Indeed.... He was a lush! And was well-known for it here - just like Keith Floyd, who sadly won't make old bones as he hasn't changed his lifestyle

I enjoyed your description of "won't make old bones". I've never heard that and it is quite apt in such cases.

Wow, this is a tough question, I love so many chefs! Right now I'd have to give my vote to Gordon Ramsey and Anthony Bourdain, not only is it their cooking that appeals to me, but I like their distinct, no nonsense personalities

I really like Anthony Bourdain. He is crude, crass, rude and I love every second of it.

What I really admire about him though is his willingness to try things that others might find wrong. He does not do it as much for the shock value as he does out of respect for the food and the people who eat it.

For me, it's a toss-up between Emeril and Paula Deen, although I also like Mario, Giada, Michael Chiarrello and Ina Gartner.

There are also two other famous Italian celebrity chefs.

One is Lidia Matticchio and the other one (can't remember her name) does the cooking show Chio Italiano. Both are on PBS.

Does anyone know the 2nd person's name? She has a very heavy accent and she mainly makes dishes that feature dough with them.
