Who is your fave celebrity chef?

My personal favourite is Jamie Oliver, he really exudes the joy of cooking with his fun-loving spirit, he is creative with his ideas I saw many of his innovations which seemed a little strange but somehow worked. Also his "boy next door" appearance which doesn't resemble any sort of chef sort of gives you the impression "well if he can do that certainly I can too...." Also when I was little I loved Graham Kerr of Galloping Gourmet fame...
I have been also intrigued by Mario Batali, I haven't read his book or seen his show, but saw some of his recipes on the internet and looks very interesting...

I like Jamie, though I haven't seen him in a while.

Paula Dean is my Favorite.
She cooks the food that I love!
She's not afraid to use butter and I
LOVE that!
