What’s Cookin’ Good Lookin’? 12 Sexy Celeb Chefs

There’s nothing sexier than a man (or woman for that matter) who knows how to cook. Fortunately, my future husband is an amazing chef. In fact, he wooed me with a four-course meal the night he proposed. These 12 sexy chefs could serve me cold slugs and I'd still be begging for more.

British-born Jamie Oliver is popularly known as “The Naked Chef.” While his nickname is homage to the simplicity of his recipes, some people (myself included) wish it was in reference to his lack of clothing.

What’s sexier than a French man who travels the world and can cook? Nothing. Hence, Anthony Bourdain is an obvious addition to the list of sexiest chefs. I would have No Reservations about dating and mating with this foodie demi-god.
