Famous Chefs

What about famous chefs? Don't miss the opportunity to know who they are and how they get famous: you'll be surely inspired from their stories and recipes. If you watch BBC, it’s pretty likely you have come across famous chef Heston Blumenthal. The self-taught chef is known for inventing at his restaurant The Fat Duck, outside London, a new set of cooking rules.

And René Redzepi? The Danish-Albanian chose his career as a chef almost by chance, starting at El Bulli, and is now the famous chef of Noma, in Copenhagen, considered world's best restaurant according to World's 50 Best Restaurants list.

Rene Redzepi, Heston Blumenthal, but also Grant Achatz, Massimo Bottura, Juan Mari and Elena Arzak are some examples of the lucky great chefs that have been dragged out of obscurity or industry-limited interest, to fame and worldwide mass success, writing books, owning restaurants and cooking schools. On Fine Dining Lovers you could find a precious collection of stories, blog posts, videos, pictures and recipes of these and other famous chefs.
