    I like her, too. She is so down to earth! Actually, I was asking about the girl, Arti, the one another forum host, Zurie was talking about. She couldn't remember her surname. icon_smile.gif

    Here in Australia we don't have too many female chefs who have their own shows - Julie Goodwin (Winner of Australian Master Chef) had a one which ran for about 12 weeks and was mainly about homely simple recipes which was good and Justine Schofield (a finalist in Australian Master Chef) had one called Everyday Gourmet which was very good. Kylie Kwong has appeared on a number of other shows and has excellent presentation and she did do a series on SBS where she went to China to trace her heritage (she is Australian born of Chinese parents but does not speak the language). There are a number of female chefs who appear on Ready Steady Cook who are either head chef or chef/owner of restaurants that are also very good. Of the ones mentioned so far I am not familiar with so cannot comment. The two main shows that are chef driven here are by males - Huey's Kitchten (Iian Hewitson) and Alive and Cooking (James Reeson). This is all on free TV though there are some on pay TV/cable on the lifestyle channels but as we don't subscribe I can't help out there.

    Nobody has caught my interest and enthusiasm since the Two Fat Ladies. I'd like to see a real chef who excells in Indian, Ethiopian or Scandinavian cuisine.

    We don't have a lot of TV cooks on Sputh African TV either. Most of our shows are from the UK, and we do get the US Food Channel.

    However, there are quite a lot of "inserts" about food and cooking in our locally produced magazine programmes.

    Most are NOT very good, and me, horrible old witch that I am, sit there and criticise their efforts at BBQ or cooking loudly!!

    However, I do like an attractive girl called Justine Drake (she's also editor of an in-house cookery mag) and there are two Cape Malay (older) ladies who sometimes appear, have had cookbooks out, and are always a pleasure to watch.

    Ina is my favorite. She cooks the way I cook and her recipes are spot on. I've been following her long before Food Network. My hubby is from the East coast, she's been a hit there for a long time. Paula Deen is good too, she makes a lot of the recipes I learned with my grandma and I love that. SHe's also very fun to watch.

    I know! Ina is great. Paula Deen is a riot, and most of her recipes do turn out, which is more than I can say for Martha Stewart! Cooks Illustrated tested her recipes and found that most were not doable as written! I'm sure she doesn't make up the recipe as she has loads of staff,but....

    peachez - she looks like a very interesting person from the quick look that I had, would you like her added to the list of Index of Celebrity Chefs and Famous Cooks - I could also add the link you have given for her?

    I don't remember her last name but she hosts "Arti's Party" on food
    network. Not one of my favorites though.

    Confession: I don't like Paula Deen, basically her TV presence! Too screechy, too loud, too blonde!

    I can't stand Paula Deen either. I don't like her pound of butter and bacon in everything and her y'all's.
    Giada and Ina are my favorites, Melissa D'Arabian is growing on me, too, she makes some really good food.

    My favourite at the moment here in Australia is Justine Schofield (she was a finalist in the 3rd series of Australian Masterchef) and her show is everyday gourmet.

    I really like the personality of Lynn Crawford, watching her on pitching in was a blast. I also think Cat Cora assumes a nice presence too.
