We're all obsessed with celebrity chefs. At any moment in the world, there is at least one television on, and it's playing Chopped. So when you're thinking about the famous TV chefs you'd like to cook for you, a handy list of the best celebrity chefs is probably exactly what you need to jump start your foodie brain waves! Take a look at this list of celebrity chefs with the best food, vote up those you wish were your own person chef for a day (or even just a meal) and downvote the ones who you think might serve you raw chicken or something else gross. 

Are you a big fan of some of the greats, like Wolfgang Puck or Jamie Oliver? The latter's cooking has had a focus on not only being delicious, but making sure that the food is actually healthy for you as well, which is always a plus. Or maybe you're more of the punk type, and want to get Nadia G's humor as well as tasty comfort food? No matter what your food preferences are, this list of famous chefs with the best food will have something for you to enjoy! Whether you want to travel the world trying out new foods with Anthony Bourdain, or intense high-end cuisine like Gordon Ramsay, you'll find what you're looking for!

So scroll on down and get to voting for the greatest television chefs on the Food Network and beyond! Whether you want a beef Wellington or some kind of butter-filled Paula Deen concoction, let the world know with your votes.
