    Our last chat was with the very wonderful Steven Raichlen was early in the Summer and it was a great success. This Q&A forum was such a great one that it really is a tough act to follow. But, it begs the question who would the ChefTalk.com community like to chat with next? Please feel free to post your ideas on future ChefTalk guests. 

    Thanks!

    I've always had a found affection for Chef Paul Prudhomme.  Some of the early cooking shows on television featured Chef Paul, a true gem in the culinary world.

    Maybe some baking or pastry experts, like -

    Rose Levy Beranbaum

    Dorie Greenspan

    Shirley Corriher

    Johnny Iuzzini

    Eddy Van Damme

    Harold Mcgee - OK, he has already been here, but was fascinating! See if he will come back.

    Any chance of enticing a UK or European based chef into the 'Talk' section?

    If so, my list would be LONG!

    There are just too many interesting people out there (in cooking terms /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif)

    Just a couple I'm thinking of:

    - Jaques Peppin

    - Delia Smit (no-nonsense British home cook)

    - Andrea Nguyen (vietnamese cooking, I like her blog: viet world kitchen)

    and many many more

    An Indian cook, perhaps Madhur Jaffrey, Julie Sahni

    Bruce Cost for pan asian cooking

    Grace Young or Eileen Yin Fei lo for Chinese Cooking

    Mai Pham for Vietnamese

    We need another sausage guy. We had Aidells, whose next for charcuterie? That guy who co wrote with Ruhlman. Name escapes me.

    Ruhlman would be good too.

    James Villas and or Damon Lee Fowler for Southern Cooking.

    Perhaps a Lodge rep to give some cast iron tips and techniques and recipes and discussion.

    I'd like to see an Indian cook as well.  Never would have thought about cast iron cooking, but I like that idea.

    Good picks...........

    Is it ok to dream ? ............father always told me "If your going to go, go big." (but just having a guest is great period- alot to learn)

    Grant Achatz

    Hubert Keller

    Robert Irvine

    Heston Blumenthal

    and in the Pastry department, my boss always speaks of the fine desserts he used to have at club 21 in NY , so I think Kimberly Bugler would be pretty good. There are so many really, many great pastry chefs ( every pastry chef is an artist in their own right )

    Petals.

    Eric Ripart, for sure. I'd lik to see more female type chefs if possible: Ana Sortun; Michele Bernstein; Amanda Frietag---ladies of that caliper.

    I would love to see Jacques Pepin as well. Chris Cosentino would also make an interesting choice.

    The title of this thread has been mocking me for months.  In the words of Popeye, "I've had all I can stands and can't stands it no more."  WHOM.  Whom not who.  "Whom would you like to chat with."   The word order is a bit of a jumble but "you" is the subject of the sentence, and "whom" is the correct object form. 

    Dangling the "with" was bad enough.  If anyone is tempted to reply with a post which includes the phrase, "up with which I will not put," they deserve the revenge the fates hold in store.

    The heck with it.  With whom would you like to chat?  Was that so difficult?

    Finally, why Robert Irvine of all people?  Do you think he'd explain the lies?

    Your post seriously made me laugh.  Thank you...

    As I did not start the thread, I cannot explain to you the manner is which it was posted.

    As for Robert Irvine, it's for purely shallow reasons that have nothing to do with his cooking.  Hence, "bow-chicka-bow-wow".

    It's the internet...lighten up.    :)

    Does anyone know Sanjay Thumma, AKA Vah Chef?

    Indian food is so delicious, and so (ahem) foreign to me....



    His dishes are fairly accessible to the Western cook, I think.

    And he seems like a pretty likeable guy.

    So sad that I missed Aidell- I hope I have the opportunity to meet him someday.

    @ boar_de_ laze: (And whomever else may care) "Up with which I shall not put."

    LMFAO!

    Oh! Hubert Keller.  He seems so congenial and willing to share his every trick on TV.   I'd love to chat with him.

    I've had this thread topic on my mind as well as the MANY threads on knives ( what is it with boys and knives? )

    I feel that an expert in the field of knives would be fabulous

    it's been awhile since there has been a guest at Chef Talk

    wow...

    long time later, but I'd love to see some repeat performances:

    Raichlen

    Moulton

    did someone say "vah chef"? i love that guy.

    james peterson

    if you can get him, I'd love to pick Paul Prudhomme's brain

    Jacques Pepin

    I'd actually like to see two fat ladies...

    More NOLA chefs,

    Hearing from the FXcuisine guy would be a nice addition.

    If these interviews were happening, I'd be more likely to log in.

    If any interviews were happening...""
