From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The term celebrity chef applies to a class of chefs who are well known for presenting cookery advice and demonstrations via mass media, especially television. The term is sometimes also used in a derogatory way - implying some one who has "sold out" to the media or the art of cooking, who has not learned the craft through years as a working chef in a restaurant.

The term may also be applied to a historically famous chef such as Antoine Carême and Martino da Como.
