    i love samin nostrat. i made her conveyor belt chicken last night actually, recommended by a GR member. it's one of those amazing recipes where you can't believe that something so easy to make can be so damn delicious.

    what's wrong with the list:

    sara moulton is not on the list

    what's right with the list:

    tyler florence and bitter's honey bunny sandra lee are not on the list.

    God, I forgot all about Sara Moulton! She was sort of..."normal" back when I remember watching her show (in other words, I don't remember her being overly zany like a lot of other food peeps), but she made some good, straightforward fare.

    I like Padma's dress. I think that would be a nice summer dress.

    I never got around to seeing Samin Nosrat's show but always wanted to...

    Yeah it’s a pretty boring list. At least 10 of them are famous and good businesspeople but I question their actual talent but then the list is about “players”, not best chef or most knowledgeable.
    Also I’m sorry but as much as I love Jose Andres for his philanthropy, there’s a reason he built his empire in DC and not New York or California. When it comes to DC restaurants, overpriced and overrated is the norm and I’ve pretty much been to all his restaurants here and it goes from “very good but not special” to “barely passable food served in a very trendy decor”.

    then he sounds like a good fit for LA. i was really surprised by the difference between SF and LA foodwise. expensive in LA means average as far as food quality. and except for a few restaurants, expensive here means great.

    Really? it’s true that food in the Bay Area tends to be amazing, I think besides New York it’s where I’ve had the best food in the US. But LA wasn’t far behind, although keep in mind I was only there once for about 4 days. Maybe I got lucky but I had some pretty great food. It’s also true I had a lot of Japanese and Asian and mexican food which seems to be LA’s strength.
    José Andrés is fine for the most part (his Peruvian-Asian fusion place is pretty terrible though) but way too expensive for what it is and also I’m just never surprised at his restaurants, which is why I think he’s a good fit for DC because people here only like new stuff when it’s not too crazy, years old and has already been tested somewhere else.

    LA is good for mexican and korean. but most of the other food i had there was pretty mediocre. maybe we didn't luck out with the japanese places we went to but most were just average. and yeah, we are spoiled in SF. NY is pretty amazing as well. but i've been able to go to cities all over the country and find something that was pretty good. overall, that was not true for me in LA.
