Sweet freaks and couch potatoes, rejoice: Top Chef Just Desserts is returning on August 24 at 10 p.m.
The show will once again be hosted and judged by Gail Simmons, Johnny Iuzzini, Hubert Keller, and Dannielle Kyrillos. Guest judges will include Cat Cora, Pichet Ong, François Payard, the cast of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz, Beastie Boy and apparent sugar fiend.
The 14 contestants will include Katie Guy-Hamilton, the executive pastry chef at New York Central at the Grand Hyatt New York, and Melissa Camacho, the pastry chef at ilili. For a preview of the show, go right on over to Bravo, where you can revel in the promise of histrionics and structurally unsound pastry.
