Lia Bardeen is one of the chefs on Bravo's reality cooking competition, "Top Chef 3: Miami."

Originally a literature major, Lia Bardeen found her passion in cooking and never looked back. Currently the executive sous chef at Manhattan's elite Jean Georges restaurant, this self-taught, self-starter knew that to be the best — she had to train under the best. She has honed her skills at Jean Georges and now feels she is one of the top line cooks around. Living in New York, she has been influenced by many different types of food and calls her signature style eclectic. She feels it's key to always be proud of what you do.
