Celebrity chefs want to improve their cooking skills in 2011 like many microwave home cooking gurus out there.

In the January 2011 issue of Oprah’s magazine, “O,” several well-known cooks share what they’d like to accomplish. Raising their own chickens for more humane eggs, cooking more vegetarian meals, composting and cooking with quinoa are just a few goals of well-known foodies.

Mario Batali Will Cook More Vegetarian Meals:
“This year we want to master more vegetarian dishes, like simple bruschetta, that are fun to cook as a team.”

Martha Rose Shulman Will Replace White Rice With Quinoa:
“Quinoa is one healthy grain, full of both fiber and protein. I plan on using it in place of white rice in salads, soups, and stir-fries, like my quinoa salad with snap peas, tofu, and ginger vinaigrette.”

Alton Brown Will Know Where His Eggs Came From:
“This year I’m going to raise chickens. I really like eggs, and I don’t want to have to worry about the chicken’s welfare, or what’s in the egg.”

Alice Waters Will Compost:
“I’m putting a pretty compost bucket on my counter so I remember to use it all the time. I compost vegetables and fruit and put it right in my garden. But compost can also be given to a farmer at the market, and some cities even have programs to collect it.”

    Alton Brown is slowly redeeming himself (for his comments about the first vegetarian Iron Chef competition of course) 🙂
