If you had a cooking show, who would you be like?

If I had a cooking show I think I would be like Paula Deen. I cook alot of fried foods (fried chicken, fried pork chops. etc) something simple and delish.... I like to put something in the oven and let it cook all day. When it comes to sweets anything once again that is homemade simple and sweet. I guess you can call me awanna be Southener.. :) . Who would you be like?

I would probably be like Alton Brown. I love his scientific approach. I also love how most of the things he makes are made with the home cook in mind. What I mean by that is he pretty much uses ingredients that are easy to find and usually not very expensive.

I do not think I will be like anyone on TV.

All my food cooking would be hot and spicy foods. Bringing you to new heights on how to use a hot pepper. Even deserts will not be spared.

I like Alton Brown's approach, and his show, but if I had my own show, I would need to come up with my own way of doing things.

Has anyone here seen a British chat show called "The Kumars at No. 42"?

Doing to a cooking show what Sanjeev Bhaskar did to interviews would be pretty cool.

This sounds like a certain red-headed NYC Chef.

I might as well be like Tyler Florence, considering he steals my recipes!

I don't know if I would emulate anyone in particular. If I had a cooking show, I would like to have musicians, friends, comedians, fellow chefs, cocktails, chat, with cooking as a main focus.

It would have be entertaining, fun and a little crazy, with lots of spontaneous things going on.

Probably wouldn't be for the young kids, but I would have a blast!!!

Patterson died a couple of years ago, she was the dark haired lady. Clarissa is cooking somewhere in England but not on TV here. BTW you remind me of someone I used to know, did you ever live in Los Alamitos or Long Beach??

Close but not 100%. On his cooking shows he does not use peppers 100% of the time. My show will :twisted: :twisted:

I enjoy Alton Brown's explanations, but he's a little kooky for me...

I always liked the Frugal Gourmet, Jeff Smith (anybody remember him?). He was always talking about the importance of food in connection with friends and family. He would usually do fairly simple, straight-forward recipes and show really nice ways to present them (I like presentation).

Of the modern TV chefs, I guess I like Tyler Florence. He instills the sense of "you can do this" better than many of them. I also like Sara Moulton's style... "act like you meant to do that"... I think my show would be a cross between hers and that "Nekkid" Chef dude... I like his enthusiasm and humor.
