Chopped: Which Celeb Chefs Didn’t Make Klout’s Celebrity Chef List?

Lithium Alumni (Retired)

Whether you’re in the US and about to enjoy Thanksgiving or somewhere else in the world about to kick off the holiday season, food is central to most of our celebrations.

 

Some of us are natural chefs capable of serving up new dishes with ease. Others rely on recipes passed down from one generation to the next. Some of us may be learning to cook with services like Blue Apron (certainly a favorite among many of my friends). And yes, there are those of us who just watch mouth-watering cooking shows on TV. For all of us, food and dining are a thrill.

The last decade has certainly proven this true—with a rise in celebrity chefs of every variety exercising their skill in cooking classes as well as cutthroat competitions. Some are perpetually charming. Others scream and yell at the top of their lungs. All rivet us with their creativity and passion.

 

Here at Lithium, we wondered which of those chefs rivet us the most on social channels. Sure, all these culinary masters can whip up a tasty dinner. But which of them can whip up a social following? Herewith is our special Thanksgiving-inspired list of the top 25 celebrity chefs according to their Klout scores. So if you’re looking for a little holiday cooking inspiration, follow some of these masters: we’ve provided their Twitter handles to make it easy for you.

 

And wherever you are in the world, happy eating!
