Top Chef Masters: Hubert Keller

June 11th, 2009 - 10:05 pm ICT by GD  

Hubert Keller will be featured in the “Top Chef Masters”. The series is about to hit the television on June 10. However, Keller is having a role reversal in this show. He will not be featured as a judge; he is stepping in the shoes of a contestant. The show, “Top Chef Masters” will be bringing together 25 of the world’s most renowned faces in the culinary department. The master chefs will be competing against each other to win the show. The show is set to be aired on BRAVO.

Hubert Keller hails from Alsace, France. He is the owner and the head chef of “Burger Bar”, ” Sleek Steakhouse” and “Ultra Lounge”. The “Burger Bar” is a popular eatery in Las Vegas and St. Louis. His Sleek Steakhouse and Ultra Lounge at Lumiere are renowned steakhouses, with world-class menus to go hand in hand with the fantastic decor.

Keller had made appearances as guest judge on “Top Chefs” quite a number of times. Kelly Choi will be hosting the series. Judges get to eliminate contesting chefs in the Quickfire and the Elimination Challenge. The format of the Top Chef Masters appears to be quite similar to that of the Top Chef. However, other than having lesser-known contestants, it will also have celebrity chefs who have made appearances on Top Chef as judges, occasionally.

The other big names to join Keller on board are Rick Bayless from Frontera Grill in Chicago, Wylie Dufresne from wd- 50 in New York, Christopher Lee from Aureole in New York, Roy Yamaguchi from Hawaii and Michael Schlow.
