Many of us here are fans of the show---it all began in San Francisco, after all � and more than that, we are admirers of Bravo's creative approach to entertainment," said Mikyla Bruder, Publishing Director, Chronicle Books.

With an introduction written by lead judge Tom Colicchio, the book features in-depth discussions with contestants, judges and crew that reveal the inner workings of the series � answering questions like who creates the challenges, who came up with the "Pack your knives and go" tagline and 'where are they now?' Extensively photographed, readers will get a satisfying look into the "Top Chef" pantry (as well as what to stock in their own kitchen), see close-ups of competition sites and relive a variety of classic show moments.
