Top Chef Season 7 Wins Emmy For Best Reality TV Show

Congratulations to Top Chef for taking out the Best Reality TV Show Emmy. This was quite a coup as The Amazing Race has won it since the award commenced.

For those who don’t know Top Chef it is a quality TV show on Arena TV which comes from the Bravo stable in New York. Up and coming chefs fight it out over three months to see who will become the Top Chef.

There is great cooking, great challenges a lot of which we are seeing on our own Masterchef Australia, and enough interaction and personalities of the contestants to keep it entertaining.

The host is the luscious Padma Lakshmi who has no problem being seen to eat food on TV and give a forthright opinion on it. Also the other co-host is the spunky Tom Collichio a renowned chef in the US. Other judges are Gail Simmons from Food and Wine Magazine, Eric Ripert an uber-chef as well as other guest judges who are leaders in their fields.

The new season set in Washington DC commences on Arena TV 7.30pm the 12 September, if you have pay TV watch it.

However it is time for a free to air channel to get the episodes or even do an Australian version of the show.

I love love top chef! But there seems to be almost no point to doing one in Australia since we are inundated with cooking shows at the moment… plus Masterchef has taken so much of their challenge ideas from TopChef…

We need a Padma Lakshmi of Australia.

Akris – We sooo need a Padma Lakshmi of Australia. I am sure there are some undiscovered people out there who would fit the bill.

Probably Iron Chef, and Top Chef on at the same time might be crowding the cooking show schedule a bit much

A free Padma Lakshmi for every Aussie bloke!
That’d be a winning election promise.
