A lot of your chefs I don't know although I have seen Rachel Ray.
I love Ainsley Harriot, we saw him cook at a Good Food and Wine show 2 years ago, Curtis Stone was there too (he is Australian!) I like Gordon Ramsay although I wouldn't like to get on the wrong side of him. I also like Rick Stein.

I would imagine that it's the same way you'd spell onyowns? Haha!!

I love his way with words and his Southern Cajiun accent!! I wonder if he has any cookbooks out.

There was still yet another one- James Beard. Sadly, he passed on though in the early '80's. He was more like the Southwestern cuisine type, much like Bobby Flay is today.

Still another one - Graham Kerr who hosted The Galloping Gourmet and another show in the early '90s based on light low-cal cuisine, like the shows Low-Carb and Loving It and Calorie Commando.

I learned a lot from watching Jeff Smith, but Justin Wilson always seemed a bit dirty to me. He wasn't very careful about the kitchen towel he used and I wouldn't have eaten anything he cooked, but some of the recipes looked ok. I can't watch anyone cook who isn't as Julia Child always said "impeccably clean".

Bon Appittit!!

That was her signature ending for each and every show she did. Haha!!

She used to sip some wine on her show The French Chef.

Yes, she was very clean in the kitchen! That was one of the many things that I liked about her.

Well Corey, now, especially with the last two, you're getting to my list of most annoying.

Why is that? Don't you want to know who was who back then?

Michael Smith all the way. I just love the way he works in the kitchen and how he likes things to be simple rather than just appearing simple.

I also enjoy Giada and David Rocco.

Graham Kerr did his Galloping Gourmet here in the UK before he emigrated to the US. So when his American series was advertised here, I wanted to watch it.... I couldn't STAND it! Changing all his dishes to low fat/low cal took at least HALF the taste out of every dish for me.

That move probably saved his life and that of his wife also. They both had very serious health problems.
