The Pioneer Woman is A. I'd pick Gordon too, can't stand RR and TPW is not far behind her.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Same here.

I was born and raised in North Central Texas, cattle and oil country. Lot of the outside action and scenery from Pioneer Woman remind me of home. Some of the recipes are good too. Just donít much care to listen to her.

Donít much care for Gordon or Rachael either.

DW wants to do her birthday bash in Las Vegas - so something of Ramsay's is on the horizon. probably not the Hell's Kitchen thing - that's 'for the experience' from what I can gather. we were in London and wanted to go to one of Ramsay's haunts - hard to get in - that was just as the revelation about his "central kitchen" came out so we skipped the effort.



I was researching LV 'celeb restaurants' - the news / reviews are not all that wowie... Emeril and RR took similar paths - early on I enjoyed their shows but then then went all Hollywood and it went from info/edu to 'how garish can I go?'


Emeril Fish House is good tho - from yrs back experience...

The reason I chose RR is because I was duly impressed by her recipes for both a croque madame and monsieur, which reminds me....

Ree Drummond has good recipes, she taught me the wonders of the crash hot potato as well as cute gun shaped cookies once made for my eldest son whilst he was an LEO, city of Akron.

Ramsay .. smh.. too fussy..
If we're talkin Brit cooks, Oliver and another guy whose name escapes me at the moment would be my pick.. he who gave brilliant advice on jazzing up a humble can of baked beans with butter and ground pepper..

I've made any number of Ree Drumond's stuff and it turned out quite good.
I was shocked the first time I saw her tv how - her recipes I can do, but I'm unable to get along with the personality....

Gave her show another try this afternoon for a few minutes. No change in my initial impression.

Anyone remember Nathlie Dupree?

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen one of her shows. I don’t remember now exactly what she says about her procedures but I do remember not liking it.
Something along the lines of don’t do it the way I do, do it the way I say???

I remember Natalie. It used to disgust me when she would stick her hands into meat or dough and she never took her giant diamond ring off. All the food would be stuck in and around it and she would just peel it off and mix it in. Made me nauseous.

I've noticed that GR really only uses the foul language when speaking to professional cooks who should know better or do better than the things they are doing or not doing as the case may be. You really can't blame him in those cases. I'll admit that I tend toward the same language and attitude with people that should know better regardless of what profession they are in. I have no patience for people who apparently don't care or are idiots.

I miss Roxanne and hope she and Lou are doing well.
To think a pro chef was actually a member of this forum and went big still never ceases to amaze me.

I doubt Gordon Ramsay was ever that harsh.
Every chef seems to have their act, I believe that was his. Loud mouth swearing and all.
I knew a person from Birmingham when I lived in England who knew him well.
Said he wasn't like that at all.

Wow, this is the most lively discussion thread we've had in ages!

We do love to talk about celebrity chefs, don't we, LOL!

And we manage to express our opinions without getting nasty to each other. Kinda rare on forums!

Doc, can you do another "pick one" with three more celebrity chefs with their photos? Or did you just get that image off the net?
