O.T. for a sec.

What the freak happened to Nigella? I just realized that she isn't on anymore. I knew when they tried to make her into some money saving,run of the mill practical cook that she was out of her elements. That woman had a lot of class and it showed in her cooking.

Paula's food looks real and appetizing for the most part. I don't want any of those nouvelle cuisine chefs over who make a tiny piece of fish piled on a lettuce leaf drizzled with raspberry sauce. What the heck is up with that?

Give me real food with real portions.

90% of what they cook on programs like Top Chef are disgusting. Mix strange ingredients and the judges love it...one time I played the Top Chef game and the stranger and worse the combinations the better points I got.

Does Burt Wolf cook or just talk about it? Seems like he'd be a good guy to eat with and talk about all the places he visited on his PBS shows.

Morimoto

Emeril

Sara Molten

Mario Batali but I must observe him showering before allowing him to prepare my food. He is an excellent chef but he often looks unkempt.

Second choice would be Laura Calder from the "French Food at Home" show. I think she exudes charm and elegance. She always seems to be so relaxed while making such yummy food.

Holiday meals are all about family and friends. Why would I want a stranger to show-up at my house and cook something for us?

Our meals are all about personal preference with a special ingredient - love. We don't always get it right, but we always have a great time .
