I don’t watch many cooking shows, but sometimes I have to make an exception because there are some top celebrity chefs that I just love. With all of the TV I watch, it may be surprising that I don’t watch a lot of cooking shows, but there are some that I can’t help getting addicted to. It may not be the shows themselves that I’m addicted too, but the chefs themselves. Here are some of my top celebrity chefs!
1 Gordon Ramsay
I don’t know what it is about British chefs, but I love them! As a self-proclaimed anglophile I can’t help but list a few here. Chef Ramsay is definitely my favorite of the top celebrity chefs! Some people might find him too mean, but I think it’s so entertaining. Watching all of the different shows he has is so much fun. Ramsay is the toughest chef on my list, but he’s also one of the most helpful. Out of all of his shows my favorite is "Kitchen Nightmares"; who doesn’t like make-over shows?!
2 Jamie Oliver
Jamie Oliver is one of my favorite chefs in the entire world. Out of all of the people named in this article he is on a mission that I wholeheartedly agree with. Oliver’s goal is to create healthy meals for people especially children. On "Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution," he goes into schools to get rid of their unhealthy lunch programs and have them replaced with healthy and delicious food. I can’t get enough of this show and in turn I can’t get enough of him!
3 Robert Irvine
A lot of people like to compare Gordon Ramsay and Robert Irvine. While I see their similarities, they also have a lot of difference. Both chefs save failing restaurants, but on top of that Irvine also had a show called "Dinner: Impossible," which featured him cooking a huge amount of food in a small amount of time. He’s so much fun to watch and I always find myself getting nervous that he won’t finish in time - even though I’ve never actually seen him fail.
4 Bobby Flay
"Throwdown with Bobby Flay" is definitely my favorite out of all of the shows this chef is on. A lot of people don’t like him, but I love watching him compete against people who don’t have as much experience as him. I’m not a big fan of competition shows, but this one is definitely worth checking out because it’s different than all of the rest. He may not be the most entertaining to watch, but I don’t let that stop me!
5 Duff Goldman
Duff Goldman is the only chef discussed on this list that has chosen to work with desserts. Chef Goldman’s bakery Charm City Cakes was featured on the show "Ace of Cakes." He now is on the show "Sugar High," which is a lot like "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" in the sense that Goldman travels around the country trying different foods. The difference here is that on "Sugar High," he only tries dessert type food. Who wouldn’t want to try different sweets?! I know I would!
6 Guy Fieri
"Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" is one of my favorite shows to watch on The Food Network! I love seeing all of the different foods and plan on visiting quite a few of the restaurants. Fieri is always quick with the cheesy one liners that might not be funny, but make me laugh due to how corny they are. He definitely has one of the coolest jobs out of all of the chefs in this article. I’m a picky eater, but I’d still love to drive around and try all of the wacky foods that he’s gotten his hands on.
7 Curtis Stone
A cute guy, with an Australian accent, who knows how to cook – who wouldn’t love him?! I first saw Curtis Stone on "Take Home Chef" and haven’t been able to get enough of him since! The point of the show is that he would find people in the supermarket, go home with them, and help them make a meal for their family, significant other, or whoever they lived with. Imagine going out for a mundane shopping trip and being approached by this cutie asking you to let him help you cook?! I know I’d jump at the opportunity.
I’m sure there are people who would disagree with a few of the chefs on this list. There are so many to choose from that it’s so hard to just choose seven! Which chefs do you agree with? Who would you remove from the list?
