Get Ready for the Top Chef Holiday Special

Pack Your Knives and Ho-Ho-Holiday Special

Top Chef fans, set your TiVos! Next Thursday, Dec. 6, Bravo is airing the Top Chef Holiday Special where a handful of TC fan favorites prepare a holiday meal for our beloved judges.

The episode will feature Stephen Aspirinio and Tiffani Faison from Season One; Betty Fraser, Marcel Vigneron, and Josie Smith-Malave from Season Two; and Chris "CJ" Jacobson, Tre Wilcox, and Sandee Birdsong from Season Three. I understand how many of these folks are fan favorites, but I have to say, I'm a bit surprised by Sandee; maybe it was her fiesty ways in the Watch What Happens special?

No word on what the actual challenge is, but the episode will have the chefs going head-to-head knife-to-knife for a grand prize of $20,000. They'll be judged by the usual suspects — Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio, Ted Allen, and Gail Simmons — who will also have input from culinary heavyweights Alfred Portale (chef of Gotham Bar and Grill), Eric Ripert (executive chef of Le Bernardin), Alan Wong, Elizabeth Falkner (executive pastry chef and owner of Citizen Cake) and Norman Van Aken.

I don't know about you guys, but I've already got my TiVo set.

i LOVE top chef - and i can't wait to see how everyone does. i still think that tre should have made it to the end of season 3 - so maybe he'll get revenge?
