Any time Food Network is discussed in this section, people complain that there aren't any good cooking shows on that channel (or any other). Some talk as though they haven't seen a good show since they were cooking novices sitting at the feet of St Julia or pretending to be Mario's sidekick as he toured Italy.
So who would be your ideal instructor, and why? What recipes or techniques would you like to see featured on such a show? How about the format - studio, no audience, small audience, on-site? Home kitchen or restaurant? Straight forward instruction, or enlivened with Good Eats style props and story lines?
You get bonus points for suggesting someone who isn't already too busy managing a mini-chain of restaurants and charities.
