I've only caught one of Jose Andres's PBS shows & wasn't impressed. Too much "oohing & aahing" & not enough cooking. That said, my husband gifted me with his "Made In Spain" cookbook, so I'll have to try some recipes & see how they come out.

I have been privileged to eat the food of (and to cook with in some cases) Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, Emeril, Lidia Bastianich, and Mario Batali of the well-known tv "chefs." In every case, I would enjoy to repeat the experience. All produce (or produced) amazing, delicious food, and their company, while different in each case, was stimulating.
I live about 20-25 minutes from The Inn At Little Washington & have never felt the need or desire to visit. Really - $500+ for a meal for two in a refurbished old house (& yes, I've been in it)? Sorry - while I ADORE well-made inventive food, I'll NEVER believe in a lifetime that any meal is worth that sort of cash in this day & age. Plus, I was recently gifted with an "Inn At Little Washington" cookbook, & nothing in there can't be made by anyone for a dribble of what they charge. Sorry that I'm not a "Patrick" fan. Maybe it's because I live so close & hear so much.

I believe so, it's been like 20 years since I've seen it but I always loved to watch him. He had so much fun and was so passionate about what he did

I'll throw in these two golden oldies, Nathalie Dupree for Southern recipes and Marcia Adams for Amish and Mid -Western recipes I learned a lot of basics from both of them.

Thanks for reminding me of Marcia Adams, Elf. I used to enjoy watching her on TV on Sunday afternoons. Have several of her cookbooks.

Are we getting away from the topic again? Talking of people we remember, as opposed to those we think are really the top tv chefs?
