NEW YORK � June 8, 2009 � In the premiere episode of "Top Chef Masters," airing Wednesday, June 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Hubert Keller (Fleur de Lys), Christopher Lee (Aureole), Michael Schlow (Radius Restaurant), and Tim Love (The Lonesome Dove Western Bistro) are the first four chefs to draw knives and kick off a whole new level of culinary competition. The Master chefs are tasked with cooking dessert for a tough crowd of judges, Girl Scouts, and in the elimination challenge the acclaimed chefs must cook a three course meal in a college dorm room.
"Top Chef Masters," the spin-off series of the Emmy and James Beard Award-winning No. 1 food show on cable, "Top Chef," flips the judges' table to find out who can handle the heat. "Top Chef Masters" will pit 24 world-renowned chefs against each other to win $100,000 for the charity of their choice. Each episode will re-create a classic "Top Chef" quickfire challenge � the first being to create the most creative and delicious dessert they can (as seen on season four). At the end, one chef moves on to the Champions Round. For an early look at the premiere, go to: http://www.bravotv.com/top-chef-masters/videos/the-dreaded-dessert.
