Top Chef: Just Desserts is the second Top Chef spinoff Bravo has ordered.

Top Chef Masters' first season subsequently aired earlier this year and was won by Rick Bayless. It was renewed for a second season last week.
Bravo renewed Top Chef for a seventh season earlier this month and is currently casting for the new edition. TopChef's sixth edition -- dubbed Top Chef: Las Vegas -- premiered in August and is currently airing.
