    Gail Simmons - Judge



    Gail Simmons lends her strong culinary expertise as a judge and critic for Bravo's premiere season of "Top Chef," and will taste and critique the competing chefs' creations each week alongside host Katie Lee Joel and judge Tom Colicchio. Gail has been handling special projects for Food & Wine magazine since 2004, and in this role serves as a liaison between the marketing and editorial teams on special magazine events and chef-related initiatives. Prior to joining Food & Wine, Simmons most recently worked as special events manager for The Dinex Group, chef Daniel Boulud's restaurant empire.

    She began her culinary career writing food articles for Toronto Life magazine and the National Post, Canada's national newspaper. In addition, she served as the research and recipe assistant to food critic Jeffrey Steingarten at Vogue and was an apprentices at both Le Cirque 2000 and Vong restaurants. She has contributed to several cookbooks including It Must've Been Something I Ate by Jeffrey Steingarten, Daniel Boulud Cooking in New York City, and The New American Chef by Karen Page & Andrew Dornenburg.

    Simmons appears frequently on television, including CBS's The Early Show, Fox News Channel's Fox & Friends and NY1 News. She graduated summa cum laude from McGill University in Montreal and received her formal culinary training at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York. Simmons currently resides in New York City.

    That's a strange picture of her. She looks like a witch. A smiling witch.
    All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed; in
    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    Gail, you should've been the host! I have enjoyed watching you and hearing your input. You are the 1 good reason I get past the other judges when they speak. You have always been fair, professional, and naturally knowledgeable.

    I agree, IsaFan. Gail should have been the host, she is the only one I still listen to on the panel, as Mrs. Joel is useless and Tom can be too much of a prick.


    And I like that picture of her, I think she looks good there! Then again, I like witches, if they're the pretty kind like in "Buffy" or "Charmed."

    Gail Simmons has read the "Prince"

    Machiavelli has taught her well. Having successfully taken over the reins of the show next year, her signing of Anthony Bourdain and Rachael Ray are two strokes of genius.

    Reckon, Tom did not see it coming. Understandably he has a career to fall back on

    They need to find a host with some presence. Gail is not the answer. With her as host it would be a snoozefest.

    I don't know where Donald Crease is getting his information, but if it's true, then I'm delighted on all counts: I love Gail, Bourdain, and Ray!

    I was making a little joke referring to Maveno's remark upthread describing Gail as looking like a witch in the promo photo from the starter post.
