Talking

A physical fight or a cook off? If it's a cook off, my vote goes for Alton! I love that man...

For a cookoff my vote would go to Emeril. I much prefer to watch Alton, but his food does not measure up. He has the science of what he is doing down pat and would kick Emerils butt in a trivia or science contest, but when it comes right down to it, Emeril is a better chef.

If you're talking about a fist fight, why would anyone care? It's like apples and oranges. I imagine Emeril is several years older and he's obviously a weight class or two heavier. And since neither is a fighter, it wouldn't be of much interest to me. I like to watch fighters fight, and chefs cook.

I do like to ponder the cookoff aspect. While I like Alton Brown for his scientific approach to cooking, there's no question that Emeril is a better chef. There's room for both on the Food Network, since I think Brown explains the basics very well, and Emeril is an artist with his pairing of flavor and form.
