I love Nigella Lawson, she is my absolute favourite, I use her recipes a lot. She is realistic, clever and witty.

I can't stand Jamie Oliver, I used to love him when he was younger, but we get Jamie overload here, and I am fed up with him now. All his recipes seem variations of about 5 themes.

I have a love hate relationship with Garry Rhodes, I really like his recipes, but as a presenter, he annoys me. I do love his Autumn into Winter, Spring into Summer series, as he does a lot of recipes with just a music background and no talking, which works really well.

sizz, i catch her on pbs like gb said. i have to try to look up her show schedule, but you can go to her website, i think it's www.lidiasitaly.com

she cooks both authentic italian regional dishes, as well as italian american favorites. it is a no bs kinda show, just good plain directions on how to prepare and serve great meals.

The TV chefs I mss the most are Pierre Franey and Justin Wilson. Those two guys were compelling in their own ways.

Pierre Franey was a classically trained french chef who had some really neat tricks that I use to this day.

Justin Wilson was a hoot with his belt and suspenders. His cooking may or may not have been the best, but he sure was fun to watch. I loved his little stories and descriptive language.

Of the living, Rocco Dispirito is my favorite. Shocker, huh? I like him because he down right makes this novice (me) look like a pro. :P

BTW, I think Bobby Flay gets a bum rap. I have yet to see Tony Bourdaine cook anything. Paula Deen's finger licking and double dipping drives me up a wall. Rachael Ray's recipes are not always tasty. Alton Brown's recipes don't always work and he says a lot of misleading things.

A chef is what he (or she) cooks.

Any who appear on a television have lost the art of cooking in favour of the art of self publicity.

So - You're saying people the caliber of Jacques Pepin, Julia Child, James Beard, have 'lost the art of cooking'? I have to say I must most emphatically disagree!!

To all the 'Liddia' fans - her cookbooks are fantastic - I have 'em all, and they're all very 'user friendly'!

I wish Racheal Ray would wear hot pants on her show.
