Lorena Garcia: Even before the Taco Bell Cantina Bell menu, this lil’ Latin mama was busy solidifying her place as a TV personality, dining consultant and celebrity chef speaker for many different events. Lorena’s latest gig kicked off last week as a celebrity chef contestant on Adam Richman’s new TV cooking competition series Food Fighters. Yet her work as a prominent TV host and culinary personality remains secondary to her efforts to provide the public with healthy recipe alternatives specifically through her Big Chef, Little Chef program and her signature cookbooks.
Anthony Bourdain: At this point, the only part unknown about this celebrity chef is when his reign of culinary conquest will end. This year Anthony and his CNN show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown have been nominated for a total of 6 Primetime Emmy Awards. Already a 2-time Emmy winner, Anthony won a Peabody Award in early 2014 for his series and it’s clear the public continues to remain captivated by his efforts to uncover culinary traditions from around the world.

The celebrity chef turned TV star is great behind the camera and her professionalism and entertaining personality continue to help her climb in the ranks of today’s most popular celebrity chefs.
Fabio Viviani: In a move resembling that of superstar basketball player Lebron James, Fabio Viviani is taking his talents to South Beach.

Marcel Vigneron: Often considered a “Mad Scientist” of gastronomy, Chef Marcel Vigneron will face off against former Top Chef winner and Fancy Feast’s newest spokesperson Richard Blais in the premiere episode of Bravo’s Top Chef Duels. The duel format allows each chef to choose a course or dish to challenge their opponent and the final duel features a 3-course meal to win over the judges. Marcel continues to find air time on some of the industry’s top TV series and a win against a Top Chef like Richard could reheat his career.

Shane Miller: GQ magazine food correspondent Alan Richman labeled Houston “the most electrifying food destination in America” and that can be attributed in part to the recent success of local chef Shane Miller.

The exciting episode aired this week and Shane won the competition and took home $18,000.
