Top Chef All-Stars - kicks off Wednesday, 12/1 Lots of terrific chefs who didn't quite reach the Top in their first attempts are back for what just might be the franchise's best season ever. Two Tiff's! Marcel the Molecular Maestro! Carla! and Fabio And my guy Angelo. Angelo all the way for me (screw y'all who misinterpret his kindly motives!) ... but I'd also love to see Carla and/or either Tiff go deep into the season. Fabio too, if he promises to shave only every third day. Where's my tall drink of water, CJ? Boycott!!! First challenge is to re-do the dish you failed the worst with in your original season.
