Gordon Ramsay. I would love to see him on ICA! Fantastic cook books and Web recipes.

Rick Bayless hands down is my favorite. Bobby Flay is a contender. I think Guy is fun, and I would love to hang out with him. Ramsay also amazing not a hells kitchen fan, but I love watching him on kitchen nightmares, and his new book is pretty good.

I love Alton Brown's scientific explanations and how he takes an entire show to break down a particular facet of cooking. I really learn a lot from him and can adapt it to other recipies.

LOL - the nice thing about PBS TV Chefs - they get recycled! I hadn't seen Nick Stalone on a cooking show in 5 or more years (he shows up on those home shopping network shows from time to time in the middle of the night or on weekends) and this morning there he was making an abominal dish from some lovely fresh tuna (I actually like his recipes - but he drives me nuts with his "follow the fingers walking" stichk!)

Maybe next week Biba will be a current television chef, too?

Look for 3 books:

On Food and Cooking - The Science and Lore of the Kitchen - Harold McGee
The Curious Cook - Harold McGee
Cookwise - The Secrets of Cooking Revealed - Shirley O. Corriher

Those will give you about 90% of the "science" behind Alton's shows - plus a lot more info.
