I think he'd be great to hang out with, but even he says he's not a great chef, only a good one.

I'd love for Jacques Pepin to cook for me. I bet it would be fantastic.

Funny thing is snip they hate each other but they do have something in common.......closing restaurants.
Gary Rhodes is the one I listen to.

Hey, don't be dissing my Chefs
I don't really think I listen to anyone, I've yet to make a recipe that I don't change a bit at least!
Gary Rhodes is ok but he annoys me a little :P

I guess I'm only free to judge one, and haven't seen him on tv lately. Can't even remember his name, but decades ago we used to go to the Trellis in old Williamsburg, VA. It was the first place we ate some things like baby greens salads. He was mostly famous for his deserts, and neither of us are desert people, but his meals were to die for. He became a TV chef years after we left the area, mostly for a show I think called "Death by Chocolate" or something. But it seems to me he did a great one about burgers. It is funny that he became famous for food I never ate there. (and I ate there whenever I could afford to). But he did do the local produce thing really well, and the dishes were all to die for. Marcel De .... I'll have to go googling.

yup, that's him alright. I could get Marcel de something! I even tried to get from there to his whole name on line! Loved his restaurant, and I'm not into celebrity restaurants. Of course it wasn't a celebrity restaurant when I frequented the place and I don't know if he's even still connected with it.

Oh, well, hopefully Survivor season will get here soon. Oops, not really a cooking show...
