Like Marcel Vigneron, Richard brought molecular gastronomy (and banana scallops!) back to the forefront of "Top Chef" discourse. Oh, and he had a faux-hawk. Although he made it all the way to the Puerto Rico finale, he lost the title to the show's first female winner, Stephanie Izard.

Richard Blais is not only a chef, but also a culinary designer, working all over the east coast. He and his wife reside in Atlanta, Georgia, with their two weimaraners and are expecting their first child in the spring. He is known for his innovative and personal take on classical cuisine and has studied under luminaries such as Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud and Ferran Adria. Blais believes cooking is an art and a craft and food is meant to stimulate on many levels. He incorporates global ingredients, modern cooking methods, wit and a sense of humor to all his food. He says if he were a food he would be an artichoke. "It's tough, difficult to work with, even dangerous at its core; but when you come down to it, it's simple, beautiful and delicious."
