Twitter can be a tricky thing to navigate for someone who’s well-known. On one hand, it’s a great way to directly engage with fans and followers, and can help you stay on top of everything that’s going on in the Twitterverse. But on the other hand, one false move can put your entire career at risk and turn you into a social pariah. Thankfully, these chefs have nothing to worry about. If you’re at all interested in food and are on Twitter, we strongly suggest you follow them.
