From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In its strictest sense, a celebrity chef is someone who has become well known for his/her cooking. In practical terms, however, the term grew in popularity during the 1990s. It accompanied an explosion in popularity of cookery programmes on television and cookery features in the printed press. The name celebrity chef is sometimes used in a slightly derogatory way - a celebrity chef who has "sold out" to the media being seen as somehow inferior to a traditional chef in a restaurant.
