Carol, yes he is the one that drank while cooking. I really enjoyed him and his spurtles! I still have two of mine and would be lost without them.

Alton Brown has taught me a lot with his Good Eats show.

Alton is a mixed blessing. Sometimes there's just too much information there, like going to school!

LOVED Graham Kerr as the Galloping Gourmet. I couldn't believe the quantities of butter and wine he used (and drank!!), but back then no one cared! I also didn't enjoy his healthier show as much.

Alton Brown is the best there is on FN. What a treat.

Guy Fieri is at the complete other end of the spectrum. I think he is a hack, and find him very offensive. I wrote a letter to Scripps (who own FN) and didn't even get a form letter back.

I do like Ina Garten and Bobby Flay.

From the old days: Julia Child, Galloping Gourmet, Two Old Fat Ladies, and Cooking Cheap. Those are the ones I learned to cook from.

I like the older shows from Yan Can Cook also.

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!

Some of the best were Julia Child and Jacques Pepin. Both together and solo
Before Julia was Dione Lacas (sp)
James Beard wasn't a slouch either.
Also the Cajun guy with suspenders.
