This week we take a look at the ten most influential chefs. As tastemakers within the food industry, these chefs influence everyone from expert restauranteurs to the casual cook at home.
There have been some changes in the rankings since we measured last spring. Andrew Zimmern remains the most influential chef but there are three newcomers. At number seven is Mark Bittman who often tweets his favorite recipes. Jay Terauchi, who blogs about his food adventures, comes close behind. Finally in ninth place, Mario Batali responds directly to his fans’ questions on how to pair ingredients or what restaurant to try.
So if you’re looking for a new burger joint or just want some tips to pump up your pesto, check out these top chefs.
