Graham Kerr (spelling?)  The Galloping Gourmet.  I used to love him when I was little.

post #22 of 39

 i remember him and Julia Chiles main lesson it's OK to drink while you cook!

post #23 of 39

I doubt that Julia was the first to say it, but it is often attributed to her, and I agree?

 

"I love to cook with wine, and sometimes I put it in the food".  Or some such statement.

 

Who could argue with that?

 

I liked the shows she did with Jacques Pepin!

 

Good luck and good smoking.

you mean chef pepin?  or jose hernandez  he was very big down here on univision  the spanish station   that guy was always hopped up on  the cuban coffee!

I used to like the Frugal Gourmet until he became a pedophile.

Justin Wilson was a Fav, I just wonder why they don't run his shows up North, Y'all Louisiana guy's already know how to make that stuff!!!..I agree Giada is a Beautiful woman and some of her recipe are interesting. I crack up at the female perspective of my Cheffie Daughter's," she has too many Teeth ", and they frequently comment, " Just because you take a Recipe and put Tomato Sauce on it don't make it Italian! "...How about the Black Hat Chef? I forget his name. And in the late 80's in NY/NJ there was an Italian Chef that sang Opera as he cooked and would say, " when and Italian girl can flip a Frittata...It's time for her to Marry! ". Some of the best techniques I learned as a kid was watching Great Chef's of the East, West, South and World...REAL COOKING not just BS, " Housewife on a Budget/Get it done Quick and Easy " Recipes...JJ

Now I really liked Justin and did learn alot from him. This Steve Riechian has a good set-up alot of grills all in a pretty circle but has the guy ever cooked anything thou. I mean he throws alittle flip itty flop on this grill and comes back an flop on that grill and your don't and don't forget to wipe your grill down with a towel and vegetable oil either. I think that he is a joke and I would feel like that guy on clockwork orange (where they pinned his eyes open) watching him grill anything. Now I did also like the Galloping Gourmet many mnay years ago he was funny and enteraining to. I think alot of folks liked Julia childs for her accent and she did make real food to if you like that french poop. After all do you really like french food????????

OMG JJ.  I was just thinking back about that Black Hat Chef guy the other day.  ROTF.gif

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Guy is a hoot to watch.

 

Bobby Flay used to be SLIGHTLY entertaining.

 

I watched a BBQ show once with Myron..... I take that back. I watched about 15 minutes of a show then changed channels.

I wish I could get that 15 minutes back!

 

I like watching Rachel and have tried several recipes. They ended up as good as they looked on TV.

 

 

 

Giada........ Nice presentation. Need I say more?  drool.gif

 

 

How about a fight to the death option in the next poll?

 

I would watch a fight to the death between Myron and Bobby Flay.... IF..... and only IF the winner is immediately killed!

I can't speak for the man's inteligence...BUT...I have never seen a more Arrogant, Cocky Man in my life!...And his attitude if he doesn't get a walk, " Oh the Judges here don't know S#!T from Shinola! "...What a Cry Baby!...He may be the Biggest Dollar winner in the big shows, but what's up with that attitude?...I don't compete so I can only go by what I have seen on TV...JJ

Interesting from down hereaussieflag.gif.Rachel Ray on cable puts me to sleep, Bobby Flay only saw him & that Battali guy on Iron Chef.Giada has her followers but they are all  food network only.  Regular  TV here has our homegrown chefs who apart from Curtis Stone wouldnt be on your radar,but we do get some great TV made by our ethnic TV  station that involves families in their own kitchens+ chefs + providores giving a quick overview of the cooking of a particular country.Called Food Safari. Rick Stein is a personal favourite who divides his time between here & UK.Great travel & food at once.He has done France, the Mediteranean,Asia, & just completed Spain. Before that 4 series on seafood. He got his TV start from the great Raymond Floyd who drank whatever the local booze was wherever he was filming & lots of it.Hugh Fearnly Whittingstall great TV,farming ,fishing,cooking all in the one show.Jamie Oliver hugely popular here bit young for me sometimes but its hard not to like him for taking on hard stuff that he doesnt have to do.

Good Point Moikel

 

I prefer to watch the local chefs on the local channels.  We have a lot of local food programs.  Only thing is that I am usually throwing stuff at the TV set when I do.   Ever notice how the experts just do things wrong when they make the dishes you grew up with!   HeHe    

 

I bet they are constantly trying to be a bit different then the other guy so they make changes in there technique or recipe.  Just wondering?   Maybe it's my 200 plus years of ancestors living down here that were doing it wrong the entire time  icon14.gif

My favorite chef is Google.

C'mon JJ?  After all these years?

 

How many arrogant chefs have you come across?   pot.gif

 

I would agree that Mixon has his own particular way of doing it. biggrin.gif

 

Good luck and good smoking.

The Japanese original Iron Chef was a hoot,I liked the USA version but I  always cheer for the challenger!!

Hugh Fearnly-Whitingstall has a a series called The River Cottage filmed in Dorset in England & at times other parts of Britain. In a NUTSHELL  he goes back to Dorset on the coast to a small acreage & grows,raises everything,pigs,sheep,goats,cattle,veg .He also hunts,fish's ,forages & enlists the help of the locals, a retired butcher(Pops!) ,poultry breeders, local fisherman & gamekeepers so he can make a living. No actors just regular country folk.

He has upgraded to a bigger farm now & runs a cooking school & restaurant.He has taken on a series of bigger issues,sustainable fishing, supermarkets etc.He also does road trips looking at cooking & product in other parts of UK.

I like to see people cooking in their own kitchens naturally. Rustic ,hearty foods not foams & sprinkles pretty garnish's. I cant stand watching people change things for the sake of change. I've seen "chefs" who have crap knife skills, a pretentious ,arrogant approach to viewers & not a lot else.Dont want to watch them,dont want to eat their food.

On a lighter note if Luke Nyguens Vietnam cooking/travel show comes your way its worth a look.
