    Flay holds the Food Network record for most shows, clocking in with well over 60 different shows over the years. Imagine 60 shows!

    Meh...Flay is a hack. If he accompanies one more dish with mango ****ing salsa, I'm gonna throw my TV through the wall.

    I love Bobby Flay and Giada, but Elton Brown, well he's Elton Brown.
    And if I see one more Iron Chef sweat in his food, uggg
    Actually, he's Alton Brown, and of all the hosts, he's by far my favorite. From the Monty Python references to the fact that he did the animated skit where he fought Sterling Archer, his taste in comedy is very similar to my own. Sure, the show is campy, but the science behind food is fascinating.

    Still remember his guesting on Mythbusters to help them cook a thanksgiving dinner off the heat from inside the engine compartment of the car they drove.
    "Like the wind crying endlessly through the universe, Time carries away the names and the deeds of conquerors and commoners alike. And all that we are, all that remains, is in the memories of those who cared we came this way for a brief moment." Harlan Ellison

    Now Rachael Ray's pushing her cat food... Her cooking isn't fit for human consumption let alone a cat's...

    A neighbor bought a bag and her cats didn't like it and she gave the rest of it to me... Both of my cats tried to bury it...and they refused to go anywhere near that bowl...even after I threw it out and replaced it with their favorite dry food)...until I washed out the dry cat food bowl... If that isn't a snub hall of fame moment...I don't know what is...

    I love Alton Brown. You can learn more about cooking and food in one episode of Good Eats than you can in Flay's and Ray's entire combined oeuvre.

    There are some chefs that started out as sort of a lightweight and wind up two Twinkies shy of a metric ton after ten years...

    Emeril comes to mind here...
