Whilst scrolling through a vibrant newsfeed full of colourful dishes, sparkling kitchens and fresh ingredients, something caught my eye. A picture of Lorenzo Cogo, the youngest Michelin-starred chef-owner in Italy, posted from an account called @handsomechefs.

Delving further, I opened up an account full of pictures of famous chefs, greeted with the bio explaining the account would be posting “photos of the world’s most handsome – looking chefs”. The rules? They must cook great food. The account claims that it’s the “chefs who rule the world now”. Here, here!

So we’ve made a list of the top 10 most liked images from the account, therefore claiming the status of the top 10 most handsome chefs in the world!

Is there anyone not on this list who you think deserves to be? Let us know in the comments below, or upload their picture using our app, Chef+ or tweet us!
