Thank you!

I knew that the word Road was in there somewhere.

I like Alton Brown's SHOW, but I wouldn't wouldn't include him in my Top 5 TV 'Chefs'.

I like:
Bobby Flay
Giada De Laurentiis
Jamie Oliver
Emeril
Rachel Ray (is she a 'chef'?... I guess)

Favorite (celebrity) chef - Wolfgang Puck - from the first time I sampled his cooking at Spago.



Favorite TV celebrity chef(s):

Giada and Mario (I love Italian).

Ina - Everything she prepares looks like a party.

Rachael - For everyday quick-cooking ideas.

Not sure if you count these two as celebrities but I love their cookbooks and recipes......Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins (of Silver Palate fame), also Jeff Smith (the Frugal Gourmet), Rachel Ray, Bobby Flay and Emeril Lagasse.

Julia Child
As far as the television celebrity chefs go, all the rest stand on her broad shoulders. I remember trying to watch "The French Chef" and and scribble notes at the same time in the days before Beta-max or VCR. (I know y'all think I just make cornbread and grits.)

Jeff Smith
Two decades later The Frugal Gourmet brought me a little closer to the present state of affairs.

Then came Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali. I can barely watch Emeril anymore but Mario still informs and entertains me.

She's going to have to hang in there a lot longer to be included with the others but, if you're interested in Latin American cooking, I recommend Daisy Martinez who has a show called "Daisy Cooks."

Jeff Smith was good until he became involved in that sex scandle with a teenager who worked with him backstage on his show.

There was also another one - Justin Wilson who is from Louisiana, if he's still alive. He used to make great real down-home Southern-style dishes! He had a show on PBS as well!

I also forgot about Wolfgang Puck. He just opened a restaurant at Logan Airport!

I'd forgotten about him. Don't think he's among the torch bearers of the genre but I did like his show. How do spell ga-ron-tee?

That was a shame. I always liked his passion, almost bordering on reverence for the preparation and presentation of his food and its place in our social and familial structure. He was really never heard from again, even though we really know very little of the fact behind the scandal. tsk
