Who Were Your Favorite Top Chef Judges?

Written by | Entertainment

It’s a tough call, we know. Week after week, month after month and season after season, you sit watching food be made, smelled, tasted without ever knowing how the actual flavors would wash over your own palate. Of course you have to rely on the judges’ opinions. But who do you really trust?

    The best Top Chef judge was Philippe Etchebest. Just remove the E and the C in his surname if you want proof. He’s like Tom Colicchio without the bad restaurants. But since your focus is the American Top Chef, it’s Padma all the way.
