These days, it seems like anyone with an ounce of personality and cooking skills has their own show. But not all chefs are created equal or deserve a place on this list! Here’s our pick of the most well-known, influential celebrity chefs and TV personalities ruling the marketplace, brought to you by the staff at Charles Grech Bistro.
An expert French chef by trade, the late Bourdain was known for his wit and unadulterated honesty concerning all things food. Bourdain moved out of the kitchen to become a culinary author and award-winning TV personality who preferred to travel the globe as host of the hit series “No Reservations”, sampling a range of international delicacies – such as raw seal eyeball – that would make the rest of us retch.
Gordon Ramsay takes life as a professional celebrity chef up a notch. Born in Scotland and raised in England, Ramsay boasts multiple successful eateries around the world, including the creatively-named Gordon Ramsay and Petrus. Clearly not content to simply demonstrate his cooking skills to patrons, the foul-mouthed chef wears many hats and has served as the distinguished host of “Hell’s Kitchen” and “Kitchen Nightmares”, making contestants and everyone involved shake in their boots.
Giada De Laurentiis
From writing recipe and children’s books to hosting Food Network’s “Giada at Home”, “Giada in Italy” and “Giada in Paradise”, Giada is everywhere! The Italian-born personality also has her own line of pasta sauces, offering a taste of Italy in a jar. De Laurentiis, a self-professed chocoholic, was inducted into the Culinary Hall of Fame in 2012.
One of the most widely- recognised celebrity chefs, the restaurateur, best-selling cookbook author and celebrity chef debuted his first TV show “The Naked Chef” in 1999, earning him worldwide fame, and followed by numerous TV series (Oliver’s Twist, Jamie’s Kitchen, Jamie Comfort Food…) Jamie Oliver is not one to rest on his laurels though! His empire includes cookery schools, smartphone apps, and even his own line of cookware, that ranges from baking tools to BBQs!
