I do sometimes watch the come dine with me, i have also caught a couple of programmes with jamie oliver on his 30 minute cooking, they seem to be pretty good, i do like to watch things like this as it can give me some ideas on what i can cook, what goes well together, and possibly different ways to cooking things. I find them really useful, and if the food turns out better then i reall am happy. There are many great chefs that are on the television at the moment, and to be honest, yes i do prefer to watch the female chefs. It isn't just there cooking that i admire, lol.

i have seen the jamies meals in 30 minutes and its good. its amazing what you can make in 30 minutes when you put you mind to it and i would love to try it sometime. i would love to make a rissoto and i was shocked he made one in 30 minutes. i like both the male and female chefs.

It is amazing what you can make in 30 minutes. It just goes to show how simple things can be. I guess seeing it happen shows that it is possible. Im sure that if you have everything available then you can accomplish so much in 30 minutes. I think there are so many quality chefs out there, it is great to see the different ways they cook and the different types of food that they cook.

I love to watch the food network quite a bit. I love how Bobby Flay cooks but I haven't been successful in recreating his recipes. But I do make my own recipes I just don't know how well they hold up against the iron chef.

Bobby Flay is a really cool chef, he is on many tv shows on the food network, like Iron Chef America, he is one of the iron chefs there, also Throwdown with Bobby Flay where he challenges people with their own recipes and see if he can make their recipes better then they can, and Grill it where he shows us how to make food on the grill. Also I like to watch Ace of Cakes its also a show on the food network that follows a bunch of bakers and how they make these awesome cakes, I recommend you watch this show it is also really funny and entertaining, I especially like Geoff and Duff. Hope this answer is not too long, and that it actually answered your question. :)
