I can't stand watching Emeril, and he's definitely tops in the marketing department, but I sure like his food. He's got my vote just for that.

I hate how on emeril live everyone would clap when he added garlic or sprinkled salt. It was so corny and hard to watch

Let's remember, the OP didn't ask you to bash the chefs you don't like!

Bashing is not tolerated here.

The request was for you to name the the TV chef you think is the best chef (not personality contest or beauty contest winner). Take the rest to PMs if you want to discuss it further.

Let's stick to that.

My choice is Jacques Pepin.

It's been debated whether Alton Brown is a chef, but it matters little to me. I would love to have him prepare a special meal for me...as long as he stayed and dined with me. I'm a huge "why does this happen?" kind of person, so a meal prepared and eaten with him I think would be a great time.

I would take that opportunity to pick his brain and enjoy his nutty sense of humor. I practice no uni-tasking (as best I can) in my kitchen and, as a result, have discovered additional uses for some of my tools.

The food, I'm sure, would be delicious. I've prepared many of his dishes and liked every one.

Thanks Mav, I forgot my old shows like Fruggy, and Justin Wilson. Jeff Smith was an incredible teacher, and Justin was most down to earth cooking program personality I have ever seen and funny too.

I would love to eat one of Jaime's meals, especially Italian. I find him very difficult to understand sometimes.

Anybody remember Kathleen Dahlmans? I would love for her to come help me lose the 70 lbs she lost when she became a fat spa chef! I always enjoyed the show Cooking Thin because it was practical solutions that really helped people. Her recipes always work too!

LOL!, Katie.
I'd like to take a road trip with him and crew. I loved everyone of those places he visited in both series.
I like the explanations too.

thanks for the interesting replies people

You definitely do not need to limit your answers to the food network. Any major tv personality from around the world would qualify :)

In that case.......

Hands down, I would like Julia Child to prepare my meal. Yes, I know she's gone, but I can dream.

She could boil a cardboard box and serve it with distilled water and I'd be in heaven. Can't even begin to imagine how wonderful the conversation would be.
