CityZen Pastry Chef Will Compete On Top Chef Just Desserts

Bravo has announced the contestants of season two of Top Chef Just Desserts and, yet again, DC has one of its own in the mix. Matthew Petersen, executive pastry chef at CityZen and Sou'Wester, will be repping us this time on the show that premieres on August 24th at 10 p.m. You may recall that Heather Roth — pastry chef at the time for Hook and Tackle Box — was a contestant in the show's first season.

Gail Simmons and Johnny Iuzzini return as host and head judge, along with chef Hubert Keller, and Dannielle Kyrillos rounding out the team. Click through to Eater National for the full lineup of Petersen's competition plus a preview video in which Petersen gets very excited when Gail announces the Beastie Boys' Adam "Ad Rock" Horovitz as a celebrity guest judge.
