Celebrity chefs all share a love for food - but aside being famous for their talent on cooking, they usually have a certain personality trait that has given them an advantage to their success.
From angry chefs to funny chefs, to chefs who want to make a difference, today we are celebrating our seven favourite culinary geniuses.
Unique trait: Brilliant accent
Who doesn’t love Gino? He is, of course, most famous for his talents in the kitchen. But he also makes appearances on shows like This Morning, where he not only has the viewers in stitches, but also the presenters of the show.
Holly and Phil often end up having laughing fits so hard that they struggle to present, and of course that only rubs off on us.
Unique trait: Anger
Gordon Ramsay is a household name, thanks to his many different cooking shows in both the UK and the states.
We definitely wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of Gordon. He is known for his hilarious angry outbursts and insults that often go viral on social media, as well as expert cooking skills.
He has also racked up a total of 16 Michelin stars - not bad, hey.
Unique trait: Making a difference
Jamie Oliver has done a lot to promote healthy eating and better diet. In 2005, he began a campaign which was backed by the government to introduce children to healthy eating.
Despite the unfortunate collapse of his restaurant chain, he is a hugely successful and popular celebrity chef, and even became a Member of the Order of the British Empire in 2003.
We’ll also never forget when he was a great sport to Ant and Dec’s undercover prank. This one never gets old.
Unique trait: His laugh
Ainsley Harriott has had two of his own cooking shows; Can’t Cook, Won’t Cook and Ready Steady Cook.
As well as his culinary skills and television presenting, he is also known for his entertaining personality and humour.
He has published a whopping 12 books and sold over 2 million worldwide. So Ainsley really does have quite a few tricks up his sleeve.
Unique trait: King of the cakes
Paul is probably better defined as a baker, rather than a chef. We’ve included him on this list anyway because he is a popular name in the food and drink industry.
Along with Mary Berry, he was the star of The Great British Bake Off, the baking show that has viewers glued to their screens each week, licking their lips at the sight of the tiramisus.
We also like that he can take a joke - this clip from the Graham Norton Show had us giggling.
The Hairy Bikers
Unique trait: Hairy... obvs.
David Myers and Si King are the two halves that make the whole of the Hairy Bikers.
They’ve presented countless shows - all with the Hairy Bikers in the title, and have also featured on celebrity special shows such as The Weakest Link.
More regulars on This Morning, the two know how to entertain and how to wind up Holly and Phil.
Antony Worrall Thompson
Unique trait: A long fancy name
AWT has his fingers in a lot of pies, so to speak, since he is a celebrity chef, a television presenter and radio broadcaster.
In his first restaurant, he only served starters and puddings, an interesting fact that people often remember him for. Antony's likeable personality also landed him a spot in the second series of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
