Last week, it was announced that HGTV will be filming a hit show in the Denver area, and now Bravo TV has jumped aboard the Colorado train too. The network has decided that the Centennial state will play host to Season 15 of the popular reality cooking competition, Top Chef.

On the show, cheftestants compete in a variety of culinary challenges and face weekly eliminations from a panel of judges. Typically, the host state inspires the themes throughout that particular season. Besides being a hot spot for up and coming chefs, the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and overall hospitality of people in Colorado are just some of the reasons that make our state such an ideal destination for filming this series. Producers at Bravo reported that the challenges for Season 15 will be set at different locations around Denver, Boulder, Telluride and other Colorado destinations that are known for their thriving culinary scenes. Maybe they will even come to Fort Collins for an episode?

Padma Lakshmi will be returning to host Season 15, alongside judges Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons, and Graham Elliot. Top Chef hasn’t yet to announce a premiere date for Season 15.
