(Q) Do you think that chefs on television sometimes overdo the ingredients that they put in their dishes ? It seems to me that they inundate the food with added ingredients. And in so doing lose the real flavor of the original dish.

A good chef uses herbs and spices to enhance the entree' and generally speaking, they know what works well together. At times, however, it can be a bit overdone....true.

well, I'm always one to add things to a dish, but the ones on tv are always adding things I've never even heard of....which kinda pisses me off. ;-)

My dad was a chef. I think as long as the dish tastes fantastic, then you need the ingredients.

I am a "purist", but must say that seasonings can make the flavor of some foods. Ginger is correct. Just try chicken dishes with overdone rosemary, and it will taste like medicine!

Some probably do, though I don't recall Jeff Smith, Julia Child, or Clariaa and Jennifer on Two Fat Ladies OD'ing dishes.
Emeril Lagasse, some times seems to, though it has been a while since I've watched him.

Yes. Not just spices but things like artichokes and mushrooms and cheese--too overpowering.
