    Not sure if this is the right place for this (but I feel sure a Mod will move it, if it isnt)

    Been watching all these cooks/chefs on TV on their shows

    It does seem to me, they all use something that not many people would have in their fridge/freezer, usually some obscure ingredient you have to trawl the super markets for

    Okay thei food looks very nice and appealing, but why cant they do regular food for ordinary people using ordinary food, things people would have in the fridge

    I now have half packets of stuff, left over from making their dishes, If I want to use them up, its back to the supermarket, just cant use the whole packet for some of the reciepes and there isnt anything else to use them on or with

    Anyone else find this ???

    We do actually have a forum for Celebrity Chefs where I think you might find a lot of people interested in this. I do agree with you - I am not averse to trying new ingredients, and because I live in an area with a decent number of large ethnic markets, I can often find them at a decent price. But I've often decided not to make something because the ingredient seemed to be too expensive or I could not find another use for it. Even now, I have a bottle of orgeat syrup which I used to make a yummy marmalade, but the only other uses for it are in Mai-Tais and some other cocktail - I don't really make those, prefer my liquor less complicated!

    the forum is at http://www.food.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=70

    I tried the link, it never worked

    I looked everywhere for Porcini mushrooms, found them, but only in a large bag, I only used half, the rest I put in the cupboard, dunno how long they will last,probably end up in a omlette at the weekend

    (I have to sit through another show on Friday, the wife loves them, all very nice, we try the reciepe, then proply forget it and go back to 'regular' food, nice for a change though)

    Take a look at www.supercook.com for your various bits of ingredients, Derrick. Most of the time, it leads right back here to food.com.

    This is the correct link for the celebrity chefs forum: http://www.food.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=70

    Just saw this thread and 1 thing came to mind about the ingredients used by most of the TV chefs. Most of their shows are shot in New York City, where you can find almost anything you would ever want within a few blocks, right above a great market. Another thing is that most of the TV chefs have access to the Food Network kitchen, which is stocked by professional shoppers. The Food Network even has a full time employee just to research recipes and ingredients. I think that almost anyone could cook there because they can use as much or as little of any ingredient as they want. I watched an episode of The Worst Cooks in America the other day and almost had a heart attack when 1 lady took saffron and used it as a garnish.
