Do you listen to what celebrity chefs say?

Do you care when Jamie tells you what or how to eat? Or buy different food after watching his programmes? Whatever impact celebrity chefs have on the way you learn and eat food I would like to know.

I am a Phd student at King's College London writing a research project on celebrity chefs and food politics. As part of this I am conducting a survey asking people aboutthe power of celebrity to influence public knowledge and behaviour.

The survey takes around 20mins to complete, it doesn't have to be completed in one go, and there are prizes to be won from Ipod touch to Amazon vouchers. If you could spare any time to fill in a survey I would really appreciate it and please feel free to pass it on to anyone you know who would be able to fill it in!

You can fin the survey here....

I have had permission from Merlin on the Editorial team to post this request. Thank you for your time. Christine.

Yeah...I believe you.....

Don't you think your research might be somewhat biased in favour of what Celebrity Chefs do/say by getting your respondants from "Celebrity Chef" forums.....The people on here (Regulars anyway) are fairly clued up when it comes to cooking....

Perhaps you'd be better standing outside your local supermarket and asking people leaving to take the survey...

I'm sure you would get a more "Balanced" view..

Not sure how/ why an Ethics Committee would approve a research tool that has an incentive and as another member has pointed out, has a "biased" sample think

Re: Do you listen to what celebrity chefs say?

It is quite common to have a prize for completing a survey, and there is some research projects that even give people a small financial reward for participating.

Having done research myself I can relate to the need to get people to respond, and I hope I get a chance to do this survey. In my case I support JO because he is such a great ambassador for the food philosophy I already have. I can't think of an instance where what he has said has changed my food choices (although I have been glad of his tips) so I can see that there would be a variety of opinions from people on this site, and many more if people post the link on fb etc. All valid!

And it is very good to see research being done on this topic! My only problem is that it is a such a (time/energy) investment to do the survey! cool
