Bravo on Thursday announced the premiere date for "Top Chef," filmed in Colorado this year and featuring two Colorado chefs among the 15 to compete on the Emmy-winning series' 15th season.

The battle for culinary superiority resumes at 8 p.m. Dec. 7, with Brother Luck, chef and owner of Four by Brother Luck in downtown Colorado Springs, and Denver's Bar Dough Executive Chef Carrie Baird providing a taste of Colorado.

The contestants traveled throughout the state, competing in challenges in Denver, Boulder, Telluride and Aspen. Throughout the season, viewers will watch the chefs prepare Rocky Mountain oysters, tailgate with the Denver Broncos, and have a campfire cook-off at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen.

Host Padma Lakshmi, head judge Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons and Graham Elliot fill out the judges' table, but plenty of Colorado chefs will appear as guest judges this season. They are Troy Guard, Alex Seidel, season five winner Hosea Rosenberg, Lachlan MacKinnon-Patterson, Keegan Gerhard, "Top Chef Masters" finalist Jen Jasinski and Frank Bonanno.

If you can't wait until Dec. 7, you're in luck. The online companion series "Last Chance Kitchen" makes its debut Nov. 30. There might be some spoilers for the new season, so watch at your own peril.

I was fortunate to attend three "Top Chef" events while they were filming in Colorado in May and June, so I'll have plenty of in-depth coverage for this season - including a season preview, an interview with Colicchio and weekly episode wrapups.
