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.
