It is amazing to me as a Memphis area resident and pork canibal(One pig eating another one!) how popularized (Is that a word? Is now!) the Neelys have become. Their food is far from being the best Q in town.

I agree about all of the stuff they do on TV. One show of them will hold me for a lifetime.

Being old, I really got my interest in cooking fueled by Julia Child, especially in her younger years. I also enjoy Burt Wolf's food and travel on PBS.

I like Paula Dean, Bobby Flay, Guy Fieri (my favorite), and some of Alton Brown.

I do not care for Giada, Sandra Lee, Ina whatever her name is and the new chick that use to or still cooks with Mario Batali...

Mario Batali's recipes always confuse me for some reason. I do like Guy's show and I think he has really pulled in a lot of the younger men which is good for the younger women!

My favorite is "Barefoot Contessa". Her recipes always come out perfect for me, although her laugh sort of drives me nuts. I also like Giada. I've really gotten into the show, "Chopped". The ingredients they make the contestants use is very interesting. I don't really like Bobby Flay and I can't stand Rachael.

My favorite, though she's not on any more, is Sara Moulton. She used to do Cooking Live, and she really taught me how to cook. Now I enjoy Ina Garten, and my favorite newer show is Anne Burrell's Secrets of a Restaurant Chef. I gag when I see Sandra Lee, and can't change the channel fast enough when Paula or the Neely's come on. Emeril Lagasse is the most overrated chef ever; how that man made an empire out of "Bam" is a mystery to me.

Rachel Ray, I was trying to think of her name earlier. I sort of liked her when she first came out, but now, she just irritates me! Just TOO something...

Ah, Julia Child I don't really remember seeing, but Burt Wolfe, I do remember seeing several of his shows!! Very interesting.

Georgia, I agree with you on Emeril. No way is he a chef...a mediocre cook is what I would call him. And all the salt he uses...ugh!

Oh boy do I remember Julia Child! Any one remember Graham Kerr and the Galloping Gourmet? I was making bread a little while ago, opened a drawer to get my dough scraper out and I pulled out one with Graham's name on it. Took me back a few years!

I used to love Graham Kerr as the Galloping Gourmet. He was hilarious. A few years ago I saw some newer shows, where he cooks with very little fat, salt, etc, I believe, because his wife had health issues. It just wasn't the same.
