Vegan Top Chef

Bravo’s Top Chef All-Stars Night at the Museum episode, aired on December 8, featured two teams cooking to win the favor of children and their parents, with one group preparing a plant-based menu. The chefs were placed into two groups, Team Tyrannosaurus and Team Brontosaurus, the latter requiring a vegetarian menu. Team Brontosaurus, including past Top Chef stars Spike Mendelsohn and Carla Hall, cooked veg dishes including gazpacho and gnocchi. The vegetarian team beat Team T-Rex, who prepared animal product-laden dishes such as braised bacon with hard-boiled egg.
