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.
