Only three test kitchen stars remain, Andy Baraghani, Brad Leone, and Christopher.

In October 2020, Bon Appétit hired new talent – Claudette Zepeda, DeVonn Francis, Rawlston Williams, Tiana “Tee” Gee, Harold Villarosa, Christian “Chrissy” Tracey, Samantha Seneviratne, and Melissa Miranda.

”Very excited to announce our re-launch today and having the opportunity to work with so many talented chefs,” Chris wrote on his Instagram account.
