New chefs vs Old chefs

Frustrates me that the new young, hip, trendy, tv chefs have replaced GREAT shows and AMAZING CHEFS like cooking with Jaques Pepin, New Scandinavian cooking with Andreas Viestad, Ciao Italia with Mary Ann Esposito, Lidia Bastianich, Rick Bayless, Ming Tsai, crazy Martin Yan, Tommy Tang, hell I'll even include Joanne Weir and Rick Browne etc.. All these AMAZING CHEFS that cooked and would give you the history on the food they were cooking, they added so much cultural richness through the history of their ingredients and traditions. So much history in one dish and they made sure you knew it as well. AMAZING talent that has unfortunately now been replaced by a bunch of trendy, hip, amateurs like Fabio, Ludo Lefebvre, the Voltaggios even though they're hot, all the other "known" chefs. where's the culture and history in your food? there's none. the only story to their food is trend... must be more trendy and innovative. PLEASE!! SIT DOWN AND LET THE REAL CHEFS SHOW YOU HOW IT'S DONE!!
Old Chefs win in my opinion.. HANDS DOWN!! LOL
