With the influx of culinary competitions, programs and reality shows, Americans have become quite familiar with some of the best chefs in the country due to seeing their faces and witnessing their skills displayed across our television screen as a means of entertainment. By far the most popular of the culinary domination in television belongs to that of Bravo’s Top Chef that has not only taught many amateurs the proper techniques for preparing fine dining, but it has also created a new generation of celebrity chefs who see their own restaurants or ones that they head up, shoot to the top of the “must eat” list before they have even exited the popular show. Ironically, here in Atlanta we have a few celebrity chefs that not only reside in our Southern metropolis, but are also Executive Chefs and owners of some of the hottest restaurants in the city and just so happen to be Top Chef Alums. If you like a little famous sparkle with your food, enjoy the list of the top celebrity chefs in Atlanta. Bon Appétit!
