If you like cooking competitions, you’re in luck. “Top Chef: Seattle” debuts on the Bravo cable channel tonight.

Twenty-one contestants,”cheftestants” if you have a high cute quotient, vie to be the No. 1 chef in the Emerald City. (None of the contestants is from Seattle, though.)

Host and celebrity chef  Padma Lakshmi and judges Hugh Acheson, Tom Colicchio, Wolfgang Puck and Gail Simmons were filming here for seven weeks this summer, spotlighting city landmarks from Fare Start to the Bite of Seattle.

We recently interviewed Lakshmi, Padma Lakshmi speaks out on ‘Top Chef Seattle,’ who describes the show as “A love letter to Seattle and its food scene.”

Rebekah Denn will blog recaps of each show on the All You Can Eat blog.
