Which Celebrity TV Chef is actually the BEST CHEF?

So ISOLATING COOKING ABILITIES ONLY, forget about who you like, who you think is good looking, their tv persona, whether you like the format of their tv show etc, who is actually the best chef out of all the celebrity TV chefs ? (Gordon Ramsay, all the Iron Chefs on Iron Chef America, Jaime Oliver, the Masterchef judges etc etc). Can be a TV cooking personality from any tv show anywhere in the world.

Put it this way, who would you want to cook for you if you were having an important Anniversary dinner ? Just cook for you behind closed doors. You won't get to meet them :)

This is a very interesting question, and on any given day of the week I might give you a different answer! I have seen Bobby Flay and Tyler Florence demonstrations live on separate occasions, and several interviews with other chefs on various television spots, and most of them insist that Emeril is the real deal and can REALLY cook.

I'm going with Tyler (today). Now if I could have input with the menu, I'd love for Mario, Emeril, Bobby or Rocco to feed me all the other days of the week. Alton Brown or Guy Fieri would be a HOOT to share a table with tho, don't you think?

Who would YOU choose?

Batalli would make me happy, but if they were cooking for me in an important occassion. I would want Giada. She went to a french culinary institute and with her recipes inspired by the food her grandfather used to make in Italy, I would take it any day. Also for his ability and use of bacon, Iron chef Simon. And who wouldn't love a meal cooked by Neely's, they are a different type of cookin all togeather, but definately good at it. I like to get messy and eat ribs.

Oh my ... I almost posted that Giada's family recipes resonate but I'm pretty tired of her chest (and nope, not a prude)! Not a Neely fan either. Totally agree on Chef Symon, but my husband can't handle his quirky giggle. He has a new restaurant in Detroit and my brother lives in Westland. I have GOT to get there!

Her chest is one of my favorite parts!!! lol, but I definately agree about chef symon's laugh. It is weird that's for sure. And I don't like Sandra Lee's recipes or style really at all, but her story of success is amazing. If you havent read her book I really reccommend it. And I really would love Chef Bourdain to cook me a meal. Wow, he is awesome. I met him at an event he spoke at i our town and he is just a cool guy.

I would have to say ................................drumroll please!

The Neeleys. With the caveat that Ms. Neeley gets on my nerves, but I like the style of cooking.

Jamie Oliver probably as he would be a good laugh.
Even though his tongue is too big for his mouth...
