Famous chefs in awe of other famous chefs…love it! While we, John Q Public, watch talented top chefs from afar (and hopefully closeup, if we’re lucky), these pics on some well-known chefs’ Instagrams prove that they, too, get just as jazzed to be in the company of their idols. Here are a few fun photos of them loving on some of their own faves. Enjoy!
From his Insta, it appears talented Top Chef winner, Michael Voltaggio, is a big fanboy of his favorite chefs, and doesn’t hesitate to share the pics. Love this one of him with chef icon Nobu at the 2017 Aspen Food & Wine Festival https://www.instagram.com/p/BVaBADqB5kO/?taken-by=mvoltaggio Also, love this pic that he shared (via Chef Graham Elliot), of a whole gaggle of top chefs. I spy Andrew Zimmern, Daniel Boulud, Bryan Voltaggio, and Sean Brock going gaga over some unnamed someone on stage at the Festival. (Wish I knew, as he wasn’t saying). And although Chef Michael’s looking unimpressed, I believe he just wanted to drink in the moment, LOL! https://www.instagram.com/p/BVYyMgpBNW9/?taken-by=mvoltaggio
Here’s a hilarious one of Aaron Sanchez, making no bones about his affection for another well-known chef. Could be because these two are working together on this season of Gordon Ramsay’s “MasterChef.” https://www.instagram.com/p/BXOxgT1nRQS/?taken-by=chef_aaronsanchez
Wrapping up with this endearing photo of Chef Rick Bayliss, with one of his earliest mentors, Alice Waters, https://www.instagram.com/p/BWlartKAnBE/?taken-by=rick_bayless known for her nearly four decades as a champion of sustainable agriculture, and for her well-known Berkeley, Calif. restaurant Chez Panisse http://www.chezpanisse.com/about/alice-waters/.
