Celeb. Chefs

I was just wondering what everyone's favs. are. I personally like Alton Brown, and Ming Sai the most. I like Ramsey as a non demonstration cook. I also watch Americas Test Kitchen almost every week.


P.S. I know we all like Giada de Laurentiis, but that's a whole different subject.

Anthony Bourdain is my fav. Pulls no punches, tells it like it is. I would just love to meet the man in person. Bet he would be a blast at a out door blow out cook.

Hey Thanks, I like watchin Gilda, not for the recipes

Tyler Florence has some good recipes sometimes. My meatball recipe was missing something, I caught his ulitmate meatball recipe a while back.
Come to find out my proportions were off some. After making some ajustments (more salt, garlic & parsly) They kick butt now...

I like a lot of them and for the ones on TV I like Alton Brown for the geek factor, Guy Fieri for the cool factor, Tony Bourdain for the adventure, Mario because the man is just calm, Michael Symon-- what a laugh, Paula Dean for getting 7 syllables out of the word Y'all, and Giada because she can cook too.

Mike Mills, Adam Perry Lang, and Steven Raichlen for their BBQ guru-ness.

JB for the, well, just cuz damn it!

But... my favorite is Ina Garten. Hands down... I think many of us mighty secretly wish to be Jeffrey. My wife cooks her recipes so I guess I get to live somewhat vicariously through that, but man, what great meals she prepares.

All kidding aside... I can't choose one. Mine are: Julia, Jacques, and Jeff. I grew up watching them on PBS and they are who I learned the fundamentals from.

I totally agree, but you gotta add in Justin Wilson for the same time period!

Now, I like Bobby Flay, Alton Brown and Rachel Ray (I know she's not a chef and can be annoying) but she's who she is and she's real and I like her down to Earth SIMPLE recipes, nothing Gourmet or fancy, but good. Her magazine 'Everyday' is fantastic too, one of my favorite magazines with great recipes and information.

She is definately fun to look at.

You don't have the recipe or a link do you? Sounds good.

Thanks.
