It seems that in between painting pretty polka dots with sauce at Rover’s, fundraising for his new project, Luc, and charming KUOW listeners with that inimitable French accent, Thierry Rautureau has been taping for the second season of Bravo’s Top Chef Masters.

According to Eater.com:

“A tipster sends word that Bravo’s Magical Elves were filming yesterday at the Whole Foods in Pasadena. Along with Monica Pope (whose presence on TCM 2.0 was spoiled last week), there were Whole Foods sightings of Marcus Samuelsson of New York City (ordering lots of spicy chicken sausage), Thierry Rautureau of Seattle (wearing signature fedora) and Carmen Gonzalez of Miami/NYC fame (she even twittered over the weekend that she was in LA). Another less certain sighting could have Mr. Charlie Palmer involved as well.”

We can’t wait to see Rautureau in full competition mode.
