I have a new love in my life and his name is Hubert Keller,Secrets of a Chef. This guy is a true chef and his recipes are soooo mouth watering. He's on the PBS Create channel, not sure if he's on the FoodTV network. Check this guy out and just watch what he does.
I've seen Keller before...he's "eh". I like a couple of his twists on burgers though.

The PBS Create channel has alot of good shows.

For me it would depend on what we were having.
Italian - Nick Stellino
French - Jacques Pepin
Southern - The Neeley's
Northern - Ina Garten
Anything else, definitely Emeril

Ohhhh I LOVE Nick Stellino. I used to watch him on PBS Create all the time and suddenly he was gone. Do you know if he's on TV anywhere else??

He's on WLIW or PBS sometimes. I can't tollerate him though. He talks to you like you're a 10 year old. "Follow the fingers..."

That's just for the beginners who don't know how to cook. I think it's a great learning tool to show the stages of how things are supposed to look like

See?? Another reason I love Seattle so much.

I've made his recipes and they all turn out sooooo very good. I miss him and his "walking fingers."

I have always been fascinated watching him because everything looks so easy and second nature when he does it. Also, he is explaining every step of the way. More of a teacher than a personality.
I didnt think you thought that Andy , I just wanted to make it clear my thoughts and intentions.

I used to love to watch Jeff Smith and Julia taught me how to cook. Jeff, unfortunatly had some personal issues that I think killed him in the end
