yeah, but we're here now.

Julia and Jacques and Julia and Jacques and Julia and Jacques.

also Lidia, Marcella Hazan, Lorenza de 'Medici and Emeril.

FWIW, Alton Brown, Rachael Ray, Sandra Lee are not chefs. Neither is Giada, cute as she is and as much as she knows. A chef is one who runs a commercial kitchen. They never have.

Julia wasn't a chef, either, but she's the "Grandma" of all the rest, and her show was called "The French Chef" so she gets an honorary designation!

Regardless of if she's a chef or not, Paula Deen.

I love southern food and she's very charismatic. Seems like the kind of person you'd want to be around. I really dislike most of the cocky, jerk chefs. I understand that you can't be a pushover as a profession and confidence is necessary to succeed, but I don't want to watch them on TV.
