[Mis à jour le 23 février 2022 à 17h00] M6 airs episode 2 of Top Chef this Wednesday, February 23, 2022. After Eliot’s expulsion last week, candidates will cook for the first time with their respective brigades and take on the challenges of two great chefs. For the first test, he will have to surprise Peruvian chef Pia Leone on the theme of corn. She is a big name in the field of international cuisine, having been chosen as the Best Female Chef in the World by the World’s 50 Best in 2021. Unfortunately, for fine French gourmets, his cuisine can only be enjoyed in Peru: this 35-year-old chef’s gourmet restaurant Kjolle in Lima. Other establishments include Snack Mayo in Lima and The Mill in Cuzco.
Top Chef 2022 candidates who fail to qualify the first test will have to take on Chef Francis Mallmann’s challenge: cooking with fire only. The Argentine chef uses this type of cooking for all services, from appetizers to dessert. While in Argentina, however, he was unable to visit the M6 set and left it to the executive chef of his restaurant in France to test and taste the candidates’ preparations. In fact, it’s possible to taste Francis Malman’s Patagonian cuisine in Provence at Puy-Saint-Répard (Bouches-du-Rhne).

Since the creation of Top Chef, the show’s jury has evolved from season to season, with some chefs leaving the show and being replaced by new names from the French culinary scene. For the 2022 season, Philippe Echebest (Blue Brigade), Helen Daroz (Red Brigade) and Paul Pirate (Purple Brigade) are returning to the jury. For her part, Top Chef’s emblematic juror Michelle Sarran announced that she will not return to the show in 2022.

The chefs of the Ostau restaurant in Baumannre (Box-de-Provence) will train the orange brigade. Stephen Rotenberg commented, “He has every intention of blowing it all up. He arrived with energy and a willingness to do very hard”. Glenn Viall explains that he was not specifically asked to be on the jury of Top Chef 2022, he was approached by the production. “Of course, I jumped at the chance, he recalls. It’s a competition that’s well-regarded, well-watched, with some of the world’s greatest chefs coming to participate. Much of my philanthropy and was greeted with kindness.”
Top Chef viewers will discover a new juror this Wednesday evening. If Philippe Echebest, Helen Daroz and Paul Pirate are still present, Michelle Sarran has been dropped from the program. The latter called for the production option without reason: “It was a bit violent, recalls the chef from Toulouse in an interview with Paris last September. I didn’t expect it at all. I wondered why his decision inspired me.” Did I? Did I do wrong? I got no answer.” He is replaced by Glenn Weil, who, according to Telly Loisir’s information, did not fail to contact his predecessor prior to filming.
