He's one of the strongest classically trained chefs and he's got experience as a pastry chef. Maybe that will help carry him through the competition.
Here is short interview with Hubert discussing the Top Chef Masters experience. Mild spoilerage about the challenges, but he doesn't give away who won. His story about never shopping at grocery stores was hilarious. It's hard for me to imagine that type of lifestyle.
