Let’s Meet The Best Chefs In The World

In these last months, we have talked about many different things. Cookbooks, kitchen equipment, crazy ingredients, and many other things. But one thing we never talked about is the faces behind witch cookbook, recipe or restaurant. So this article will be dedicated to the persons who spend their lives to serve others. With this in mind, we decided to share with you the list of the best chefs in the world of 2019.

This list of the best chefs in the world is a compilation of the French magazine Le Chef. We decide to share with you the list of the Le Chef Magazine because we think this is the most impartial list you can find. The Le Chef list is compiled by asking two and three-starred Michelin chefs to provide a list of five names they think best represent the cooking profession and one name they would like to see at the top of the list.

Although we considered this list impartial, the previous editions have been criticized for being largely biased in favor of French cuisine and French chefs. In our opinion, make a list of the best chefs in the world is a very difficult task because choose a chef instead of another is not so simple as it might look. These kind of problems aren’t new in this area, no matter how much the rules change, there will always be problems, because there will always be different opinions!

So, without further delay let’s get down with this list!
