Good news, foodies: Despite slightly falling ratings, Bravo has opted to renew their cooking competition series, Top Chef for an eleventh season. No word yet on which city will be hosting the new season or if all the judges will be back - though really, what would the show be without Padma Lakshimi? - but at the very least, we have confirmation the show will be back.

Though ratings have fallen compared to a few years ago, the show is still a strong performer for the network, and last season pulled in a high of 1.4 million viewers. Auditions for this season's new chefs will begin on February 11th in Austin, TX, then head over to Brooklyn, Las Vegas, Chicago, Miami, and Los Angeles.
