If you've been sitting through all those Top Chef elimination and Quickfire challenges just to get to the desserts, Bravo has the show for you. Today network executives announced that a Top Chef spin-off series has been picked up. Top Chef: Just Desserts (the same drill, only with pastry chefs) will begin holding open calls for chefs to participate in the new show today in cities nationwide. Pastry chefs, your time starts now! The casting call for Los Angeles? At Tom Colicchio's Craft Restaurant in Century City–where else?–on Sunday, November 15th, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

What fun. Along with the vending machine nonsense and Whole Foods runs, burning sugar and pâtisserie palaces and blow torches. Carême would have been proud.
