Top Chef Amateurs

About the Show

Talented home cooks are given the opportunity of a lifetime to test their skills in the illustrious Top Chef kitchen. In each 30-minute episode, two amateur chefs will compete head-to-head in some of the most iconic challenges from the Top Chef archives, including the mise en place race, blind taste test and even trying to break the curse of Top Chef’s most dreaded dish - risotto. Putting their kitchen skills to the test are a wide variety of amateur chefs ranging from an ex-CIA agent to a dental hygienist-turned-food-blogger to an architect. The amateur chefs will be paired with different Top Chef finalists, frontrunners and fan-favorites who will cook alongside them and help the amateurs battle against the clock.
