TOP PICK: ‘Top Chef Masters‘ (10pm on Bravo)
This has been the season of Susur, and anything less than a coronation of the amazing Asian chef would be a total shocker.
On the season finale, the three remaining finalists- Susur Lee, the leading chef in Asian fusion cuisine; Rick Moonen of RM restaurant in Las Vegas; and Marcus Samuelsson, James Beard Award winner- face their final challenge and only one chef is crowned Top Chef Master. In the climactic finale, the three accomplished chefs create three different dishes reflecting their first food memory, what made them become a chef, and a dish that best describes them.
