After cooking in front of the Eiffel Tower and toasting to a place in the final three, the Top Chef Season 20 finale is poised to be the ultimate culinary event. While viewers might have their fan favorite chef, the Top Chef World All-Star winner will be crowned at Judges Table. In this exclusive clip from the finale, everyone is ready to see who will serve the meal of their life.

According to Bravo, the Top Chef Season 20 finale, “Fin” features the following:

"The finalists are on top of the world as they’ve made it to the finale in Paris. The final three will have the opportunity to cook the meal of their lives for Padma, Tom and Gail, along with a table of culinary luminaries. The guests include Marcus Samuelsson, May Chow, Daniela Soto-Innes, Clare Smyth, Simon Rogan, Ángel León, Food & Wine magazine’s Hunter Lewis, Michelin Guide’s International Director Gwendal Poullennec and “Top Chef France” Judge Hélène Darroze. The chefs lay it all on the table in their final challenge, but only one will take home the ultimate title of “Top Chef” World All-Star."

While the culinary talent around the table might be intimidating, the ability to tell their story via food on the plate cannot be overlooked. Even if the chefs might have been preparing for this moment, it is different to put that memorable, flavorful food in front of the judges.

In this Top Chef Season 20 finale exclusive clip, there is a glimpse the food that will be served at the final meal.

After going through both the favorite and least favorite challenges, this meal showcases the unique perspectives of the chefs. Whether it is Sara who is highlighting Kentucky favorites or Gabri who brings Mexican ingredients to the table, each chef is giving a glimpse into who they are and how that has influenced their culinary point of view. Even if Budha pulls out a multitude of techniques, it is the heart of the dish that will connect with the judges.

Given that the multi-course progressions from the chef are very different, it will be interesting to see how the judges compare the meals. Will it be technique, execution, or emotional connection that impresses with that last bite?

No matter who is crowned the winner in the Top Chef Season 20 finale, there will be smiles, tears, and a few laughs along the way. It is not often that diner will enjoy grasshopper flour and pea cake in one meal, but many Top Chef fans would dream to sit down and enjoy one of these dishes.

Top Chef World All-Stars has been more than just one person hearing the phrase “you are Top Chef.” This season was as much a love letter to the fans as it was to the culinary greatness that chefs can serve. The 20th season promised greatness and it delivered.
