"Top Chef Just Desserts" Season 2 is Bravo's most delectable series, allowing you to satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt. 14 pastry chefs will see if they have what it takes to out bake, out blend and out brulee the competition where the main focus is the Achilles heel of most chefs: desserts. Gail Simmons returns as the host of this highly competitive series showcasing the best of the best in the world of pastry arts. Once again joining the judges' panel as head judge is Johnny Iuzzini, one of the country's most celebrated and innovative pastry chefs and Executive Pastry Chef at Restaurant Jean Georges. Hubert Keller, critically acclaimed chef as well as guest judge on "Top Chef" and finalist on "Top Chef Masters," and Dannielle Kyrillos, entertaining expert and Contributing Editor of Food Republic will also serve as regular judges for the series.

"Top Chef Just Desserts" features 14 contestants who will be whittled down week by week as they compete to out-bake their competition. The winning chef will receive $100,000 furnished by KitchenAid, a feature in Food & Wine magazine and a showcase at the Annual Food & Wine Cayman Cookout. The chefs must face off in some of the most difficult and creative challenges we've seen thus far—from fairytale showpieces and edible room décor to high-class gingerbread houses and carnival delights—all while serving up these treats to some celebrity guest judges including Beastie Boys' Adam "Ad Rock" Horovitz, the cast of "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory," renowned pastry chef Francois Payard and acclaimed chef Cat Cora among others.

The series offers a fascinating window into the competitive, pressure-filled environment of pastry chefs at the highest level. Each episode holds two challenges for the pastry chefs: the first, a quick-fire test of their basic abilities and the elimination challenge designed to test the versatility and inventiveness of the pastry chefs. These chefs will prove that a little sugar and spice never tasted so nice.

The "Top Chef Just Desserts" Season 2 contestants are Amanda Rockman, Carlos Enriquez, Chris Hanmer, Craig Poirer, Katzie Guy-Hamilton, Lina Biancamano, Matthew Petersen, Megan Ketover, Melissa Camacho, Nelson Paz, Orlando Santos, Rebecca Masson, Sally Camacho and Vanarin Kuch.

"Top Chef Just Desserts" Season 2 is produced by the Emmy Award-winning Magical Elves with Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz serving as executive producers.
