Are you sure those belong to Bobby Flay? There's no "Red" in the title of his Mesa Grill here in New York.

I would love to cook with any of them too. But I think Morimoto or Batali would teach me skills that I don't even know exist yet. I Think my favorite chef is Mr. Morimoto. He is daring, and knows how to tackle just about any food out there. I have to admit that bobby Flay impresses me in that he puts together some very good dishes on his Throwdown show. Challenging others who are specialists with a certain dish is gutsy.

I've always enjoyed watching Steve Raichlen (BBQ U) and Mark Bittman. If I had to choose once chef I would say Bobby Flay. He seems so versatile and comes up with interesting twists on traditional dishes.

I can say its Mario Batalli. I mean, he has beaten almost everyone who battled him in Iron Chef. I love his style, he does not let pressure get to him, and his food really really looks yummy!

The more I thought about this the harder it got to come up with an answer. There are SO many that make great food and that I have learned a lot from and watch all the time it is hard to separate the person (persona) from the food/culinary skills.

If they were going to cook for me and I was not going to be in there with them cooking or watching or have any interaction with them the top 5 would be:

Jamie Oliver (I have almost all his cook books)
The Two Fat Ladies (I have almost all their cook books too and the DVDs)
Gordon Ramsay
Ina Garten
Jeff Smith

I caught Ina's show the other afternoon where she was cooking a breakfast for friends and when she said "good quality chicken sausage" the guest asked "how do you know what's a good quality sausage?". Her response was basically that she buys several kinds of and item at once, cooks them or cooks with them and then finds out what she likes best and that is what she used" . So bottom line it sounds like what ever tastes good to you.

i think she means the lowbrow cook shouldn't make her stuff if their budget limits them to lesser brands, dave you are so kind , doesn't sound like that to me.

Don't let it bug you babe, i sense a little of that about her, but, heck she's just like you and me. She has to eat, sleep and cook just like we do. A little more money or a lot more who the heck cares.We know when someone likes us it's not for our "things"
