About This Quiz

Ahh ... the joy of cooking. A lovely kitchen experience is filled with the freshest ingredients, "good" vanilla and plenty of "It's raw!" phrases from Gordon Ramsay. And if you know some stuff about food, you probably know a thing or two about cooking shows, and more specifically, some famous cooking stars. Some of the most iconic ones include Bobby Flay, Guy Fieri, Duff Goldman and Martha Stewart. But these stars are no different than the rest of us, because even you can become a television chef!

Whether you love Southern food like Paula Deen or you're an expert in Italian cuisine like Giada De Laurentiis, you've got a hidden inner chef that the world doesn't know about. Maybe it's your signature smoked salmon pizza that made Wolfgang Puck popular, or perhaps it's your world-class cake skills that are similar to Duff Goldman. But remember, if you're going to be a star of the food world, you'll have to prepare your cooking skills for TV shows like "Chopped," "Iron Chef America" and maybe even "Hell's Kitchen." So which famous chef matches to your personality the best? The only way to find out is by taking this tasty quiz right now!
