    I thought this would be kind of a fun thing to do.
    Which celebrity chef do you think you are most like--the one who is closest to your cooking style and philosophy?

    I would be Andreas Viestad. Like him, I'm a writer and home cook, and I agree with his statement, "I'm not a chef. I cook because I'm hungry."

    So who are you?

    Geeee Choccie, this is difficult! We don't see all your American TV chefs here, and who knows, one I've never seen might cook "my way"!! icon_lol.gif

    Apart from the money, the fact that he's male and rather loud, I think I cook along the lines of Jamie Oliver -- NOT as grand, NOT as clever, but I also tend to take available, seasonal stuff, and do dishes as fast as I can!! icon_wink.gif icon_lol.gif

    I like his practicality, although sometimes he irritates me -- no doubt the way I probably annoy my husband by complaining nightly that I don't feel like cooking dinner! icon_eek.gif

    I think your recipes are written more clearly, though! (A "glug" of olive oil? icon_lol.gif )

    I'm a bit of an old fashioned cook and love winter and long slow cooking recipes, curries, soups and such and love the old favourites, sometimes with a twist and I really relate to Margaret Fulton (considered the great grandmother of Australian cooking [could also be her Scots background icon_biggrin.gif ] and would be one of Australias first celebrity cooks), she is well into here 80's and is still putting out cookbooks though some of the recipes are more updated and with modern twists but most are within easy reach of the everyday cook.

    Here is a bit of blurb on a site about here

    "Margaret Fulton is one of Australia’s leading and best-loved cookery experts. The matriarch of Australian cooking, she has been credited with changing the way Australians eat. Her original The Margaret Fulton Cookbook, first published in 1968 (with a Revised Edition released in April 2010), sold over 1.5 million copies and taught generations of Australian families how to cook and entertain. Margaret has been nominated by the National Trust as an Australian Living National Treasure and, in 2009, she was named by a Sydney Morning Herald panel as one of the 25 Australians who has most changed the nation."

    Her 1968 cookbook was one of the first cookbooks I ever bought (I was 11 years old and it was a lot of pocket money) and my DD gave me the revised edition in 2010 for Christmas. I also had the pleasure of seeing her cook in our high school when she was doing a promotion for the WA Lamb board - that was in 1970.

    Pat, we even know Margaret Fulton here in South Afica. I don't have any of her recipe books, as she was probably ahead of my time, but I DO remember her name!! icon_biggrin.gif

    Our own "Margaret Fulton" was a woman who called herself, from the start, "Mrs. S J de Villiers". She wrote a cookbook detailing all kind of cooking, baking, preserving, you-name-it -- very South African -- and at the start no-one would publish it.

    So, she and her husband self-published it. It was only in Afrikaans to start with: "Kook en Geniet". The book was later translated as "Cook and Enjoy it".

    The book was a hit. Years later a publishing company took it over. That book is now in possibly its 20th printing (updated, updated all the time) and is still the Bible for all cooks, especially young cooks!

    Aren't women wonderful?? icon_biggrin.gif

    I really don't know which chef I am like now. I use to be a Paula Deen, people even say I talk like her. LOL, I know I have a Southern accent, but don't believe it is that Southern.

    Right now I am probably more like one that cooks with a lot of hot peppers and with mostly fresh foods. Although I am not a big fan of Rachel Ray I know I like 30 minutes meal or even less. Being I cook, most of the time, for one, I am not sure there is one that I cook like. I have cooked for the folks that work at our local Mexican restaurant a couple of times in the last 6 weeks. Last week I fed everyone that works on a Friday night and that is all of them. I am also cooking for the guys that are doing my new remodel project on my house, every day.

    But I also really like emeril and bobby flay.

    so i guess those are my 3 favorites, hands down.

    I love these answers!

    My son was really interested in cooking and cooking shows when he was younger. Now that he's almost grown and is actually capable of making a meal, he doesn't want to bother. icon_mad.gif

    I forgot -- there is a chef/cook/writer/TV food personality I simply adore. It's Rick Stein, who did those lazy trips on houseboats through France, down to the Med.

    Gee, I love his calm, unflappable way of talking, explaining, cooking.

    I am not a cook like him (I should be so lucky!!) but I wish I had his serene, restful personality!! None of that exaggerrated, over-the-top "performing" and shouting so beloved by many TV cooks!

    And I love the way he loves all things fish and seafood, because I do too! I willingly watch repeats of his programs, while letting loose curses at other repeats. icon_eek.gif icon_lol.gif

    Like you Zurie I love seafood and Rick Stein is fantastic watch and he is very imformative and you can tell he is genuinely passionate about seafood and substainability and using common species and doing so beautifully and he laments that they are so often passed over for much more expensive species.

    Rachael Ray for me. She inspired me to want to become a chef.

    I think I am a Vulcan mind-meld between Alton Brown and Marcus Samuelsson. I love to geek out over the hows and whys of cooking and baking. I suppose I am something of a zany egghead that way. I must admit, however, that I do have a goodly number of uni-taskers in my kitchen, despite my best efforts to the contrary! Two of my fave types of cooking are Scandinavian and African, including Ethiopean. I am not as experimental and innovative as Marcus, but then he has a lot more experience and expertise than I do.
