Tyler Anderson, the chef-owner of Millwright’s in Simsbury and co-owner of The Cook and the Bear in West Hartford, is about to add “Cheftestant” to his extensive resume.

 Anderson has been announced as one of 15 competitors on the newest season of "Top Chef," debuting Dec. 7 on Bravo. He is the first Connecticut chef to join the series, which is now in its 15th season. 

The new season is described as an "epic culinary adventure through the state of Colorado."

With the judges looking for the chefs' peak performances, the challenges will test the competitors' culinary abilities in picturesque locales."
