You are not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

My son and I enjoy Rachael Ray.

Emeril walks in and shakes hands with 20 people, then cooks without washing his hands - Yuk!

Sorry I did not read all the posts...but caught the idea of where you guys are going...(I've watched cooking TV since Graham Kerr, so you get where I come from!)

I believe that Emeril is\was the best, in that he showed a lot more than do others, and if you didn't like the "chattiness" well, too bad, does anyone not have a "mute" function on the remote? His recipes taste great, and you could watch a show, and replicate it fairly easily...

I also got to eat his product back in the early/mid '90's when he worked at KPaul's in New Orleans, and granting the point that us Canucks seldom get "crawdad's", his were an epitome...

Jaimie Oliver is probably a good cook, and we'd like him if we ate his stuff, but agree he isn't a showman on TV, not is the dialogue that interesting...

Rachel is nice "eye candy", but as far as offering recipes that you can bridge from, its not happening, even if the dialogue is pleasing...

Michael Smith is a bit more interesting, in spite of the weird hair, every once in a while he really does expose how to "do" it...

"Iron Chef" (NOT THE MEMBER!) is getting tiresome, tho' it was interestesting a few years ago...nobody has those ingredients to work with or from, and I think they tip off the contestants...the judging panel has zero knowledge of NA tastes ...

Okay, I've spouted off enough...

I can only just tolerate Bobby Flay's programs whren he has his fiancee on or when Jackie Malouf was on with him. The show where he had the butcher, fish monger, etc.( I understand they were actors) and his "friends" hanging over his shoulders while a select few got to eat was asinine in my opinion. I only watched when I was really bored and had nothing to read.

I like him when he is on his own and have made some of his recipes with good results. He has given some really good advice about grilling, which I used to dislike doing because I didn't know how.

Jacques and Julia are still my faves. Classic food, classic techniques, classy people.

Lidia and the blondes who work for Christopher Kimball are next. Chris and his bowtie I can do without.

Clarissa and Jennifer, the Two Fat Ladies, were a hoot to listen to, but I didn't always want to eat the food they prepared. I did love all the locations they went to.

Alton Brown is fun to watch, kind of like the geeky next-door neighbor
guy who shows you how to fix your computer with some rubber bands and paper clips.

Rachel Ray is too perky for my taste. Sara Moulton is almost there too.

Emeril has about wore my butt out, but I usually like what he's cooking.

psiguyy, I loved "zhoo-stahn"! He had his shtick going too, but it's my kind of shtick.

Have only seen enough of Michael Chiarello to know I need to see more. Seems to have a laid-back approach that appeals to me.

Ming Tsai - waaaaaaaaay cute. Doesn't matter what he's cooking.

The ick factor - Bobby Flay, Yan Can Cook

Iron Chef - so corny it's cool.

Mario was better when he did the other show where he traveled around to different places in Italy. I wanna see those orange clogs again.

Kool Aid - Think before you drink.
