For the 13th season, Bravo Media’s Emmy and James Beard Award-winning series “Top Chef” gets lucky in Las Vegas as the remaining chefs travel to the culinary capital for the two-part season finale airing Thursday, March 10 and 17 at 9pm ET/PT. It’s anyone’s game as the three finalists are joined by the reigning champion of “Last Chance Kitchen” to battle it out in high stakes challenges for the coveted title of “Top Chef.” The winner receives $125,000 furnished by San Pellegrino, a feature in FOOD & WINE magazine and a showcase at the annual FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen.
Tune in Thursday, February 18 at 9pm ET/PT for “Hammer Time,” when the Chefs channel their inner rapper as they prepare a dish for Oakland native MC Hammer who must decide which funky fresh dishes are too legit to quit. Then, “Top Chef” Master Jonathan Waxman enlightens the Cheftestants with a history lesson, tasking them to go back in time and create a dish that evokes the culinary trends, style, ingredients and flavors of some of the most influential food eras in history.
Finale judges include: David Copperfield (Thursday, March 10), Emeril Lagasse, Dominique Crenn, Jonathan Beno, Charlie Palmer and Jean-Georges Vongerichten (Thursday, March 17).
