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.
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
Yeah, ordering in is fine…just don’t try to pass it off like you made it yourself.
“star chef” Star as in macy’s logo? Martha?
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”
She was my first thought as well.
NYC “housewife” Bethenny Frankel
Third. Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think there are many people out there that call themselves “celebrity chefs.”
I guess Billy Joel’s ex wife, whatshername.
or Seinfeld’s wife, whatshername
like his guess
i was thinking Paltrow but she is not a “chef”
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” ?
Padma Lakshmi has cookbooks though I’m not sure she’s technically a chef
I’m on the Gwyneth Paltrow train.
that hair reminds me of ina garten
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.
no i know, i dont think its her anyway, just the goofy hair reminded me of her
in light of “definitely”‘s comment lol i retract my retraction and continue to go with my original guess
That chick with the stupid “semi-homemade” show. She is so not a chef. Her food SUX.
So true!!! Her show is horrible.
Sandra Lee. Her show AND her recipes s*!
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.
Heck yes. I don’t begrudge her success, but I can’t STAND her show.
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.
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.
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.
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)
Hilarious that you went out of your way to spell “definitely” wrong after “Definitely” showed you how it’s done.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I do believe that Miz Julia Child was the original star chef.
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-
Bethenny Frankel, from Real Housewives NY.
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)?
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.
I am hungry for spaghetti now – thanks Thandie!
Joanne Weir. Fact.
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!”
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).
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.
