Where Famous Foodies Get Cooking

Sure, chefs have shiny, swanky kitchens on TV, but where do they fix their family feasts and midnight snacks at home? Some celebrity chefs use their TV riches to create a super-kitchen, like the drastic renovation Gordon Ramsay recently did on a kitchen that already cost about $820,000 and included a $110,000 stove. But as you’ll see in the following slides, Gordon is not necessarily the norm. We got up in the kitchens of chefs and famous food professionals to point out what was important to each of them and what special features they’ve installed.
