So did recently named new Bar Pastoral chef Chrissy Camba really leave Vincent in June to travel around Europe and gain culinary inspiration? It may have just been a ruse to cover her tracks since she was just announced as one of the contestants on the upcoming season of Top Chef.
Set in Seattle, Top Chef, now in its 10th season, will see the competition go "back to the basics, with culinary challenges that require a mastery of the primary skills of a chef." Back again to judge the new crop of 21 chefs are host Padma Lakshmi and judges Gail Simmons, Tom Colicchio, Emeril Lagasse and Hugh Acheson as well as newcomer Wolfgang Puck. After Spiaggia chef Sarah Grueneberg came thisclose to winning it all, maybe Camba can bring the title back to Chicago.
