Any of these celeb food stars that you originally disliked but now respect? any that you respected by now loathe?
one of the biggest interest shifts for me happend with Cat Cora. I never really cared for her stuff. I remember watching Iron Chef and noticing a period where the challengers rarely picked her for battle and that her record wasn't all that stellar either. I lamely figured foodnetwork was just using her to fill a gender quota. Then I noticed a pretty huge comeback and ate all my thoughts in one big regretful gulp. she's pretty awesome to me now.
