Chef Sara Takes 2nd Place in Bravo's Top Chef
By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH - Paducah's Chef Sara Bradley made it all the way to the final two Thursday evening on Season 16 of Bravo Network's Top Chef. It was the final showdown as the top three chefs created their best four course meals for the final night of judging.

Eric Adjepong was eliminated after the judges were served the first course. Chef Sara and Kelsey Barnard Clark cooked head to head with four courses of creations. The final two ladies are reportedly friends, supporting each other all the way to the top. When judges announced Chef Kelsey won the title of Top Chef, as disappointed as Chef Sara was, she said she was proud of her friend. 

Bradley owns Paducah's Freight House restaurant. She was the only chef from Kentucky in this season's competition, which took place mostly in the Bluegrass State. The show also shot an episode in Nashville, and traveled to China for the final three episodes.  

The table of diners Thursday evening included Deputy Editor of FOOD & WINE Magazine Melanie Hansche, acclaimed chefs Mitsuharu Tsumara, Alexander Smalls, Dan Hong, May Chow, and Alvin Leung, along with Tom, Padma, Nilou and Graham.
