come to think of it, its actually hard to decide since that each of them has their own specialty, and each of us has our own tastes. still love italian thats why i like giada and mario :)

If we're talking about who can turn out the best meal, I'd have to give it to Jaques Pepin. I don't know that he's ever actually run a kitchen though.

Emeril runs some very nice kitchens, but he over spices for my taste. Subtlety is not a word in his vocabulary. He's got my vote for the most entertaining celebrity chef though.

Using the requirements that the Celebrity Chef is a true chef who has actually run a successful kitchen, and is entertaining enough to watch on television or read, my vote is for the Big Man himself, Paul Prudhomme.

I would have to pick Tom Colicchio. After reading "Think like a Chef" I can see he has real passion for good food made with the best and freshest ingredients. I just wish we could see him cook instead of just being the judge

If you don't know Ina, you shouldn't put thoughts in her head that you don't know are there.

She's actually a very kind and sweet person, and I don't think she looks down at anyone.

FWIW, many of the personalities cited in this thread are not chefs at all. They are TV cooking personalities. I wonder if that is what the OP meant, or did they mean Chefs in the strict sense of the word?
Wine is the food that completes the meal.
