Top Chef judge and restaurateur Tom Colicchio has a bone to pick with his Hell's Kitchen counterpart Gordon Ramsay over the way Fox's foul-mouthed culinary king treats his aspiring chefs.
Colicchio said he works nights so he's not usually around to watch much TV, and when he does find himself in-front of the television it's usually to watch his favorites.
"It's not [Hell's Kitchen]," he told TV Guide.
Colicchio said he considers his Bravo reality show's third-season cast, which consists mostly of sous chefs or executive chefs, to be "a deeper talent pool" than Top Chef's previous seasons. Nevertheless, he couldn't help but offer some words of wisdom from his decades of experience in the restaurant industry.
"Simple is better than complicated, especially when you're doing things under time constraints," he told TV Guide. "I think too often their minds are racing so quickly that they end up doing more than they can handle. The chefs that are really going to distinguish themselves are the chefs that are going to do something uniquely their own. You want to see someone's own style and personality on the plate."
