To be a celebrity chef , the last thing you have to be is a chef and the last thing you have to know is how to cook. Bobby Flay admits this in his interviews. It is scripted ,produced and directed by others. The food is preped by stylist and technicians. Food networks main thing now is selling kitchenware and magazines, and franchising its name and logo. Ms. Johnson is a pro at that and I must give her credit. As far as shows I like diners and dives because it shows me ethnic cuisine throughout the US As far as Guy as host ? or chef as we said in Brooklyn Forgetaboutit. It could be hosted by Alex Trebek
Who probably has a better appreciation of good food.
Certainly he wouldn't be mocking the folks who make the show possible, the way Fieri does. And he most assuredly wouldn't be doing things like dripping an overstuffed sandwich all over the prep stations.
