  • PLEASE PACK YOUR KNIVES: How will Southern Art & Bourbon Bar's chef Anthony Gray fare on season 10 of Top Chef?

For all you "Top Chef" fanatics (y'all are still out there, right?), Bravo has announced that season 10 will premiere on Wed., Nov. 7. Among the list of "cheftestants" that will be competing for the title this year is Georgia native, Anthony Gray.

Gray hails from Macon, GA where his family cooked with a farm-to-table approach. From his childhood, he developed a " love of the land—and a personal understanding of where food comes from," which he brings to Southern Art & Bourbon Bar where Gray hones his craft as executive chef. At Southern Art & Bourbon Bar, Gray shows "his deep appreciation for Southern ingredients and traditional charcuterie." In 2012 StarChefs.com named Gray as “Atlanta Rising Star Chef.”

But Gray isn't the only one representing Atlanta on this season's "Top Chef." Returning as a judge, Hugh Acheson will once again showcase his culinary knowledge, sporting his iconic "Hughnibrow." Acheson has dazzled diners all around the state with his signature dishes featured in his restaurants: Five & Ten, The National, and Empire State South.

Let's see if these southern gentlemen can charm the rest of America.
