Best Chefs in the World

What makes a chef one of the best chefs in the world? Not only cooking skills, but a mix of creativity, talent and a lot of training in the kitchen. 

Nowadays chefs have become increasingly popular, and being a successful chef no longer means just spending several hours in the kitchen, staying at the hot stove and commandeering a brigade.

So what makes a good chef the best in the world? There is a lot of speculation around this topic, and several culinary experts wish to have a say in who is allowed access to this coveted Olympus. We will try to rationalize the elements that make Ferran Adrià, Rene Redzepi, Henston Blumenthal, Massimo Bottura, Juan Mari and his daughter Elena Arzak, the Roca Brothers, and many others the best chefs in the world.

Well, cooking skills aren’t really enough: talent, imagination, creativity and training are all must haves to become one of the best chefs in the world and maybe get some Michelin stars. Greatness is, therefore, elusive, and it has blessed those chefs that had more than whimsy and skills. It blessed those chefs that were able to make food entertainment and passion, beyond the ephemeral experience of food, gaining industry and customer recognition.
