Pack your knives and go straight to the bookstore. Top Chef presents the official companion cookbook to Bravo's hit show!

Featuring 100 fabulous recipes from the first three seasons of the show, including dishes from the Elimination Rounds and the Quick-Fire Challenges, both authentic ones from the chefs and some that have been modified for easier home use. In-depth discussions with contestants, judges, and crew reveal the inner workings of the show, and lavish photographs take readers behind-the-scenes into the Top Chef pantry and the competition sites.

Top Chef: The Cookbook invites fans into the hottest kitchen on prime time to find out the dish on where the constestants are now, how the challenges are chosen, and what culinary knowledge the contestants can share to help readers become Top Chefs.

Handsomely packaged with a canvas cover inspired by the chef's jacket worn by each of the Top Chef contestants, this cookbook will have aspiring culinary contenders reliving classic show moments and relishing new recipes just in time to obsess over who's not in the kitchen in season 4. For chefs, foodies, and reality junkies alike, Top Chef: The Cookbook is the must-have compliment to the No. 1 rated food show on cable television.
