You say you want to be a chef?
There is always the quiet chatter of the TV in the background while my DH and I work in our office. It usually is some stock channel or news but occasionally, he'll have on the Food Network. You see, I'm not the chef in the family. The DH comes from a long line of NY chefs and our daughter (nodtomod vintage) is a trained Paris Cordon Bleu chef so I don't need to enter the kitchen much. I'm more the baker of the family and with the good food they produce, who needs a rich dessert? I posed the question to the two of them who was their favorite chef on the Food Network and the banter that flew was quite interesting. They had other favorites but the key was that the chef had to have a show on the Food Network. It went from "I wouldn't mind being this one because they get to travel" to "That one's cute!". "Ahem!!! Guys, I was talking about who do you like as far as how they cook?!?!" Their top choice was Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa for her simplistic good meals that anyone can make. Ok foodies, who's your favorite?
