The PBS Create channel has alot of good shows.
I find his recipes to be far more than just "eh" but that's my opinion of course.
If you like his burgers, his restuarant in the Mandalaly Bay Hotel in Las Vegas serves up his Kobe beef burger at a mere $79.00. A la carte.

Jeff Smith was always one of my favorites as well (although he, also, wasn't a "chef" - lol). I have all of his cookbooks except for the "family" one, since I don't have children.

The child-abuse scandals of which he was accused were never proved, but he settled out of court to spare his family. Still bitter about the allegations & pretty much confined to a motorized wheelchair due to heart disease, he passed away in 2004.

I hope we don't start beating Jeff Smith to death over the scandal thing because that's not what this thread is about. Hope we stick to the orginal subject.

I just wanted to say that I loved watching him, and I thought his show was not only informative but his recipes looked delicious. The one thing I loved about him was the way he looked so confused. He never remembered where he put any of his tools and gadgets and would have to hunt around for them on camera. He was great. I don't care about his personal life, let's let the man rest in peace.

Bobby Flay or Guy Fieri because both cook the way I like to eat. Grilling with Bobby would be the best. Guy makes so much that I end up cooking so I could definitely see him cooking for me.

Wow most of the chefs you have mentioned i haven't even heard of lol.

I think the main two i know are just jamie oliver and gordan ramsey. Are they any good? They seem quite good from what i have seen.
