    Love Top Chef, I much prefer the cooking shows to the reality shows. Can’t wait to see what city it comes out of next

    Yes, one of the cooking contest shows I still watch.
    Sad that the Top Desserts has not returned, I would love to see a season of over the top multi day poured sugars and chocolates.
