Top Chef Winner 2009 - Michael Voltaggio
Michael Voltaggio is the latest winner of Top Chef. Throughout the season we saw Michael and his brother Bryan pitted against each other. For the finale on Wednesday night the drama stopped and the emphasise was on the final three competiter's (Michael Voltaggio, Bryan Voltaggio and Kevin Gillespie) amazing food.
The final episode featured returns from previous cast members adn a visit from the competiters mothers.
In the end, the judges’ tough decision came down to the two brothers after the panel determined that Kevin was an outstanding chef who simply had an off night. Their pick of Michael over Bryan was an emotional one, Colicchio told the brothers, but the Voltaggios vowed that they’d rather be up against each other than any other chef out there.
