“Top Chef” season 15 ended on March 8, 2018 with host Padma Lakshmi revealing the winner chosen by two renowned chefs — Tom Colicchio and Graham Elliot — and award-winning food writer Gail Simmons. Chicago native Joe Flamm edged out New Yorker Adrienne Cheatham for the title of “Top Chef: Colorado.”
Flamm staged an impressive comeback after flaming out in the competition in episode 9. He won the right to return by his performance on “Last Chance Kitchen.” Heading into the final, he had won four challenges while Cheatham had prevailed in just two. In the end, he proved to be too tough to beat, with his dishes also rating top marks from culinary experts Nancy Silverton, Jonathan Waxman and Curtis Duffy.
