The undefeated two-time champion’s next venture will be teaming up with Top Chef‘s Grand Prize sponsor and Official Water partner.

NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — After winning the 20th season of Bravo’s “Top Chef” and earning the ultimate title of World All-Star champion, Buddha Lo is diving into his newest venture, collaborating with Saratoga® Spring Water as the brand’s Fine Dining Tastemaker. Top Chef’s first back-to-back historic winner, who has trained in Michelin-rated restaurants in France, Melbourne and New York City, will be creating eye-popping content featuring his delectable dishes as well as appearing on behalf of the brand.

I look forward to working closely with the brand on crafting creative experiences that will inspire and delight foodies everywhere.”
