The Top Ten

Gordon Ramsay
This man is absolutely great! He's without a doubt best chef ever! I really love him, he's not so bad as you see on tv, he's really sweet when he's with his family and besides he really makes me laugh when he gets angry!
The mans a god he comes in all the top shows of cooking in the world like master chef and yells kitchen and blah blah blah he is amazing
I love you Gordon you really help people get their stuff together I watch kitchen nightmares, master chef and Hell's Kitchen.

2Jamie Oliver
Simplicity, creativity and freshness combined makes Jamie an artist of food, and being the best is about being an artist.
Jamie is personally my favorite chef, because he always lays influence on how to cook quality food from very few things and still feel great. He has been preaching the fact that the food should be home cooked, so that the nutrients remain intact, which I quite like.
He is amazing chef I ever see in my life. I wish I have a chance to test a food cook by him before I die. Gob bless you Jamie Oliver.

3Heston Blumenthal
As I read on wiki he is entirely self-taught. What I saw on telly he is totally modest, without unnecessary, showproducerdemanding, stupid, temper outbursts ( as we see in many other cooking shows) and unpretentiously funny, or actually... He is having fun. He is all about food and imagination. He is playing and experimenting with food to create new food. All the others just... Cook.
He is simply the best. Never seen a chef with so much imagination. Just watch his programmes need I say anymore
Totally unique incedible imagination, total genius, and total passion for perfection

4Sanjeev Kapoor
Sanjeev kapoor is also known as the king chef of ndian cuisine, other than Indian food he is also expert in fusing other cuisine with indian cuisines. He is simply the best, as he shares his all cookings tips and tricks with the viewers which are incredible
He is simply the best!

Best indian chef ever

5Marco Pierre White
Just remember, this man TAUGHT gordon ramsay, and heston.. Look in marco's cookbooks and you'll notice some very familiar dishes to what Gordon now claims he made up... This man is God when it comes to culinary excellence
Man! This guy taught Ramsey and Heston... For me he should be the best chef in the world... He knows perfection, techniques, flavors and etc.. He is my undoubtedly the best chef in the world
This man is a god in the kitchen. There's absolutely no question Marco is a top 3 chef of all time.

7Auguste Escoffier
Without a doubt everyone on this list would be nowhere without Escoffier. He created modern French cooking. By far #1. Personalities on T.V. don't stand a chance to this man.

8Sophie Dahl

9James Beard

10Julia Child

The Contenders

11Vikas Khanna
He is simple great with his innovations and different type of food and his own personality

12Paul Bocuse
Yeah, Jamie Oliver is way better than Bocuse. Please, the only thing Oliver can do is spit in the food when he talks and burn food.

13Jacques Pepin
He was the chef for Charles de Gaulle and two other French Head of State
He is also the writer of "La technique ", the most popular French Cuisine Textbook.
Nobody comes close to his knowledge and technique.
Sad that this culinary genius is #13. Most ahead of him here may not be anywhere near gis talent or knowledge.
French are the best chefs in the world

Godzila is the best
He really does change villages
What is this doing here

This guy can cook
