Sunday Food Thread Goes TV

This week the food thread asks the question, Who’s your favorite celebrity chef?

is there one you love to watch but wouldn’t ever cook any of their recipes, one who you trust no matter what?

Who can you not stand one iota and have to turn the channel, who do you love to hate?

Bring it on, anecdotes are definitely appreciated. Tell us about any successful recipes from famous chefs you’ve tried, unmitigated disasters too.
