The line-up for Chefdance 2014 is filled with winners, all-stars and finalists from the Bravo reality television show "Top Chef."

This is the 11th year of Chefdance, a private dining event that coincides with The Sundance Film Festival. It takes place in the basement of Park City Live at 625 Main St, Park City.

On Friday, Jan. 17, Chef Brooke Williamson, the runner-up from Season 10, kicks off the five-day series. Williamson will be joined in the kitchen with Tiffany Derry, who placed fifth in Season 7 and competed among the All-Star chefs in Season 8.

On Saturday, Jan. 18, it will be de-ja-vu from Season 7, with both the winner, Kevin Sbrga, and runner-up, Angelo Sosa, in the Chefdance kitchen. Both competed on All-Stars as well.

The finale on Tuesday, Jan. 21, features celebrity chef Brian Malarkey, who launched his career on Season 3 of "Top Chef" and who — up until last season — had been a mentor on the ABC chef competition reality show "The Taste" with Anthony Bourdain and Nigella Lawson. Without the reality show gig, however, the San Diego chef has been working to open a second Herringbone restaurant in the Los Angeles.

Chefdance includes two nights that are reality-TV-free.

On Sunday, Jan. 19, Craig Lieckfel, chef of Detroit's nomadic pop-up restaurant "Guns + Butter," drops in.

He'll be followed on Monday, Jan. 20 by Pascal Lorange, the owner of Los Angeles's famed Fig & Olive restaurant.
