The chefs below are some of the most identifiable in world gastronomy, but would you recognise them back in the day?
Some are definitely easier to recognise than others, but we'll give you a clue as to the hirsuite chef in the centre of the top image – he's featured in one of the photos further down too.
It's fascinating to see these chefs back when they were young and extremely hungry, and on the cusp of, or already doing, amazing things to change the course of gastronomy.
