You got that right Rod, he is superb!
 
Anyone remember Biker Billy who did a show out of Hell's Kitchen I think it was? He was a big heavy biker, and his name is Billy Hufnagle, and he always cooked with hot peppers- loved them! I have a cookbook from him and is full of tons of good recipe's, easy to make, and quite spicy.

A year late, but...

Jeff Smith, the Frugal Gourmet.
Justin Wilson.
Two different Yans (Yan Can Cook).
Grahm Kerr, the original Galloping Gourmet.
Rick Baylis, "Cooking Mexican."

This was on PBS Saturday mornings, back before the Food Network.  You can still find some of it on YouTube.

Of the new crop, the early Emeril, Rachel and Bobby Flay (Before they were "STARS".)  Mario Batali.  Alton Brown is my go-to when I'm looking for something, 'cause he explains why.

Giada is food porn.  Search her on YouTube, and food isn't the focus!

lol - funny you should mention that. this is way off topic, BUT.....
 
a great many years ago, back in the early 90s, when i was still attending college as a non-trad student (i.e, 20-something-year-old guy with a wife and kids), one of the lit professors was getting rid of a bunch of stuff in his office. included was a pretty-good-sized box of old playboys. i'm talking old, back to 67-72 or so ~ it seemed a shame to toss out that much hsitory, so i grabbed them and brought them home.
 
i gotta admit, for that time period, the articles actually WERE more interesting ~ and so were the full-page ads for ford mustangs, AMC pacers, bourbon, vodka etc ~kinda like everyone who read or advertised there was that "most interesting man in the world" guy from the dos equis commercials ~ lol

No need to apologize.  It's just sometimes I lose track of what she's cooking!
