TC Masters in the Media
Posted Jun 9, 2009 @ 5:47 PM
Each of the first six episodes will feature a different group of four chefs who have already made an impact in the culinary world. From those four, one will be sent along to the finals, which will consist of six chefs, all of whom are playing for charity.
It sounds like a "one and done" scenario. We won't have time to associate names and faces for most of the chefs.

It would be great seeing Rick Moonen and Jonathan Waxman compete again.
I agree, especially Moonen. If he had just plated his QF on time, I think he would have easily won his round.

Bowles and Dufresne were fun on the first time around, though I doubt they'll be paired again. Mark Peel I'd like to see more of, but I've seen enough of Ludo. Don't mind the repeats in general, since these really are top chefs and it seems a shame that the first round exits were there for such a short amount of time. And if this is going to be a franchise that will be around a while, why limit the pool that severely? Now if a finalist had been cast again, that'd be a different story.
Armstrong, Burke, Susur Lee, Tramanto, and Marcus Samuelsson have all been on Iron Chef America, all losses, I think. Samuelsson has the distinction of competing in the short lived "Iron Chef USA" precursor to "Iron Chef America" as well. Feniger is one of the Two Hot Tamales, if I remember right, and tied Flay in the infamous turkey episode. (Turkey sorbet! Yum.)

Lots of repeats
But not my favorite one -- John Besh. I'm looking forward to Mark Peel & Rick Moonen again, as well as Susan Feniger, Rick Tramonto and Marcus Samuelsson.

I was really hoping a second season would bring Gavin Kaysen to the mix. Then I can just turn the volume down completely to watch all the re-airs of his episode (s) and enjoy the eye candy with pretty food.
I'm actually more excited about this than the regular season. So glad Kelly is coming back.
Is the same judging panel coming back? I certainly hope so.

Is there a premiere date yet? I thought I had seen one, but I guess I was mistaken.
Bravo website says April 7, 2010.

If I learned anything from last year, is that I can't tell a darn thing about these people just by reading. I know they are all talented, but I'll need to see them actually on my TV before I can decide which ones I end up liking. (For example, Yay! Mark Peel! )

Wish they cut the chefs more gradually like in TC Jr, but no way these guys could commit that level of time.
