With more and more chefs achieving celebrity status, interest in the exciting world of today's leading chefs is higher than ever.

More than 60 leading chefs-including some of the newest up-and-coming-discuss the inspiration, effort, and quirks of fate that turned would-be painters, anthropologists, and football players into culinary artists.
