Celebrity chefs, and their recipes, have been popular in the last years, more than ever before even. With shows hosted by Gordon Ramsey in both USA and Europe, or European shows hosted by chefs such as Raymond Blanc or Jamie Oliver, whenever you turn on the TV a cooking show can be watched. But these celebrity shows have changed the landscape and often it’s difficult to recognize and know who the real top chefs are. Is Gordon Ramsey truly a top chef? Are Jamie Oliver’s seemingly simple recipes, in his quest to put ‘healthy’ back in eating, real exquisite pearls to try out? Is Paula Deen the cooking queen you want to let prepare your holiday dinner?
We looked further than the main cooking TV shows and went on a hunt to discover the top restaurants world wide and had a look at the most known, popular, top chefs in the United States of America.
