Being a top chef is so much more than being able to cook well. It's about passing on all you've learnt to the next generation, so that they might push the boundaries of gastronomy even further. The teacher and protégé relationship in cooking is a special one, sometimes fraught, but ultimately rewarding for all parties.
But do you know who trained who in the world of cooking? The infographic below from ResDiary shows how some of the world's top chefs are interconnected, and as you can see, the Roux brothers seemed to have trained more than most, including Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White and Sat Bains.
Take a look at an interactive version of this infographic and also, check out this footage of Marco Pierre White training a young Gordon Ramsay at Harveys in London. You can see where Ramsay got his exacting standards from: along with Pierre White, he had the Rouxs, Joël Robuchon and Pierre Koffmann as teachers.
