I de-ring AND de-watch! That's why I have timers.

I adored TFL, and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Julia back. I liked Martin Yan, and Justin Wilson, too!
You've all pretty much listed the ones I'd like to see back, too.

Oh, and eeewwww, Sara Moulton wore a ring, too.

I always take mine off before I cook.
natalie dupree always wore rings and it looked so nasty when she would have dough or whatever dripping off the rings!!

Julia wore a ring and so does Jacques. A plain band is not a bad thing. No comparison between that and long fingernails, imho.

Julia's old shows are also available on DVD, so you can see them whenever you want!

plain band is fine. it's the big diamond (or stone of any kind) that looks nasty.

I have to whole heartedly agree... I loved watching the Galloping Gourmet, Yan Can Cook, and the original Julia child series when growing up. Although you can find snippets here and there on youtube and other video sites, I'd love to get my hands on some vintage footage. I need to pay better attention to my PBS station linup and subscribe back to netflix! hehe

Just a heads up - while I don't know about the other vintage players, Julia Child's "The French Chef" series is available on DVD.
