Graham Elliot Bowles stars in "Masterchef" on FOX as one of the judges and is also a contestant in Season 2 of Bravo's culinary competition "Top Chef Masters." He also competed in Season 1.

Having started his culinary education at Johnson and Wales University, Graham Elliot Bowles began his career by working at The Mansion on Turtle Creek, a five diamond/five-star property in Dallas, Texas. This was followed by a move to Chicago where Bowles had the opportunity to work at the famed restaurant Charlie Trotters for the next three years, as well as work alongside Chefs Rick Tramonto and Gale Gand as the Chef de Cuisine of Tru.

A stint at The Jackson House Inn & Restaurant in Woodstock, Vermont earned him a spot as one of Food & Wine Magazine's Best New Chefs of 2004. This opened the door for Bowles to return to Chicago to become Chef de Cuisine of Avenues at The Peninsula Hotel. During his four years leading the kitchen, he became the nation's youngest four-star chef with perfect reviews from Chicago Magazine, Chicago Sun-Times and the Chicago Tribune, as well as three James Beard award nominations.

In May 2008, Bowles opened Graham Elliot in Chicago, a "bistronomic" restaurant combining four-star cuisine with humor and accessibility, to another round of wide critical acclaim. In Sumer 2009, his passion for music led himto be the Culinary Ambassador at Lollapalooza, a three-day music festival, where he cooked for both the public as well as backstage for the performers. In the Spring of 2010 Bowles plans to open Grahamwich, a branded sandwich shop in the River North area of Chicago.
