Season 20 of Top Chefis is set to feature the greatest competitors from different Top Chef iterations as they face off in a culinary competition unlike any other. Can someone say, chefs kiss?
Padma Lakshmi will host this year's World All-Stars season in London, as well as head judge Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons. They will be joined by judges from the international teams as well as international culinary experts.
As they battle for the ultimate trophy, 16 of the most talented, creative, and decorative chefs will compete in over 29 international versions of the show. However, the stakes for competitors will be higher than ever as they navigate worldwide inspired quickfire and elimination challenges.
Ryan Flynn, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming's senior vice president of current production, said via a release released to Decider.
Victoria Prentis, the UK's food minister, said, "I'm glad that Top Chef has chosen London for its first-ever season outside of the United States. We're rightly proud of the exceptional food and beverage produced here in the United Kingdom."
Prentis continued to describe the London cuisine, saying, "From Scottish salmon andWelsh lamb toNorthern Irish beef and English sparkling wine," our food and beverage is well-known at home and abroad for its outstanding taste and high quality.
Top Chef Season 19 was nominated for six Emmy Awards, and Season 20 is the first time the original series will run an entire season abroad. Previously, global versions of Top Chef have been shown in Canada, the Middle East, Brazil, and France.
Season 20 production for the show will begin this month, and is scheduled to begin in 2023, despite there being no official premiere date.
