Taste dishes made by your favourite celebrity chef restaurants

From Kitchen Nightmares to Jamie’s Italy, some of the most popular television programmes on air today are cooking shows from personalities like Gordon Ramsey, Jamie Oliver and Heston Blumenthal.

And while many know them for their time on television, these culinary masters all got their start in the kitchen, and today are the names behind some of the most popular restaurants in Britain.

While you won’t find most celebrity chefs in the kitchen of their own restaurants every night, many are known to frequent their own establishments regularly to have a meal and check up on their teams, offering diners the chance for a little celebrity spotting along with their mains.

Sample dishes made by celebrity chefs

From the weird and wonderful to classic dishes done right, the most famous celebrity chefs in the world have taken their expertise to create exciting menus to delight diners with a memorable feast. Some of the most popular celebrity chef restaurants include:

  • Fifteen – set against the beautiful Watergate Bay in Cornwall, Jamie Oliver’s flagship restaurant, Fifteen, is a meal with a difference. This concept restaurant chain first opened its doors in London in 2002 and has since expanded to several other locations including this one in Cornwall. Along with a great meal you’ll be supporting a great cause – all the proceeds from the restaurants go to supporting underprivileged youths through training and mentoring and the opportunity to work inside the now famous kitchens.
  • Restaurant Gordon Ramsay – This 3 Michelin-starred eatery in the heart of London is chef Gordon Ramsay’s flagship restaurant and boasts an impeccable menu along with an equally impressive wine list. Since it opened its doors in 1998 the restaurant has been a magnet for foodies and celebrities alike and is a top choice for diners celebrating special occasions.
  • The Fat Duck – Heston Blumenthal’s much talked-about hideaway in West Birkshire is famous for its innovative dishes, unique preparation methods and fresh ingredients. His signature style not only won the restaurant 3 Michelin stars but also helped it earn the accolade as the best restaurant in the world in 2005 by Restaurant Magazine.
  • Marco Pierre White Steak & Alehouse – This trendy London eatery reflects celebrity chef Marco Pierre White’s approach to cooking, serving up timeless English dishes and superior cuts of meat for diners to enjoy, all inside an elegant dining room that sets the scene for a special supper.
