peek at Top Chef’s Current Season
To date, Top Chef season six winner Michael Voltaggio returns to the reality cooking series for an elimination challenge with the remaining seven cheftestants. But before that, they will take part in a blindfold taste experiment.
For the challenge, chefs must take inspiration from their childhood memories. The dishes they create will be part of the MUSC Children’s Hospital Fund Charity Gala to be held at Kiawah Island. In addition to impressing Voltaggio, they also have to get the approval of the 100 guests attending the event.
