The one in Ft. Lauderdale DOES have a view of the ocean. At least that's what my oldest son tells me! His Godmother of all people brought him there when he turned 13...came back w/pictures of himself caught between 2 sets! (he was shorter, at the time)_

Is he the guy who does that low-carb cooking show now? Can't remember the name of it, but I think the chef's name is George.
nope two entirely different people. i know his name was george hirsh... i just don't know how to spell his last name.

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.
oh yessss i had forgotten Nigella,she is my favourite too,i've learned a few great baking recipes from her,and whatever u say about Garry,i'd still say he is great,just great. :D

I like Alton Brown for his wonderful instruction, and I like Tyler's "Best Of" show. But I adore Paula Dean; if I ate all of her recipes I'd weigh 300 pounds.

I'm not much of a fan of Emeril; I find I like to watch shows that teach about technique, and he doesn't talk much, if at all, about technique, just says things like, "then what I'm gonna do is, I'm gonna add a little parsley ..." Uh-huh. I like Mario because of his patter and his vast knowledge, like listening to him, but frankly, his dishes are unappealing to me.

I miss Julia.

The only show I consistently like from food network is Alton Brown's Good Eats - he's a great teacher.

I like Lidia's Italian Table which airs in the afternoon once or twice a week on my local PBS station and which I try to remember to tape - she's had some wonderful shows on making pasta.

I wish I could find some good shows on any kind of Asian cooking. PBS airs shows by Martin Yan - he's OK but if anyone knows of others I'd love to get your suggestions.

The only shows I know of, subfus, are Iron Chef and the one with Ming Tsai (can't remember the name of this one). Tsai's show is pretty good, and Iron Chef is kind of silly but fun to watch, if you're into play-by-play commentary. Martin Yan drives me batty.

Sorry, not an expert on Asian cuisine. Someone better informed will probably have more useful suggestions for you.
