Top Chef: Just Desserts spin-off will be a competition between pastry chefs

Bravo is spinning off yet another series from Top Chef, this time focusing on a culinary craft that few of its previous chefs demonstrated skill with: pastries.

Top Chef: Just Desserts “will consist of pastry chefs competing against one another in a series of challenges,” according to a Bravo press release. So, it’s just like the regular series, and will also be produced by Magical Elves.

Bravo VP Frances Berwick told Variety that contestants’ “Achilles heel is usually the desserts. As this has gone on, we’ve been thinking that it would be fun to do a ‘Top Chef’ with experienced pastry chefs. We’ve had a few pastry chefs on ‘Top Chef,’ but they haven’t gone too far. It’s just a different skill.”

The show is now casting as part of previously announced Top Chef 7 open casting calls.
