The 20 Most Famous Chefs in the World, According to Google - Chef's Pencil (1)

When you think about world-renowned chefs, what’s the first name that comes to mind? Is it Gordon Ramsay? Jamie Oliver? Wolfgang Puck? Martha Stewart? With so many celebrity chefs constantly popping up in our news feeds and TV sets, it can be hard to keep track of what everybody’s doing, and even harder to decide who’s the cream of the crop – pun intended.

So, we stopped trying to figure it out on our own and went to Google for answers. We wanted to find out who are the 20 most popular chefs in the world, based on the number of search engine queries. As it turns out, Michelin stars, accolades, and an unlimited meme potential aren’t as important as you might think.

You might even be surprised by some of the names missing from our list. Keep reading to find out which are the most googled chefs on the web in 2022, and learn more about how they earned a spot on the list.

1. Gordon Ramsay

The 20 Most Famous Chefs in the World, According to Google - Chef's Pencil (2)

Surprise, surprise – to no one, Gordon Ramsay is the most popular chef in the world. The ultra-famous chef and TV personality is probably the most well-known celebrity chef ever. His career includes a total of 16 (!) Michelin stars, numerous awards, and a long list of popular TV shows, including Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef US, and Kitchen Nightmares, which have inspired endless memes.

Ramsay is well-known for his cooking talent, his on-screen charisma, and his fiery temper – there is a lot of beeping going on whenever he makes a TV appearance, that’s all we’re going to say.

He was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 2006, by Queen Elizabeth II, he has a black belt in karate, he loves cycling and fitness, and he’s even competed in several Ironman events. It looks like Gordon Ramsay can pretty much do anything.

2. Guy Fieri

The 20 Most Famous Chefs in the World, According to Google - Chef's Pencil (3)

According to the number of searches on Google, Guy Fieri is the second most popular chef in the world in 2022.

The Emmy-award-winning American restaurateur is one of the most beloved TV personalities in the biz – and one of the most prolific. He’s featured in various cooking programs on the Food Network, such as Guy’s Big Bite, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and Minute to Win It.

Besides his television work, Fieri has written several cookbooks and reportedly owns more than 70 restaurants and 14 brands. And while he does not have a Michelin star to his name, Fieri has other accolades to be proud of.

A new three-year, $80 million contract with the Food Network signed in 2021 makes him the highest-paid chef on cable television.

3. Michael Caines

The 20 Most Famous Chefs in the World, According to Google - Chef's Pencil (4)

The third most popular name on Google hails from Devon, England, and is one of the UK’s most celebrated chefs.

In 2017, Michael Caines opened Lympstone Manor, a luxurious country house and hotel built around a historic 1760’s estate in East Devon. Caines dedicated three years of his life to transforming the Georgian mansion into a world-class destination for food lovers.

His hard work paid off, and Lympstone Manor earned a Michelin star just six months after opening. Caine’s resumé does not end there; he cooked for the British Prime Minister at 10 Downing Street and has made several appearances on MasterChef and other TV broadcasts. Impressively, he’s done all of this one-handed, as he lost his right arm in an accident back in 1994.

4. Jamie Oliver

The 20 Most Famous Chefs in the World, According to Google - Chef's Pencil (5)

The fourth most popular chef in the world needs no introduction. British chef Jamie Oliver is one of the most beloved figures in the business, known for his casual and relaxed approach to modern cuisine. He has featured in more than 30 series, including the award-winning The Naked Chef, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, and Jamie’s Kitchen.

Oliver is also the second best-selling author in the UK, surpassed only by Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling, and is also somewhat of a movie star, voicing the character of the health inspector in 2007’s Ratatouille.

5. Bobby Flay

The 20 Most Famous Chefs in the World, According to Google - Chef's Pencil (6)

Flay has a degree in culinary arts and is a graduate of the French Culinary Institute in NYC, which was at that time one of the best culinary schools in America (the school is now permanently closed).

Fun fact: before getting his break in the industry, Flay worked the floor at the American Stock Exchange. However, the stock market wasn’t for him, and he wasted no time in turning to the kitchen.
