My addiction is serious. If there is food being cooked on TV, chances are I’m watching it. If there’s a “Gleek” equivalent for Food TV, I’m it. I’m also addicted to Twitter. Mostly I tweet about sports, because I cannot fathom watching sports on tape delay (the Olympics were torture!) however my second reason for Twitter is to follow every celebrity chef I can find.
Currently, I follow:
Alton Brown – Hilarious, especially for his analog tweets (via Post-it)
Amanda Freitag – have actually gotten replies which caused me to “squee!” like a fangirl
Aaron Sanchez – huge sports fan, just another reason to love him
Jamie Oliver – VERY informative, especially about Food Revolution items.
Alex Guarnaschelli – wonderful Tweeter, down to earth, interesting, SMART. Carries on Twitter convos with Alton Brown and Amanda Freitag
Giada De Laurentiis – gorgeous and prolific
Justin Warner – latest winner of “Food Network Star” SMART and quirky like mentor Alton Brown
Michael Symon – Opinionated, passionate, fabulous
Rachael Ray – Needs to tweet more
Ree Drummond – Just like her blog in 140 characters or less
Debi Mazar – HILARIOUS!
Gabriele Corcos – Ditto
Aarti Sequeira – Love her. Down to earth, happy, always makes me smile. Follows a lot of gluten-free folks (YAY!)
Robert Irvine – Incredibly prolific and unafraid to show his brave heart. He loves his job and his new bride.
Martha Stewart – DO NOT JUDGE ME!!
If there’s a meeting of the “Addicted to Celebrity Chefs Support Group,” someone please send me the details.
And don’t EVER ask me about my Twitter list of hockey players. It isn’t pretty.
