Battle of Celebrity ‘Foodies’ — Whose Books Are Best? Who's the Best Cook? And More


We’ve wound our way through the world of A-lister foodies to find the ones you need to pay attention to

The Battle of Celebrity ‘Foodies’

Best Chef Skills: Oprah Winfrey

From making Tibetan dumplings, to her pie-decorating skills, to spilling the secret for the perfect corn fritters, there’s no element of cooking that Oprah hasn’t mastered. She cooks like a chef by using recipes for inspiration rather than guidance, and letting her knowledge, tastes, and skills lead the way.

Best Cook: Chrissy Teigen

Best Dinner Party Host: Lauren Conrad

Best Meals Out: Beyoncé and Jay-Z

Best Instagram Account: Haylie Duff

Best Kitchen: Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz’s kitchen strikes the perfect balance between beauty and practicality. The emerald green cabinets, brass countertops, huge oven, and ebony-stained floors come together to make the dream cooking space. Diaz says that she spends a lot of time in the kitchen, so it was important to her that it be an inviting, but useable place.

Best Wine: Francis Ford Coppola

Most Green-Thumbed: Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel has a garden full of edibles. Although she does admit to having a gardener to help her out, anyone who successfully grows Kabocha squash, tangerines, zucchini, lemons, and plums in her garden is a green-thumbed queen, at least as far as we’re concerned.
