Celebrity Chefs You Need to Follow on Twitter Right Now

Let's be honest: the majority of celebrity chef Twitter is dominated by endless strings of food photos and promotional plugs. But, the few that transcend the norm do it with grace, wit, and more than a few creatively devised hashtags. Anthony Bourdain, Hugh Acheson, David Chang -- these culinary giants, along with six of their esteemed colleagues, are true pros at hopping off TV screens and sliding into Twitter feeds.

Hugh Acheson

Big-time chef and Top Chef judge Hugh Acheson is constantly bringing the snark... and the farts, apparently.

Tom Colicchio

Fellow Top Chef-er Tom Colicchio's feed is 90% politics, 10% dad humor. Oh, and also some cooking stuff. 

Matthew Jennings

Townsman chef-owner Matthew Jennings not only reps his native Boston hard, he also says hilarious shit, and might even hook you up with Pearl Jam tickets.

Ruth Reichl

Culinary influencer and former Gourmet editor-in-chief Ruth Reichl's trippy-ass poetry is well worth the follow.

Eddie Huang

Celebrity chef, writer, and VICELAND star Eddie Huang always knows what's up and is never afraid to tell it like it is. Also, #SaveBabyFuture? Agreed.

David Chang

Nothing wrong with sports-obsessed mega-chef and restaurateur David Chang loving his dog and taking this weird photo. 

Alton Brown

Also nothing wrong with Food Network mainstay Alton Brown not having a dog. 

Anthony Bourdain

Everybody's favorite kitchen bad boy, writer and TV personality Anthony Bourdain is not only The Wire's most-devoted fan, he's also a seasoned traveler with many a well-worded airport opinion. 

Dale Talde

Two-time Top Chef cheftestant and restaurateur Dale Talde's takes on pop culture are, much like his kung pao chicken wings, hotter (and funnier) than most.
