It’s the question many professional chefs hate — "What’s in your fridge?"
Chef Amanda Cohen, of New York City's Dirt Candy restaurant, explained her hatred of the question to Eater: "Do you care? Does it really matter what’s in my fridge?" Like many other chefs, Cohen doesn't see the point to this query. Because she’s cooking five nights a week at her restaurant, there’s not much cooking going on at home, and therefore, there's nothing in her fridge.
Here’s the problem: The "What’s in your fridge?" question may seem unnecessary to chefs, but amateur cooks and fans of celebrity chefs often enjoy reading what the chefs have in their refrigerators — even if it’s nothing at all — and what they prepare for meals at home.
So, even if the question is cliché, pardon us while we indulge our inner fangirl and take a glimpse at what is inside celebrity chefs’ home fridges.
Who’s hooked on using a high-end coffeemaker? Which chefs have kitschy collections? Who uses foot-pedal-operated sinks? Which ones love mayo or beer, and who has four refrigerators?
Take a peak with us inside the refrigerators and kitchens of celebrity chefs including Tyler Florence, Rachael Ray, Mario Batali, and Wolfgang Puck.
