    My vote is for Todd English. He is gorgeous - owns several restaurants including the swank Olives - and I hear he has a new line of cookware coming out on HSN so if you don't know what I'm talking about you'll figure it out when you see him on TV! I'm buying it - in part because I really need new cookware, but also cause I really need a man like Todd cooking in my kitchen!
    Would anyone else vote for Todd?

    LOL at chrose!!! The Swedish Chef is one of my all time favorites!!

    Only in our superficial, hook-on-good-looks society would this ever come up. Who cares how they look! All I care about is, can they cook? Julia, Alice Waters, Paul Prudhomme, Patrick O-Connell, Jeff Smith, Mark Miller. These guys are nothing to look at, but they sure can cook. As for Todd English, he's a pretty **** good cook and I'd respect him even if he was a hunchbacked, one-eyed dwarf with acne problems, liver spots and mange.

    :look: I never said she wasn't attractive. Just that she can't cook, which we agree on.

    BTW, she's getting divorced, Mark. Now's your chance!!! :roll:

    I think Tony and Ming are hot guys. And they know food and can cook. ;)

    markv needs no embellishment. maybe whipped cream and a cherry.
    this time of year, i begin to realize i am probably living a bit too far from town.

    MarkV -- I am hurt. I'll try to get a picture of me on Kuan's new site so you can see what a real hot cook looks like ;-)

    When it comes down to it, I still have to say that Mario Batali does it for me. Don't know what it is, but he's got it -- and if I didn't have my wonderful husband at my side, and he didn't have a wife and two kids, I would be after that (wow, that just sounded like a guy! :crazy: )

    Do you mean that he enjoys kissing small hills, or everyone in Butte, Montana?:confused: If it's that latter then he must be an awfully friendly fellow:smiles:

    I don't know what her name is, just caught her show on pbs this morning. Scanda cooks of something. But she has my vote for the most attractive.
