Adam Richman: At one restaurant or another, we’ve all been a little jealous of America’s favorite traveling eating machine but the long line of rich and gargantuan eats took an obvious toll on his waistline. Adam’s departure from his mouth-watering Travel Channel show left many Man vs. Food fans lost without their lovable host, but the new and chiseled Adam Richman has lost a whopping 70 pounds since the show and is looking better than ever. Now this is a lose-lose situation we think Adam and his fans can both agree we’re happy to be involved in! Could Adam Richman be the next famous celebrity weight-loss spokesperson we see in future ad campaigns?

It takes a lot to become the commanding culinary force in such a huge city like NYC and Keith has built his reputation upon the finest qualities from the moment you step foot in one of his restaurants.
Bryson Billapando: While the U.S. men’s national soccer team is busy inspiring an entire nation for the next month, the team finds their inspiration in the talented team chef Bryson Billapando.

David Chang: For over 10 years Shake Shack has been a symbol of burger excellence in the NY food scene but a recent collaboration between celebrity chef David Change and the burger shack registered off the taste charts. A record breaking 400 people lined up to sample David’s Shake Shack 10year anniversary celebration “Shrimp Stack” burger.

The taste is only temporary, but the memories last a lifetime.
Vivian Howard: If you want to get a genuine taste of the southeast, look no further than North Carolina’s Vivian Howard.

Aside from chicken, Vivian also cooked up a 2-book deal with Little, Brown Publishing Company this week that will give her a new channel to showcase her gifts in the kitchen.
Jeremiah Bullfrog: Pop-up shops and art displays are indicative of any creative genius in popular culture today but celebrity chef Jeremiah Bullfrog was the first to bring his cooking on the road. The personal chef to rapper Rick Ross opened up his own pop-up restaurant at the Bonnaroo Music Festival last week. The GastroPod Diner was an extension of Jeremiah’s popular Miami food truck venture GastroPod which is well-known as one of the first operating food trucks in Miami. Like his hip-hop employer, Jeremiah is kicking culinary game like a boss and his position as a celebrity chef connected to such a prominent figure in pop culture could bode well for potential career opportunities that traditional chefs don’t have the ability to achieve.
