Who is your favorite food personality, a TV food personality, cookbook author, etc?

Mine favorite would have to be Julia Child, least favorite is probably Emeril.

My favorite would be Alton Brown so much to learn from him, I love the way he explain the history of foods.

Least favorite is Emeril, except "Bam Bam" he has nothing, I can cook elbow to elbow with him.

Jaques Pepin is good. I like the shows he did with Julia Child. Both great cooks.

My favorite food personality? Can anyone guess?
Oh My GRAVY... Rachael Ray! LOL I also love Guy Fieri...They are just two really down to earth people who cook NOMRAL FOOD LOL I love to watch them...

Who can't I stand? Martha Stewart... I know she isn't just a food personality but she is so annoying and stuck up... I don't like to even listen to her talk...and seriously... unless you have more hours in a day to do nothing better than to throw a cocktail party with exotic flowers, place cards made out of vintage card stock with the added touch of hand pressed flowerpetals, or to make the elaborate foods with a list of expensive spices you don't have handy in your kitchen cupboard... what good is she?

Love Alton Brown and Guy Fieri. THey're both so "out there". I like Paula Deen, too, and Florence Tyler, oh, and Nigella.

I used to love Rachel Ray, but she's been so over-exposed so to speak. I'm with you on Martha Stewart, skbs. I didn't like her before she was a crook. There was just something about her. Emeril....not my favorite.

Yeah Martha doesn't give off the "warm fuzzies" not matter how hard she tries. Too elitist.

I think Rachael Ray is just Delish!
She is so funny and perky all the time.

I love how quick and easy her recipes are... for a mom with small kids she has great ideas that work well with my schedule and the kids tastebuds... of course I need to figure out how to cut the fat in a lot of the things she makes... but I do that with most things anyway.

Oh, and speaking of Delish... that is how my FOUR year old describes a food she likes now! LOL
