Now that Top Chef All-Stars is kind of, sort of beginning to draw to a close, Bravo wants us to start thinking about the next season of Top Chef Masters.

Per a release, the network has announced its lineup for its third season, which will be hosted by Curtis Stone, possibly the smarmiest Australian ever to have been behind both a kitchen range and a television camera.

Joining Stone as judges on the show, which premieres April 6, will be Saveur's James Oseland and Ruth Reichl of Ruth Reichl fame. Also, in a triumph for fans of Mad Men and very cool women, Christina Hendricks will be appearing for a '60s-themed episode, which will probably exploit era-appropriate food like oysters Rockefeller and rumaki.
