Just Desserts: Bravo's Top Chef Pastry Spinoff

top-chef-logoBravo announced a spin-off of Top Chef focusing on desserts only (this follows the announcement last Thursday of another season of Top Chef Masters). Amazingly, there's no fear of oversaturation — an exec told Variety that Bravo hopes to "have some sort of Top Chef presence on the network's schedule throughout the entire year." Judges aren't even lined up yet, but it's expected in 2010.

This is in addition to the planned Top Chef magazine and Top Chef Junior.

Press Release follows:
