Description: Top Chef brought the excitement of competitive cooking to TV, and now, finally, the official companion cookbook invites you into the hottest kitchen on prime time. Featuring more than 100 recipes and tips pulled right from the episodes, along with tons of behind-the-scenes photos and discussions with producers, judges, and your favorite contestants, this book is your guide to the fun, the feuds, and the food of Top Chef. 

Exclusive interviews trace the show's evolution from the early days of Season 1 to the Season 3 Aspen finale, from Lee Anne Wong's domination of the first-ever Quickfire to Hung Huynh's final, stunning sous-vide duck.
