NEW YORK - September 1, 2010 - The 2010 Emmy Award-winning Bravo has whipped up partnerships with Breyers, Dawn, Extra Dessert Delights Gum and Godiva as official sponsors for the premiere season of "Top Chef Just Desserts," the spin-off series of the Emmy and James Beard Award-winning show "Top Chef," which will debut Wednesday, September 15 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.

"We have a proven record of highest commercial and brand recall in television driven by the quality of our shows and program engagement."

Elements of the sponsorships and integrations surrounding "Top Chef Just Desserts" include:

Breyers joins the "Top Chef" team as a fully integrated sponsor and official ice cream partner of the series, sponsoring an on-air Quickfire challenge and a custom vignette series highlighting natural ingredients used by the chef'testants.

Filled with delicious twists, turns and drama unlike anything that "Top Chef" has seen, "Top Chef Just Desserts" features highly celebrated chefs in the pastry world ranging from "Mr. Chocolate" himself, Jacques Torres; the "Leonardo Da Vinci of cakes," Sylvia Weinstock to Wolfgang Puck's famed Spago pastry chef, Sherry Yard and Eric Ripert's Le Bernardin pastry chef Michael Laiskonis, among others.

The series offers a fascinating window into the competitive, pressure-filled environment of pastry chefs at the highest level. Each episode holds two challenges for the pastry chefs: the first, a quickfire test of their basic abilities and the elimination challenge designed to test the versatility and inventiveness of the pastry chefs. These chefs will prove that a little sugar and spice never tasted so nice.
