Some chefs cook, and some chefs sit on their couch at home watching others create unbelievable dishes. You may be the one who sits at home trying to recreate these beautiful dishes, all the while cutting your finger every chance you get.
Nevermind the average person’s lack of excellence in culinary fineries. The truth is that it’s pretty amazing what the chefs on TV can do, and it’s an American pastime to watch them work. Here is a quick shoutout to some of America’s top TV chefs of all time.
Martha Stewart is a name that has survived generations. She’s had her ups and downs, but when fathers and daughters can’t agree on clothing, they can always agree on the recipes of Martha Stewart.
Good ole Martha has been on the scene for nearly thirty years, and she’s turning houses into homes with that special touch of hers. Martha Stewart laid the foundation for modern-day celebrity chefs, and she did it with class.
Emeril Lagasse came on the scene with a “Bam!” instead of a bang, and you can bet his enthusiasm was a notch louder. Emeril’s authenticity and originality placed him in the history books as the first celebrity chef to sign a contract with seven figures in the offer
Emeril setup a cooking show with a live studio audience and a band. You might expect to see such setups on a late-night show, but Emeril shifted the momentum with his show “Emeril Live” on the Food Network.
Guy Fieri is another distinct character on the food scene in the U.S., and you simply can’t help but love the “guy.” His passion for food and fun renewed hope in red-blooded Americans.
Guy has done far more than just fiddle with food throughout his career. He’s already been a game show host, and he doesn’t show signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Gordon Ramsey is best known for his treacherous language, but he’s also a world-renowned chef. His adult cooking shows/contests are raw, and Ramsey shows little pity for cooks who can’t keep up in the kitchen.
However, Gordon Ramsey’s Master Chef Jr. television show introduced a whole new side to the rough and tumble knife slinger. Ramsey is surprisingly excellent with children, and his show provides a sturdy platform for young chefs to grow their talents.
Like Emeril, Rachael Ray was a Food Network original. She put out nearly thirty seasons of 30 minute meals, and she’s gone on to have her hand in a little bit of everything since. Ray has put out her own health food meals, and she even has her own dog food line.
