      The quotes around “star chef” makes me think it’s not a true chef. Kinda like a reality star who thinks/claims to be a chef. Don’t watch reality tv so no clue, but that’s what it looks like.

      • drusilla

        Yeah, exactly… if you’ve watched more than 10 minutes of 30 Minute Meals, you know RR can’t cook her way out of a paper bag.

        Every time she makes toast on that show, she’s gotta hide the burnt side with an artfully arranged piece of bacon/sausage/melted cheese.

  • come on!!! this normal human behavior

    who wants to do in his free time what he does for a living??

    i support her/him whever she/he is

  • JR

    “star chef” Star as in macy’s logo? Martha?

    • G. Willacres

      Please Martha has been stealing other peoples mojo since the beginning. it’s no secret! I’m sure she does this all the time……….

      then again maybe it is but I don’t think she’s considered a “star chef”

    • MizFabulous

      She was my first thought as well.

  • daria

    NYC “housewife” Bethenny Frankel

  • Jen

    I guess Billy Joel’s ex wife, whatshername.

  • Jen

    Someone associated with Top Chef? Only because they use the “Glad Family” of products on the show: “I’m so *Glad* You Like My Fake Cooking” ?

  • GuyIncognito

    Padma Lakshmi has cookbooks though I’m not sure she’s technically a chef

  • RocketQueen

    I’m on the Gwyneth Paltrow train.

  • LemonDrop

    that hair reminds me of ina garten

    • stinkweed

      Ina Garten started and ran one of the most successful catering/specialty food stores ever. She’s wildly famous for her dinner parties and has been for years. Definitely not her.

  • stinkweed

    That chick with the stupid “semi-homemade” show. She is so not a chef. Her food SUX.

    • Ripley

      So true!!! Her show is horrible.

    • Megley

      Sandra Lee. Her show AND her recipes s*!

    • drusilla

      Haha, but is it really a blind when she admits to it? What, so instead of adding a dash of cream to the pre-made curry, she serves it as is and pretends she’s added something to it?

      Besides, you’d think they’d make reference to her total, unabashed drunkyness… haha, I love Sandra Lee but she’s a total twit.

    • lagne

      Heck yes. I don’t begrudge her success, but I can’t STAND her show.

  • Leonie

    Padma Lakshmi

  • definitely

    Even if the BI is not referring to this person, I know for a fact that Barefoot Contessa lady does this. My former roomate’s brother was an editor at Gourmet Magazine and was repeatedly hired by her to cater “her own” dinner parties.

    • stinkweed

      Did he also run her catering company and store?

      I have a hard time believing a celebrity chef would be stupid enough to hire a cooking magazine editor to cater her parties.

      • definitely

        Like I said, I’m not sure if this is the story the BI is referring to. But I spoke with the guy myself and he would have no reason to lie to me about something like that. He never looked for any glory in it, he thought it was always funny that she would pass it off as her cooking.

        Maybe she just really liked his food.

  • Ahorsenamedbill

    I’m definately with Definitely
    In my area people do refer to her as a star (and refer to her as the original star chef)

    • RocketQueen

      Hilarious that you went out of your way to spell “definitely” wrong after “Definitely” showed you how it’s done.

    • MizFabulous

      Correct me if I’m wrong, but I do believe that Miz Julia Child was the original star chef.

  • Patrizio

    The thing I like about Sandra Lee is that she does comes up with killer cocktails on that show, plus some of the recipes are not that bad. I’d be more inclined to think of one of the bigger, busier cooks who don’t have the time -Rachel Ray jumps out, but do have the ego-

  • Thandie

    Bethenny Frankel, from Real Housewives NY.

    • Kt

      Totally TOTALLY Bethany. Last season she made spaghetti carbonara on camera and put cream in it (although I suppose I could be the one who is wrong, but I’ve certainly never seen a traditional carbonara with cream)?

      • Thandie

        They actually put cream at some of the more expensive restaurants in North Italy; it comes more smooth and you don’t sense the eggs as much. Though Bethenny’s food supposed to be all about healthy, no? Cream isn’t exactly that.
        She came first to mind reading this BI.

    • KT

      I am hungry for spaghetti now – thanks Thandie!

  • fair is fair

    Joanne Weir. Fact.

  • MAC

    NOT Sandra Lee – I was in the kitchen when she personally made spaghetti & meatballs (from scratch) for 15 and she asked me to add spices to the ground beef! I offered to stir the sauce and she said, “I’ve got it covered!”

    • stinkweed

      Not for nothing, but spaghetti and meatballs is not exactly dinner party gourmet. My 11 year old could make spaghetti and meatballs from scratch for 15 (and stir it herself).

  • skaneta

    I should know this but damn I’m stumped. Sounds like RR with the chef in quotes anyway.
    Could be Martha. She’s a crook.
    Could be Sandra, she only makes good drinks.
    Could be Giada, she’s been around a lot lately although has a degree in cheffery.

    Rachael Ray or Padma Lakshmi
