He's on TVFN. They keep moving him around, so I'm never really sure what time anymore.

I caught his show once. He's a very warm and friendly personality, and his earthy approach to food is compelling.

That's tough ... Mario Batali, Jacques Pepin, Gordon Ramsay are probably the highest on my list. Mario and Jacques for their knowledge, skill, and refined taste buds. Gordon because of his knowledge and business sense.

Okay, I'm new to the site. This thread makes me question as to whether I belong here or not.

As far as "chefs" go, I like Giada for her training and skills. But as for everyday cookin'...

[bowing my head in shame]

I like Rachel Ray! She's a bit annoying, but her recipes are doable for a mom in the Midwest.

Ya'll pray for me!

I've already burned incense to Baccus in hopes of his delivering you from this affliction.

Hey - welcome! And no need to "bow your head in shame". I have two of Ray's cookbooks & have yet to try a recipe that I didn't love. It's just her on-screen personality that I can't stand. Her recipes are great.

Yeah, I can't argue with Ray's abilities.

That voice, though, it's like nails on chalkboard. And the stupid "isms" - I can't decide what's worse - Rachel's "YUMMO" or Emeril's "BAM!"

Oh its YUMMO for sure. I actually do not enjoy her food generally speaking .

Well, I've looked at a few of her recipes here and there, and it's definitely solid, if unspectacular, stuff the home cook can make fast. When you're confined to 30 minutes (and you're not an Iron Chef with an unlimited budget for groceries and cooking equipment and dozens of years of expertise) there's a finite number of options for a speed meal, and she explores them reasonably well.

IDK, maybe it's a relativity thing - I hate her less than I hate Sandra Lee or Giada...

I can't stand Emeril's "BAM" and "Kick it up a notch". I know these made him popular, but I can't stand them :)
