Elvis Presley may have been the King, but even a king wouldn't be fit to consume these meals. Elvis, brought up on southern cooking, ate a lot of weird things. It is no doubt his unhealthy diet led to his declining health, leading to an early death at the age of 42. The drugs helped, though.
If you're a real history aficionado, you probably have thought about what it'd be like to hang out with your favorite historical figures. You might have wanted to guzzle beer with Churchill, talk philosophy with Plato, or even smoke pot with Jerry Garcia. Of course, these things are pretty obvious.

We live in a golden age of chefs. Between your Batalis and Bouluds, your Vongerichtens and Riperts, your Masas and Morimotos, New York is bubbling over with cooking legends who not only practice world-class gastronomy but also manage to turn themselves into millionaires. So here’s a question: Where are all the women? Despite the fact that women make up the vast majority of home cooks, and despite four-plus decades of modern feminism, women still run just a small percentage of top kitchens in New York and elsewhere. In a predominantly male dominated industry, female chefs are still an exception, but women are moving to stake their claim as the best out there. These ten women have made their names well known for creating delicious dishes and inspiring younger generations to follow their passions in the culinary arts.

When a chef's popularity goes mainstream, they start appearing all over the media, making guest appearances on talk shows, hosting their own shows on the Food Network, and leading a book signing ceremony at Barnes & Noble. In short, they become celebrities. With so many celebrity chefs in the business today, how can you tell who’s a major player and who’s a pretender? An influential celebrity chef leaves a legacy behind, and that’s what each of these ten chefs, in their own unique way, has done. So without further ado, let’s kick this thing up a notch and look at a handful of influential celebrity chefs and find out why these male chefs are at the top of their game.

The one thing that all the most innovative women in food have in common, though, is the impact that they are having on our own eating habits.
