Celebrity chefs share a few things in common. The first of course is their discerning taste and exacting standards. The second is less obvious, but makes complete sense – their love of watches.
After all, a man who uses only well-engineered materials and the best ingredients in the kitchen will have abiding respect for the craftsmanship that goes into fine watches.
Here are the favorites of these chefs cum watch enthusiasts:
Considered one of the most influential chefs today, Anthony Bourdain has made a profession out of understanding the appetites of others. The chef-turned-food-chronicler travels extensively for CNN’s Parts Unknown, so he prioritizes comfort and doesn’t wear any jewelry, or even a belt. Photo from The New Yorker on Twitter
Gordon Ramsay, Multi-Michelin star chef and MasterChef host, is best known for his blunt comments and wisecracks about contestants. If anything, it shows his passion about cooking and the food industry. Ramsay seems to hold the same standards for his watch collection, as he has only a few watches, but of top notch quality.
Alton Brown is best known as the chef / scientist on Good Eats, where he discovers the origins of ingredients and dissects culinary customs. But what not many people know is that he is as much of a watch geek as he is a food geek – a passion that his father passed on to him as a child.
