on the dc pbs station "create" (affiliated with WETA? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Create_(... ) i saw this program this morning, with andré soltner (of "lutece" http://gothamist.com/2004/02/11/au_re... ). he talked about his philosophy as a chef -- a craftsman, and not an "artist" -- because you have to have discipline to do the same thing perfectly (or very well) EVERY day.
i believe there's a different chef every show. i didn't get to see the entire half-hour, but from what i did see, i would recommend the show. it is an interview format, but there is also a demo portion. soltner made the "perfect" french omelette, which he said was the dish that he used to "test" a job applicant for his kitchen. http://www.chefsstory.com/
the listing on the chefsstory.com website doesn't seem comprehensive at all. check your local listings.
