Gail Simmons and Curtis Stone for Top Chef Masters 2013

Top Chef Masters returns to Bravo on July 24th and we can't wait. Thirteen chefs will compete this season, including Brian Voltaggio, who is the first Top Chef contestant asked to be on Top Chef Masters. Gail Simmons is head judge. Curtis Stone, James Oseland, Ruth Reichl, and Francis Lam all return as judges. A new judge is The Los Angeles Times' Lesley Suter. This season is based in L.A. Guest celebrity judges include Mindy Kaling, Busy Philipps, Kathie Lee Gifford, Lindsay Price, and Ali Larter. This season has a new twist. The chef's sous-chefs will also be competing. That competition has already begun online. It sounds confusing, but definitely worth watching. Here's a preview:
