I don't get wrapped up in the whole celebrity chef thing. Most of what comprises the schedule of the Food Network bores the heck out of me and I never watch it. Quite frankly, if I see one more competition or challenge show I'll rip the knobs off of their Viking range!
My co-workers have labeled me a "foodie"; Okay, they really call me a "food snob", but I prefer the former versus the latter. I love to cook and yes, I can be particular about my likes and dislikes - especially when it comes to "celebrity chefs".
