Haven't seen any US cookery personalities but as for the ones that appear on British TV.

Jamie Oliver is just an annoying wannabe Londoner who thinks he's geezer. Nigella Lawson is just a pretty bit of fluff. Gary Rhodes isn't bad but is just a little bit pretentious. Delia Smith (who really does know how to cook well) is just too middle-class, twee and respectable. Ken Hom is alright but is always dropping hints suggesting he's some sort of sex-god. Ainsley Harriot is indeed very annoying and he never seems to do any cooking. Raymond Blanc is alright though, great dishes, gets stuck into his cooking, has a real love of food and is a nice bloke too. Carluccio isn't bad either.

The 2 Fat Ladies were indeed great (particularly the one that's now dead), but the king of them all has got to be Keith Floyd. Like the 2 Fat Ladies he really enjoyed his food and drink in that earthy, unpretentious way. He enjoyed his it so much he was never sober when doing a show (and probably never sober when not doing a show). On one show he prepared a huge meat dish for an entire rugby team, when he was carrying it out and just about to put the huge platter onto the table he staggered, fell and the whole lot landed on the floor. He simply scooped the whole lot back off the floor onto the serving tray and served it up. Keith Floyd came across as someone who just couldn't give a shit about anything except food and drink.

I wish I could do that with the FNG's at work.

Cooking shows/personalities I love:

Season by Season (Michael Chiarello)
The Italian Kitchen (Ruth and Rose, not on anymore)
Jamie Oliver (I know this one is controversial)
Jacques Torres
Lidia's Italian American Kitchen
Jacques Pépin (and Claudine)
Gary Rhodes
The Two Fat Ladies
any show with Julia Child, the dowager empress of French cuisine!

(OK, I watch Martha Stewart too. She has some great recipes. I fast-forward past all the stupid stuff, which is sometimes the whole show!)

Cooking shows/personalities that I detest:
Emeril (any of his shows)
Ainsley Harriott (he is so annoying)

I know my VCR is set for Saturday night's battle. I'll, more than likely, be bending an elbow at some watering hole in the 'hood. As Mooch and I tend to do on a Saturday. I'll review the goods later.

Iron Chef ROCKS! I thought I was the only one who watched it. Good one Crosby-San! I hear Emmy is a great chef as well.

rah. i didn't want to be the first to say it, seeing as i've done plenty of anti-emeril ranting here before.

you know what his show needs to make it watchable? a MUTE option. 1.) turn off the gd catch phrases 2.) on live show turn off the gd audience! wtf is up with woopin it up over throwing fucking garlic in a pan?

in any case...

Morimoto uber alles!

I watch a lot of cooking shows, but Emeril just pisses me off. That show is totally useless. It's a cooking show for people who don't cook.

Nothing to do with Moonman, just my anti-Emeril rant.

"What is this moonman you speak of,, hmmnnn?"

Oh, that's just Absinthe talk. It's off topic, ignore it.
