Top Chef in San Miguel

By David Johanssen

Bravo Media’s Top Chef recently traveled to San Miguel de Allende to film a spicy three-part finale for this season. Each Top Chef contestant is paired with a local San Miguel artist and instructed to make a dish in the style of their artist. The artists are Artemio Sepulveda, an expressionist painter; Leonardo Diaz, an edgy graffiti-style artist; Béa Aaronson, a colorful multi-media artist; and Merry Calderoni, a Texas artist whose art is inspired by the greens, browns, and reds of the Central American pyramids.
