Bryan Voltaggio will compete on season five of Bravo’s Top Chef Masters, airing at 10 p.m. on July 24. The Frederick native will vie against 12 other chefs for a chance to win $100,000 for his charity of choice, Share Our Strength (SOS).
Bryan, a James Beard Foundation Award finalist, is the first chef to compete on both Top Chef Masters and Top Chef, where he placed second in season six. His brother, Michael, took first place in the showdown between the siblings.
He’s not the only Marylander on TV this summer. In June, Rodney Henry of Dangerously Delicious Pies became a finalist on Food Network’s Food Network Star. So far, he’s still in the running.
