There are a number of chefs I would like to have prepare me a meal. I will pick one that I don't think anyone else has mentioned yet.

Ming Tsai.

Yes, yes, yes ... I really miss East Meets West. And he was so informative! I'd love to eat his Peking Duck!

There are 2 or 3 dozen people right here on DC that I would much rather cook (with) for me than any of those outstanding folks on TV.

To choose one ---- Lagasse

Ming prepared dinner for Suzanne and me a couple of years ago...

...at his restaurant, Blue Ginger...

...well, indirectly. He wasn't actually there.

It was top notch!

We got my parents a gift certificate to Blue Ginger a few years ago Andy. They loved it. Some things did not live up to the hype, but overall they were very impressed. I do not think Ming was there that night either.

Gordan Ramsey, great chef and easy on the eyes, if I do say so myself.

I love Ina Garten too, and Martha.

What do people think about Anthony Bourdain, I know he is one of my idlols, we saw him speak and he really knows his stuff, and his passion for food and travel is amazing. I would love for him to cook for me and talk to him

I have never actually seen Anthony Bourdain cook anything so I can not say I would like to have him cook for me, but if I were to take a guess I would think he would be up there for me. I love his personality and I would love to eat a meal with him, no matter who was cooking. I think he would be awesome to hang out with.

Put it this way, who would you want to cook for you if you were having an important Anniversary dinner ?
Mario Batali, Tom Colicchio, and Gordon Ramsay. Any of the non-restaurant "chefs" can't even be compared and shouldn't even be even mentioned in the same sentence.

If he was still continuing on the same path as he was while at Union Pacific, I would include Rocco DiSpirito on that list. He was a certified genius while he was there, turning out some of the most innovative and delicious food in the country.

I would party with Tony Bourdain in a hot minute - he is COOL! I love his show.
