    Angry Al Brown - legendry cook - I don't think so!

    You will have seen the New World ad where they say "Al Brown, legendary cook." Lengendary? I don't think so. He's that legendary that I had never heard of him until they began playing that ad. So it does not seem that he's all that legendary. Besides, you have to have been doing what you do for some time and be VERY successful before you become a legend.

    So I wonder how many others are the same as me and have never heard of him until now? Surely I can't be the only one.

    Sorry that you have been in the wilderness for sometime Roscoe. Al Brown is very well known. Had an extremely popular Wellington restaurant and then moved to Auckland where he is also highly thought of!

    Al Brown is a well known chef and TV celeb with his cooking shows/appearances/book publications. He has products in the supermarkets too.

    He is into his hunting/fishing and wild life cooking.

    But then I am not into cooking, I am into eating and I'm lucky to have a great cook in SWMBO so I have no interest in watching TV cooking shows, I don't do the shopping so I don't go to supermarkets and I don't do hunting and fishing.

    But what do you have to do to become legendary? I think you need to be as well known as The Beatles, Elvis Presley or the Queen - they are legendary - but only known in NZ and known to people who enjoy cooking and cooking shows? No. I don't think that's legendary.

    Well I recognise his pic (had a look) but he's not on my I know of him list especially.
