Just throwing this out there. Want people's opinions about the chefs we all watch.
I'll give my answer and reason to these questions and feel free to give yours. I'll start by saying, I have unfortunately not eaten at any of these chefs restaurants. Remember Food Network only!
Best chef - I know this won't be popular, but Bobby Flay
Most overrated chef - Emeril. His recipes are weak, and his act is very dull now.
Most charismatic - Robert Irvine (yes even more than Rachel Ray)
Best show - Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. I love this show. Hard to choose though.
Worst show - Simply Deliciosa. Not very informative and silly concept
Chef you'd most like to eat with - Guy Fieri. Just seems like a lovable guy.
Chef you'd most like to drink with - Anthony Bourdain.
Chef you'd most like to learn from - Tyler Florence. He seems to be patient and polished.
If you've been, best restaurant of a chef from Food Network - haven't : (
If you haven't, restaurant you most want to eat at - Mesa Grill
What type of show is missing from the Food Network - A show dedicated to ethnic cuisines, like Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Ethiopian, Moroccan. More than just Cook's Tour. I'd love a show dedicated to teaching Americans how to cook these wonderful dishes.
