Thread: Favourite chefs / chefs you look up to

    Favourite chefs / chefs you look up to

    There are a number of chefs who I look up to, and in some way or another many of them have influenced how & what I cook. I'm curious to find out who some of you other guys admire.

    Well, there's a certain Mr Jones who seems to be doing wonderful things over in a place called Merimbula, or was it Zanzibar ...

    Jim the Greek. He taught me how to cook lamb, season meat, and tell people to "shove it".

    In a non-professional setting, via celebrity influence, I of course love Jamie Oliver, Adam Perry Lang, and the late Anthony Sedlak.

    Simon Hulstone.Raymond Blanc.Guy Savoy.Heston Blumenthal.Jock Zonfrillo.Christine Manfield and lots more that have provided me with inspiration but I think Alexis Soyer is the most incredible chef I have read about- the man was a genius and a bit of a nutter.

    Jaques Pepin. How could you not be inspired by his knife work? M. Pepin and Julia were pretty much all we had back in the early days of tv cooking shows. (Unless you count Graham Kerr. )

    (Was going to add Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson, but thought better of it.)
