It’s no secret that becoming a world famous chef is one of the most difficult endeavours of the modern age, being even more difficult than reaching stardom in Hollywood. It means putting in countless years of endless refinement, always striving to make the best dishes from the freshest ingredients, and never allowing any mistakes to happen.
Most famous chefs started out by going to culinary school to form a basis for their skill and chosen cuisine, after which they will work on the line for a good number of years. Only the most daring, competitive, and innovative chefs will move on to gain fame, and an even small number of these will earn Michelin stars or cause enough of a stir to get their own restaurants. These are some of the best chefs of the modern age.
