Chuy Valencia from "Top Chef: Texas" is one of the chefs competing in season 9 of the Bravo reality cooking competition. He currently resides in Chicago, Illinois.

Chuy Valencia ("Top Chef") was born and raised in Sonoma, California, by parents who grew their own food in the backyard and always had a pot of something delicious simmering on the stove. Growing up, he spent his summers and holiday seasons in his parents' native Colima, Mexico, on the family orchard. After school, he went to Chicago and began working as Sous Chef at the renowned Frontera Grill as well as Topolobampo, which reinforced the cultural connection to his food and refined his style. Chuy presently co-owns and operates Chilam Balam, a seasonal small plates restaurant.
