I'd personally love to hear from Grant Achatz, specifically on moleculer gastronomy in the home.

Any of the great Irish chefs!

Jamie Oliver

I support his philosophy and The Food Revolution

Not to mention that he's such a cutie patootie!

Myron Mixon or Johnny Trigg or both. I love cooking of all kinds but at the heart of it all I love REAL BBQ and these gentleman are the master of the trade and have proven it time and time again. To absorb some of that knowledge, the little nuances of real BBQ would be awesome. On a side not if I could not speak with either of them then I would undoubtedly want to hang out with Zac Brown. Aside from the fact that I just think that would be an incredible experience I have heard he is quite the cook himself. So a cooking challenge would definitely have to take place.

Jacque Pepin would be great, he loves to talk technique, and he loves sharing his knowledge.

 

I had the great fortune to meet him a few times and even got to hang out with him after a cooking demo he did in Scottsdale AZ, he is a true gentleman.

Don't think I saw Hugh Acheson on here yet... I love his focus on keeping things local, seasonal and bearing the community in mind. He seems very grounded. I second Grant Achatz and Stephanie Izard.

ruhlman

2. Christoforos Peskias - Greece

 

3. Nena Ismirnoglou - Greece

 

4. Jamie Oliver - U.K.

 

5. Lefteris Lazaru - Greece

2. Alice Waters

 

3. Grant Achatz

I have a research paper due for class about the Brigade System, and i would like to know how Gordon Ramsay uses this system for The London West Hollywood restaurant.
 

post #42 of 65

I don't know if it's happened before but I'd say Gordon Ramsay because his attitude and personality when it comes to the kitchen and cooking is similiar to mine so I always like hearing what he says. Honestly, I like hearing from any major chefs though, it's always interesting to hear different perspectives.

"what's with boys and knives"

 

I don't know but when I was a kid I was always playing with knives and scissors (not to mention fire) and my mom would tell me "your never gonna get anywhere playing with knives, you can't get paid to do that you know"...boy did I show her.

LOL, SA!

Our nephew’s name is Nicolas, my DH calls him Nick the Knife

and for his 18th b-day (he wants to be a chef)

DH gave him this kick butt Navy Seal type of knife! 

Ya’ know the kid cuts up meats with it?!

I’d rather chat one on one (it would be lots easier for me), but my second choice would be to chat here, or read what they said later:

 

  • Lidia Bastianich
  • Julia Colin Davison
  • Ina Garten
  • Marcella Hazan
  • Graham Kerr
  • Bridget Lancaster
  • Sara Moulton
  • Jacques Pepin
  • Paul Prudhomme
  • Michelle Urvater
  • Martin Yan

 

  • Any real authentic Southern Thai cook
  • Any world class outdoor cook
post #46 of 65

YEAH!!!  Graham Kerr, Oh my GAWD! 

My Father and I watched every episode and we had all of his books

and made and ATE way more of his food then we probably should have.

Julia Colin Davison and Bridget Lancaster are both just cutie-pa-tuties!! 

YAN-CAN-COOK-SO-CAN-YOU!! 

All of the PBS 'cooking' programs are the bomb-diggity!

I love the older PBS cooking shows also, great chefs plus no commercials!

OK, here's a thought...after everyone who's posted in this thread gets their wishes fulfilled and there's no one else left, how about we get some of the famous food critics, especially the nasty ones, and find out what they whip-up in their own kitchen.smile.gif

Jacques Torres & Eric Ripert

Oh...and Ming Tsai!!!

 

Also LOVE the old (and new) PBS cooking shows~

Grew up on Julia & Graham.

I don't want to pick on the fat kid, but that is who he was.

Maybe not "fat" but huge eared.

It's unfortunate that he was picked upon as a child, but ...he was.

So he hit the weights to make up for it.

Then...  I dunno... huh huh huh lift weights

Then really bad show where he uses crap ingredients to make crap food for crap ppl.

huzzah! I got accent!

American Icon!

Head Chef!
