My Chef friend says Bobby Flay is a jerk. I am not quoting him.

It's funny how people are and their opinions. I have heard everything bad about all chefs. My mom couldn't stand Julia Child, but I loved her!!! I like Emeril and Rachel Ray because they have enthusiasm when they cook... that is a good thing to have fun while you cook!

I just started watching the TV cooks a few months ago (again).. I used to watch them with my then wife in the "old days"...

I think overall my most "favorite" was ol Jeff Smith (the Frugal Gourmet).. probably because he cooked in a way that made sense to me and I could follow his recipes and things turned out fairly good. (He's here in Seattle.. or was a few years ago after he "retired" because of the scandals... I saw him at the Pike Street Market here in a wheelchair.. sad.)

Undoubtedly, in my opinion, the most accomplished and/or "best" cook on the air is Jacques Pepin but I haven't seen him in years except for a few guest appearances with Julia.. and of course Julia is/was THE "queen"...

Far as the current group on foodtv... I learn more from Alton Brown than anyone so I'd vote for him. Emeril has just too much "ham" for me even though I can learn from him.. If I could turn off the sound and not have to listen to the "bamm" and his 100's of "he's what I'm gonna do's" per program and all the "notch" stuff... but then I wouldn't know what he's doing.. so I skip his show.

I already had my say about Paula Deen in another thread and got myself into trouble by commenting on her "southern accent" and I promised I wouldn't do that again.. so I'll pass on her.

A also really enjoy Michael Chiarello because he also cooks the way I want to be able to.. I don't think he owns a teaspoon or tablespoon measuring device (well they are necessary for baking I guess, but I don't bake anything.. yet)... and he seems to be casual yet effective.

I'll take Sandra Lee over Racheal any day... But I guess I'm prone to favor foxy blonds :)

Jamie Oliver is fun to watch and kinda cooks like I'd like to also.. but I can't understand half of what he says.. and I lived in London for a few months too so go halfway used to their slurring their words and mumbling... but he's fun to watch.

i liked Julia Child, and Two Fat Ladies was an awesome show. i'm sad the one passed away.
i like wolfgang, or did till they changed his show, and tony bourdain. he might be a scrawny guy with crooked teeth and bad manners, but a cook's tour and his books were pretty good.
rachel ray, now that she is more comfortable with the camera, has a few good shows. but she's just so nerdy!!! she giggles wayyyyyy too much.
