The season premiere of the much hyped about Top Chef All-Stars isn't until next Wednesday, December 1, but head judge Tom Colicchio revealed some fun details about the series over the weekend at the Food and Wine and Rum festival in Barbados. Instead of just mentoring the cheftestants and judging the dishes, Colicchio says viewers can expect to see him in the kitchen. "It was the first time, I got into the kitchen and cooked with them, under the clock. It's harder than it looks."
