60 Celebrity Chef Copycat Recipes

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

Our favorite celebrity chefs pull out all the stops on television: Rachael Ray effortlessly whips up savory meals on her daytime show, Gordon Ramsay strikes fear into the hearts of everyone on shows like "Hell's Kitchen" and "Kitchen Nightmares," and Bobby Flay dares anyone to challenge him to a cook-off on Food Network's "Beat Bobby Flay." Here's your chance to really put the cooking skills and creativity of these and other well-known TV cooks to the test — by making some of their best recipes at home. 

Our recipe developers have not only tested these recipes, they've also added fun twists that introduce unique flavors or take advantage of cooking shortcuts, like turning Julia Child's famous Coq Au Vin into a one-pot meal, or making Marcela Hazan's tomato sauce in an Instant Pot. That's just the tip of the iceberg: You'll also find recipes from chefs like Jamie Oliver, Ina Garten, Giada De Laurentiis, Nigella Lawson, and Anthony Bourdain. 

You'll also find unique chef recipes shared exclusively with Mashed, including steak au poivre from Ludo LeFebvre, lobster mac and cheese from Jernard Wells, and Charity Morgan's vegan strawberry-orange shortcake. Here are 60 copycat celebrity chef recipes you need to try. 

1. Gordon Ramsay's Pork Belly

In his YouTube video on preparing pork belly, "Hell's Kitchen" chef Gordon Ramsay calls his braising method "an amazing way to cook a cheap cut of meat." In Jennine Rye's take on his recipe, you follow the same steps to score the surface of the pork belly before searing it in a pan and then letting it slowly roast in the oven. Instead of Ramsay's fennel, our recipe goes with a classic pairing of pork and apples: Apple cider in the braising liquid and sliced apples in the pan. 

Recipe: Gordon Ramsay's Pork Belly

2. Ina Garten's Roast Chicken

Of all the recipes shared on her shows and in her books, "The Barefoot Contessa" Ina Garten's most popular recipe may very well be her roast chicken. The recipe appeared in her first cookbook more than 20 years ago and remains a fan favorite. This adaptation of Garten's recipe includes orange slices and rosemary sprigs along with onions and garlic. Mayonnaise replaces the traditional butter or oil rub for a bronzed and crispy surface on the roasted chicken. 

Recipe: Ina Garten's Roast Chicken

3. Bobby Flay's Burger

His Bobby's Burgers restaurants are open across the U.S. and even in Paris — so it's for certain that Bobby Flay knows how to make an incredible burger. His "Perfect Burger" recipe includes an 80/20 blend of ground beef for the juiciest texture. In this twist on Flay's recipe, cheese and bacon are folded into the burger patties, and after being grilled they're topped with classic condiments like yellow mustard, pickles, and a homemade special sauce. Your family will love these thick burgers stuffed with melty bits of cheese.

Recipe: Bobby Flay's Burger

4. Anthony Bourdain's Boeuf Bourguignon

Of all the foods that Chef Anthony Bourdain served at his former New York City restaurant Les Halles, the simple, hearty Boeuf Bourguignon was one of his favorites, according to Serious Eats. After searing cubes of beef and sautéing onions, all of the ingredients go into a Dutch oven for a long, slow simmer. The flavors of the beef, wine, and herbs deepen and develop as the meat becomes tender. Our twist on Bourdain's recipe is to use sweet port wine and sprigs of rosemary.

Recipe: Anthony Bourdain's Boeuf Bourguignon

5. Giada De Laurentiis' Lemon Spaghetti With A Twist

According to her website, Giada De Laurentiis' lemon pasta recipe was inspired by food she had in Capri, Italy, and it's now the best-selling dish at her Las Vegas restaurant. Time to find out why people love it so much! This adaptation from recipe developer Christina Musgrave has a butter-based, lemony sauce with a few flakes of red pepper for a warm hint of heat. Fried sage leaves make a beautiful garnish and add savory flavor. Serve it with a salad or buttered rolls. 

Recipe: Giada De Laurentiis' Lemon Spaghetti With A Twist

6. Guy Fieri's Dragon Breath Chili

This chili is over-the-top delicious — but you would expect nothing less from Guy Fieri, host of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." The recipe list for this big batch of spicy chili is long, but includes many spices you may already have in your pantry. The ingredients also include four types of peppers, beer, and beans. Our twist on Fieri's recipe is to replace the meats with plant-based sausage and crumbles: That way, everyone can enjoy this intensely flavorful chili. Serve bowls with toppings like cilantro, sour cream, and shredded cheese.

Recipe: Guy Fieri's Dragons Breath Chili

7. Rachael Ray's Carbonara

Pasta carbonara holds a special place in Rachel Ray's heart: In an interview with People, she shares that it's her husband John Cusimano's favorite dish and she makes it for him every Valentine's Day. Ray's recipe includes the traditional ingredients of pancetta, egg yolks, and Romano cheese. Our take on her recipe adds color and heft with the addition of chopped kale and ground Italian sausage. This flavor-packed dish is simple enough to make for dinner any weeknight. 

Recipe: Rachel Ray's Pasta Carbonara

8. Alex Guarnaschelli's Eggplant Parmesan

The cheesy, layered eggplant casserole from "Iron Chef" Alex Guarnaschelli is rich and delicious. Make it for a cozy weekend dinner or for guests at a dinner party. Our recipe puts a little twist on the original by adding shredded carrots and kale for more veggie flavor, and pan-frying the eggplant slices instead of deep-frying. Pro tip: soaking, salting, or deseeding the eggplant slices before cooking them will remove their bitterness. 

Recipe: Alex Guarnaschelli's Eggplant Parmesan

9. Nigella Lawson's Buttermilk Chicken

"How To Be A Domestic Goddess" author Nigella Lawson uses a buttermilk marinade in her chicken recipe to tenderize the meat and infuse it with flavor and sweetness. It's then roasted to golden-brown perfection. Our recipe expands on Nigella's idea by adding salty olives and cubed potatoes to the roasting pan, which means the potatoes soak up flavor from the other ingredients as they cook. Using chicken thighs and drumsticks is also a time-saving trick.

Recipe: Nigella Lawson's Buttermilk Chicken

10. Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce

In the New Yorker, food writer Tamar Adler declares that Marcella Hazan's famous tomato sauce, made with just four ingredients, is a recipe that "can't be improved upon," because it's already perfect. Canned, crushed tomatoes simmer with butter and half an onion until they become a sumptuous sauce. Because it's already wonderful, we didn't play with the ingredients, but did make one change on the method: By making Hazan's sauce in an Instant Pot, it's ready in only 15 minutes (versus 45-60 minutes on the stovetop).

Recipe: Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce

11. Jamie Oliver's Steak Sarnie

Make a really delicious lunch for yourself and a friend with this recipe for a steak sarnie from Jamie Oliver. Caramelized onions, pan-fried steak, and watercress, all piled onto a soft ciabatta roll make for a simple sandwich that's ridiculously delicious. As a twist on Oliver's recipe, the steak has a little kick from a spicy seasoning blend of chili powder, paprika, and garlic. Oliver's preferred cut for his sarnies is skirt steak, which cooks up quickly and is fairly inexpensive. Win, win.

Recipe: Jamie Oliver's Steak Sarnie

12. Wolfgang Puck's Smoked Salmon Pizza

Here's a creative take on pizza from Spago founder Wolfgang Puck. This dish is perfect for a casual meal or brunch gathering, and works nicely as a party appetizer. Form a round from homemade or premade pizza dough and bake until puffed and browned. The cooled crust is topped with smoked salmon, sour cream, lemon zest, and diced scallions — the whole thing takes 15 minutes from start to finish. To make this an appetizer, bake it as a long rectangle and slice into thin servings.

Recipe: Wolfgang Puck's Smoked Salmon Pizza

13. Julia Child's Coq Au Vin

You can't talk about celebrity chefs without mentioning the legendary Julia Child. Known as the first celebrity chef, her TV program "The French Chef" became a sensation across the country in the 1960s. One of the iconic French dishes she taught Americans to make is Coq Au Vin, a dish of chicken, bacon, and mushrooms braised in wine. We swapped out the traditional red wine for lighter white wine, and added new potatoes to make this recipe a one-pot meal. 

Recipe: Julia Child's Coq Au Vin

14. Gordon Ramsay's Risotto

Learn how to make creamy, restaurant-quality risotto just like a pro — the professional that is Chef Gordon Ramsay, to be precise. In an interview with the Toronto Star, Ramsay says it's crucial to add stock and cook risotto very slowly so that the rice has time to absorb the liquid. The final texture should be thick, creamy, and like "lava." Our take on Ramsay's risotto reduces the amount of butter and cheese, but amps up the flavor with a splash of red wine. 

Recipe: Gordon Ramsay's Risotto

15. Chef Jernard Wells' New Soul Kitchen Lobster Mac & Cheese

In each new episode of his Cleo TV show "New Soul Kitchen Remix," Chef Jernard Wells eagerly shares ideas for flavor-packed meals that are ready in 30 minutes or less. He shared one of those recipes exclusively with Mashed: Creamy Lobster Mac And Cheese. It combines a savory cheese sauce made from cheddar and smoked paprika with perfectly-cooked lobster tail meat. What a treat for dinner tonight!  

Recipe: Chef Jernard Wells' New Soul Kitchen Lobster Mac & Cheese

16. Bobby Flay's Tuna Steak

Want a chance to play "Beat Bobby Flay" at home? Make this recipe for Flay's tuna steak that has our own delicious twist. Instead of serving the thinly sliced tuna steaks with caramelized onions, which add a lot of cook time to the recipe, this adaptation pairs the fish with a red onion and diced mango salsa. Parsley and mint add lots of freshness and color, and red pepper flakes bring a little heat. Now you can pull off this incredible dish on any busy weeknight.

Recipe: Bobby Flay's Tuna Steak

17. Alton Brown's Good Eats Roast Turkey

"Good Eats" host Alton Brown tells NPR that brining a turkey before roasting it is key to giving the meat lots of juiciness and flavor, and says either a wet or dry brine will work. We've gone the dry brine route with Brown's turkey recipe: It's less messy than submerging a huge bird in liquid and more manageable for small kitchens. This turkey is beautifully seasoned with allspice, pepper, ginger, and brown sugar, and the cavity is filled with flavorful apples and onions.  

Recipe: Alton Brown's Good Eats Roast Turkey

18. Giada's Lasagna

After seeing the breathtaking scenery and mouthwatering food on "Giada In Italy," it's understandable if you want to make some of Giada De Laurentiis' Italian recipes — like her classic lasagna with beef, spinach, and a rich bechamel sauce. Make your favorite tomato sauce from scratch, or to save time use a good jarred sauce like we do. Crumbled sausage added to the layers gives even more flavor to this dish that's special enough to make for company, yet easy enough to have for dinner.

Recipe: Giada's Lasagna

19. Jeff Mauro's Chicken Marsala

Did you know that Jeff Mauro from Food Network's "The Kitchen" is a Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef? That's probably where he learned how to make a perfect Chicken Marsala, spotlighting thin, pan-fried pieces of chicken in a mushroom-wine sauce. Recipe developer Kristen Carli turns Mauro's dish into a more filling meal by adding egg noodles and melted mozzarella to make a family-size casserole. The recipe makes eight generous servings and comes together in just under an hour.

Recipe: Jeff Mauro's Chicken Marsala

20. Charity Morgan's Vegan Strawberry-Orange Shortcake

Author and private chef Charity Morgan gives the world her flavor-packed take on vegan food in her 2022 cookbook "Unbelievably Vegan," with plant-based dishes inspired by her Creole and Puerto Rican roots. Morgan gave Mashed an exclusive glimpse at one of the recipes from her cookbook: A decadent strawberry-orange shortcake. The fluffy biscuits are made with plant-based butter and milk, and coconut milk makes a beautiful whipped cream flavored with orange liqueur. Sandwiched between are juicy, macerated strawberries — plus other berries, if you'd like.

Recipe: Charity Morgan's Vegan Strawberry-Orange Shortcake

21. Ina Garten's Chicken Chili

Barefoot Contessa was the name of Ina Garten's East Hampton store and first cookbook, and it has become her own alias as well. Garten is known for simple dishes with lots of flavor that folks can't wait to dig into — like this rich chicken chili. It's made with onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, and shredded roast chicken. Our version trades the spiciness for smoky paprika, and skips Ina's basil in favor of fresh cilantro. The recipe makes enough chili to serve six.

Recipe: Ina Garten's Chicken Chili

22. Gordon Ramsay's Fish And Chips

Gordon Ramsay has many Michelin stars to his name, but he still loves a good "chippy." He feels so strongly about the British comfort food classic that he even has several locations of his Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips restaurants open in the U.S. We added a little extra crunch to his fried fish recipe by coating cod filets with a crushed cornflake mixture. Our recipe pairs the fish with hearty waffle fries and a side of mushy peas. 

Recipe: Gordon Ramsay's Fish And Chips

23. Scott Conant's Bolognese With Parmigiano-Reggiano Fonduta

Chef, author, "Chopped" judge, and award-winning restaurateur Scott Conant is world-renowned for his sumptuous Italian dishes — like this rich pasta Bolognese recipe, which appears in his cookbook "Peace, Love, and Pasta." In an exclusive interview with Mashed, Conant says his recipes are packed with "big, assertive flavors and little twists that are chefy and fun." You'll learn how to make this dish with authentic ingredients like San Marzano tomatoes, tagliatelle pasta, and a blend of three ground meats.

Recipe: Scott Conant's Bolognese With Parmigiano-Reggiano Fonduta

24. Bobby Flay's Cole Slaw

"Beat Bobby Flay" namesake chef Bobby Flay knows plenty about grilling up mouthwatering burgers and steaks, but he also knows that folks want those tasty sides, too. Flay has a recipe for a classic cole slaw perfect for summer barbecues or sandwiches like pulled pork and Reubens. We think the chef will appreciate our spicy twist on this creamy slaw: A dash of Sriracha hot sauce adds color and heat to the salad, and pineapple juice lends a little sweetness. The recipe takes only 15 minutes to make.

Recipe: Bobby Flay's Cole Slaw

25. Giada's Tiramisu

Giada De Laurentiis makes her tiramisu in the traditional Italian way: Ladyfinger sponges soaked in coffee and rum layered with sweetened mascarpone cheese topped with shaved chocolate. It's an elegant and rich dessert that's easy to make. The only hard part is waiting for the dessert to chill before you slice and serve it. Recipe developer Jamie Monkkonen adds color and sweetness to Giada's tiramisu with layers of sliced strawberries. And by adding vanilla to the mascarpone, in combination with the chocolate and strawberry, the dessert has a very Neapolitan feel!

Recipe: Giada's Tiramisu

26. Gordon Ramsay's Beef Wellington

Wondering if chef Gordon Ramsay feels strongly about beef Wellington? "It's one of my all-time, favourite main courses and it would definitely be on my last supper menu," he declares on the Gordon Ramsay Restaurants website. If you haven't yet tried this dish, here's your chance to impress yourself and all your guests by making individual portions of Ramsay's beef Wellington recipe. It consists of sirloin steaks and mushroom duxelles baked in puff pastry and served with a seasoned red wine sauce.

Recipe: Gordon Ramsay's Beef Wellington

27. Chef Richard Sandoval's Flor De Muertos Margarita

Chef Richard Sandoval has won multiple awards for the innovative Latin American cuisine in his more than 30 international restaurants. In his recipe shared exclusively with Mashed, Chef Sandoval's margarita features flavors and colors honoring Día de los Muertos: the annual Day of the Dead celebration. The drink glows with passionfruit puree blended with Patrón tequila and agave nectar. Marigold blooms are a must for this drink, as they're the traditional flower used on Día de los Muertos ofrendas, or altars.

Recipe: Chef Richard Sandoval's Flor De Muertos Margarita

28. Ina Garten's Lobster Cobb Salad

When you need a special yet not too fussy dish for lunch or brunch entertaining, this salad from Ina Garten is a wonderful choice. A run-of-the-mill Cobb salad gets a major upgrade thanks to tender, buttery chunks of lobster, tossed with arugula, bacon, and cherry tomatoes and slathered in a miso-honey dressing. The Barefoot Contessa prefers to cook her own lobster meat for salads like these, but you can buy precooked lobster from a trusted seafood store or specialty shop. 

Recipe: Ina Garten's Lobster Cobb Salad

29. Chef Nyesha Arrington's Chocolate Cranberry Ganache Tart

Gordon Ramsay recently announced on Instagram that Chef Nyesha Arrington will once again join him for the 2023 season of "Next Level Chef." She'll lead a team of cooks from varied backgrounds and skills in the competition, presumably drawing from her creative approach to produce "food that hugs the soul." Her chocolate cranberry tart is a delicious example of this: It's simple to make, rich, and has bursts of flavor from cranberries and pomegranate seeds.

Recipe: Chef Nyesha Arrington's Chocolate Cranberry Ganache Tart

30. Gordon Ramsay's Hollandaise Sauce

Hollandaise sauce is one of the five "mother sauces" in French cuisine, sauces that, once learned, form the base for endless creative variations. When it comes to perfecting the technique for hollandaise, who better to learn from than chef Gordon Ramsay? His recipe is a careful emulsion of egg yolks, vinegar, lemon juice, tarragon, and butter. Our recipe blends the finished sauce with avocado for an extra creamy and rich hollandaise. The avocado also helps prevent the emulsion from breaking.

Recipe: Gordon Ramsay's Hollandaise Sauce

31. Bobby Flay's Salisbury Steak

Salisbury steak is a humble dish often found at buffets and small-town diner menus, but Food Network's Bobby Flay elevates it into a flavorful meal that family and friends will love. Fresh garlic and Parmigianno-Reggiano cheese are folded into the ground beef mixture, and the sauce is rich with cremini mushrooms and sliced onions. In our recipe, the Salisbury steaks are shaped into meatballs which cook up quickly. Serve the meatballs and sauce over tender egg noodles or mashed potatoes. 

Recipe: Bobby Flay's Salisbury Steak

32. Guy Fieri's Apple Pie Hot Dog

Although it seems like something from "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," this recipe was actually created by Guy Fieri himself as an "all-American food" in partnership with Chevrolet. Recipe developer Jessica Morone puts a cool twist on it: Instead of a whole hot dog inside a pie pocket, you get mini lattice-topped pies with apple, bacon jam, and chopped hot dog all neatly packed inside. The sweet-savory treats are easy to pack up and take on a picnic or to the next little league game.

Recipe: Guy Fieri's Apple Pie Hot Dog

33. Rachael Ray's Macaroni And Cheese

Rachael Ray has a great recipe for what is perhaps the king of all comfort foods: Mac n' cheese. If you've only made the boxed stuff, give homemade a try. It's not difficult, and you'll learn some great techniques like making a roux and turning it into a béchamel sauce. Ray's tips for making mac n' cheese include warming up the milk before adding it to the pot, then cooking the sauce until it's just thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

Recipe: Rachael Ray's Macaroni And Cheese

34. Jamie Oliver's Chicken In Milk

"The Naked Chef" Jamie Oliver makes a simple roast chicken incredibly tender and moist by roasting the whole bird in a bath of milk, along with aromatics like garlic, cinnamon, and thyme. Grapefruit juice is our twist on Oliver's recipe, an unexpected ingredient that not only helps tenderize the meat but creates texture in the milk sauce. The chicken takes only 15 minutes to prep and then one hour of hands-off roasting time. It's delicious served with mashed potatoes. 

Recipe: Jamie Oliver's Chicken In Milk

35. Gordon Ramsay's Donut

We're used to seeing chef Gordon Ramsay fussing and screaming over high-end dishes in fine dining restaurants, but he also loves homemade sweet treats, like these filled donuts. Ramsay's recipe is a yeasted dough that gets two rising times, which ensures that the final product is light and pillowy. We add rich Nutella to the centers of these donuts, as well as a coating of ground hazelnuts and chocolate malt powder. The delicious donuts are well worth the wait, and make a fun weekend or vacation project.

Recipe: Gordon Ramsay's Donut

36. Giada's Bruschetta With A Twist

Giada De Laurentiis tweeted this advice for novice cooks: "Whenever anyone asks me the first recipe someone should learn, my answer is always bruschetta. There's very little cooking involved!" Normally a savory appetizer, our take on Giada's bruschetta is a sweet version made with mascarpone cheese and sliced strawberries. With a balsamic vinegar reduction and strips of fresh basil, this recipe is full of fresh flavors and is perfect for brunch or an early evening cocktail hour.

Recipe: Giada's Bruschetta With A Twist

37. Gordon Ramsay's Burger

Gordon Ramsay knows how to turn an ordinary burger into something exceptional, and he proves it nightly at his Gordon Ramsay Burger restaurants in Chicago and Las Vegas. You can use some of his ingenious tricks to elevate your own burgers at home: Brush them with olive oil before grilling to give them a crispy, browned exterior, and bast the finished burgers in melted butter for extra decadence. Our version of Ramsay's burger uses easy-to-find ground beef and fills the centers with gooey, melty Monterey Jack cheese. 

Recipe: Gordon Ramsay's Burger

38. Chef Mattia Agazzi's Risotto Camouflaged As Pizza

Mattia Agazzi is the head chef behind the Michelin star-winning cuisine at Gucci Osteria in Beverly Hills. The menu includes inventive dishes with funky names like Charley Marley, a dessert of chocolate, hazelnut, and wild rice. Chef Agazzi shared one of his recipes exclusively with Mashed. Impress your friends by trying it at home. Risotto Camouflaged As Pizza layers tomato-flavored risotto with basil cream, burrata cheese, caper powder, and dehydrated tomatoes. If you like to get creative in the kitchen, this recipe is for you.

Recipe: Chef Mattia Agazzi's Risotto Camouflaged As Pizza

39. Bobby Flay's Shrimp And Grits

Booby Flay loves dishes that are packed with flavor, no matter what the cuisine. His shrimp and grits recipe is loaded with Cheddar cheese and a half pound of bacon, ingredients that bring lots of flavor but also lots of fat, which makes for a very heavy dish. Our take on Flay's recipe lightens things up by replacing these ingredients with caramelized onions and grated Parmesan. The grits are still delicious and best of all, the flavor of the tender shrimp really gets to shine. 

Recipe: Bobby Flay's Shrimp And Grits

40. Alex Guarnaschelli's Chicken Stir Fry With Spicy Peanut Sauce

"Iron Chef" Alex Guarnaschelli's spicy, savory peanut chicken stir fry recipe isn't just full of flavor, it also has added texture from sliced bell peppers, radishes, and peas. Because her original recipe takes around 40 minutes on the stovetop, we adapted it for the Instant Pot. This cuts the time down to just 15 minutes — that's perfect for dinner any night of the week. Coconut milk in the sauce gives this dish a curry-like flavor and creaminess.

Recipe: Alex Guarnaschelli's Chicken Stir Fry With Spicy Peanut Sauce

41. Gordon Ramsay's Tuna Tartare

One of chef Gordon Ramsay's most important lessons on "Kitchen Nightmares" was that of well-prepared food made with the freshest ingredients (via Medium). His recipe for tuna tartare is a great example of this mantra: Tuna is the star here, and the rest of the ingredients are there to enhance and heighten the flavor experience. Purchase the best-quality sushi-grade tuna you can find for this dish. The sauce includes fresh mango, ginger root, soy sauce, and chili-garlic sauce.

Recipe: Gordon Ramsay's Tuna Tartare

42. Rachel Ray's Chicken Burger

Make our twist on Rachael Ray's chicken burger recipe for your next cookout or family dinner. The burgers are nice and light thanks to ground chicken, but they're also packed with flavor in both the patties and the sauce. Mix the ground meat with ingredients like oregano, lemon zest, and Parmesan cheese. Once grilled, the burgers are topped with a creamy, homemade tzatziki sauce and veggies of your choice like tomatoes and lettuce. The recipe makes four servings. 

Recipe: Rachael Ray's Chicken Burger

43. Giada's Egg Casserole

This recipe turns Giada De Laurentiis' easy and comforting egg casserole into mini quiches that are perfect bite-sized treats for busy mornings or brunch potlucks. With eggs, goat cheese, and turkey sausage, it packs lots of protein. Because it's Giada's recipe, it boasts classic Italian flavors as well, specifically sun-dried tomatoes, fresh spinach, and fresh basil. Baked in a regular or mini muffin pan, the egg bites are ready in as little as 15 minutes.

Recipe: Giada's Egg Casserole

44. Bobby Flay's Chili

Here's your chance to make a homemade chili that's every bit as spicy and flavorful as Bobby Flay's. The ingredient list may look long at first glance, but many of these are items you'll be able to keep on hand for other recipes. These are ingredients that Flay himself stocks in his pantry, like chipotle peppers and chili powders, to build flavor into every dish. We swapped out the meat in the original recipe for two kinds of beans, for a vegetarian chili that even more folks can enjoy. 

Recipe: Bobby Flay's Chili

45. Ina Garten's Beef Tenderloin

"Barefoot Contessa" Ina Garten prepares her beef tenderloin very simply (and deliciously!) with just salt and pepper. We think she'd approve of this little twist that adds beautiful herbal and citrus notes to the roast. The beef filet is marinated in a blend of sweet (not dry) vermouth, brown sugar, thyme, and bay leaves. After roasting, it's served with vibrant orange slices and rosemary sprigs. Garten's tenderloin is simple to prepare and festive enough to make for a dinner party.

Recipe: Ina Garten's Beef Tenderloin

46. Gordon Ramsay's Scallops

Gordon Ramsay has two crucial steps to making perfect scallops. First, the scallops should go into a "piping hot" pan (via YouTube). The second step involves how you place them in the pan. "The first scallop goes in at 12 'clock; then 1 o'clock, 2 o'clock, and so on." Placing the scallops this way helps ensure even, quick cooking on both sides. In this recipe, we serve these scallops alongside a gorgeous salad of Boston lettuce, snow peas, and radishes. 

Recipe: Gordon Ramsay's Scallops

47. Chef Rasheed Philips' Tomahawk Steak

On Netflix's "American Barbecue Showdown," Rasheed Phillips humbly referred to himself as "a guy that just manages not to burn the food." He did more than just that though, making it to the finals and coming in as runner-up in the competition. Try some of Phillips' succulent barbecue at home with this recipe he shared exclusively with Mashed for a grilled tomahawk steak. The steak is covered with a mustard-spice rub coating. Once it's grilled, serve it with a butter and blue cheese compound butter.

Recipe: Chef Rasheed Philips' Tomahawk Steak

48. Bobby Flay's Shrimp And Roasted Garlic Tamale

In this YouTube video, chef Bobby Flay calls his shrimp and roasted garlic tamales a "signature dish" at his first restaurant, Mesa Grill. The Mesa Grill locations are now sadly closed, but you can still recreate Flay's tamales at home. Make an easy corn masa with diced green chilies to fill softened corn husks, then cook the tied tamales in an Instant Pot. While they cook, make Flay's delectable garlic cream sauce, which is spooned over the sautéed shrimp and steamed tamales. 

Recipe: Bobby Flay's Shrimp And Roasted Garlic Tamale

49. Gordon Ramsay's Scrambled Eggs

Although TikTok likes to get after Gordon Ramsay about the way he makes scrambled eggs, the fact is that the chef knows what he's talking about. Ramsay's technique of moving the pan off and on the heat ensures that the eggs cook very gently, resulting in scrambled eggs that are incredibly creamy and soft. No overcooked, tough curds here. Butter and crème fraiche makes the eggs extra velvety, and our addition of paprika and sliced chilis give them a spicy kick. 

Recipe: Gordon Ramsay's Scrambled Eggs

50. Ina Garten's Lasagna

Make dinner for your family, friends, or guests the Ina Garten way, with a big pan of inviting lasagna that everyone will be excited to dig into. This lasagna is made with turkey sausage, so it's lighter than those made with ground beef or pork sausage. And don't be intimidated by the steps: It's easy to cook the fillings, then you simply layer everything in a pan and bake. Our recipe replaces lasagna noodles with large cheese ravioli for extra cheesiness.

Recipe: Ina Garten's Lasagna

51. Giada's Chicken Piccata With A Twist

Made with capers, lemon juice, and butter, chicken piccata is a classic Italian dish. So naturally, Giada De Laurentiis has a version of this recipe in her repertoire. We decided to put a twist on Giada's piccata recipe and paired the flavors of lemon and briny capers with tilapia instead of chicken. The light fish filets are exquisite prepared piccata-style, and they cook up just as fast. You can dredge the tilapia in flour before cooking or omit the coating for a gluten-free dish.

Recipe: Giada's Chicken Piccata With A Twist

52. Bobby Flay's Prime Rib

Bobby Flay shares on Food Network that he loves to make prime rib for "holiday celebrations," but this sumptuous roast would also be wonderful for a Sunday meal or a dinner party. Flay inserts garlic cloves into slits all over the prime rib to infuse it with flavor, and we add in sprigs of rosemary, too. Coat the outside with a generous layer of salt and pepper before putting it in the oven. Make the pan sauce with drippings, red wine, shallots, and onions. 

Recipe: Bobby Flay's Prime Rib

53. Gordon Ramsay's Salmon

Follow these tips from "Hell's Kitchen" chef Gordon Ramsay for a perfectly cooked salmon filet dripping with flavor from herbs and a little spice. On YouTube, Ramsay demonstrates how to carefully score the salmon to promote even cooking, and explains why it's important to begin cooking it skin side down. While the chef likes to add Cajun seasoning blend to his fish, we use just a little cayenne pepper for the heat and add lemon juice for bright acidity. Serve your salmon with sautéed veggies or a creamy risotto.

Recipe: Gordon Ramsay's Salmon

54. Chef Ludo Lefebvre's Steak Au Poivre

Author and restaurateur chef Ludo Lefebvre was named one of the "World's 50 Greatest Chefs" by travel site Relais & Chateaux. He's trained with French culinary masters and has worked with greats like Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay. During an exclusive interview with Mashed, Chef Lefebvre shared his recipe for steak au poivre, which pairs perfectly seared filet mignon with a creamy sauce of Cognac and peppercorns. Homemade shoestring French fries seem almost too casual for this steak, but actually are delicious dipped into that peppery sauce. 

Recipe: Chef Ludo Lefebvre's Steak Au Poivre

55. Sara Hauman's Mussels En Escabeche

Fans of "Top Chef" will remember Chef Sara Hauman from Season 18, who despite being eliminated on the "Restaurant Wars" episode, did impress judges and fellow chefs throughout the competition. Hauman currently owns her own company called The Tiny Fish, selling seafood like the mussels she uses in this recipe shared in an interview with Mashed. The chef gently steams mussels in wine, then marinates them in a spicy sauce of peppercorns, bacon fat, and cumin seeds. They make an excellent tapas course.

Recipe: Sara Hauman's Mussels En Escabeche

56. Tom Colicchio's Braised Short Ribs

"Top Chef" judge and restaurateur Tom Colicchio wants you to treat yourself to some of the most succulent, fall-apart-tender short ribs you've ever tasted. And you don't need to go to a restaurant: You can make these at home, with enough servings to feed six. Marinate the short ribs overnight in red wine and garlic; the next day braise the meat slowly in a Dutch oven until completely tender. The ribs are paired with roasted butternut squash and turnips. 

Recipe: Tom Colicchio's Braised Short Ribs

57. Rachel Ray's Meatloaf

Rachael Ray makes a delicious, classic meatloaf complete with a ketchup-glazed top that is sure to be a hit with everyone in your house. We found a way to zhuzh up this loaf of meat with a couple of easy changes that you'll love. Instead of using breadcrumbs in the meat mixture to help bind everything together, we use crushed-up potato chips which adds a little extra salt, too. Next, a dash of curry powder in the ketchup gives the dish a uniquely savory and spicy note.

58. Giada's Chicken Cacciatore

According to Delighted Cooking, chicken cacciatore is an Italian stew that was once mostly made by hunters and travelers but is now made in homes and restaurants everywhere. Giada De Laurentiis makes her cacciatore with onions, mushrooms, and bell peppers in a sauce of chicken stock and wine. Though De Laurentiis likes her cacciatore made with bone-in chicken, we like quick-cooking chicken breast for a meal that can be prepared any busy weeknight.

59. Bobby Flay's Grilled Halibut

Make Bobby Flay's simple and flavorful grilled halibut to enjoy as a simple entrée with a side of sautéed vegetables, or slice it up and make fish tacos. We traded Flay's flavorings of lemon and rosemary for the equally delicious combination of orange and tarragon. When grilling the halibut, Flay explains in a Facebook video that the key to preventing it from sticking is to simply be patient: Give the fish several minutes to sear before trying to flip it. It should release cleanly from the grill grates.

60. Gordon Ramsay's Shepherd's Pie

One of the best comfort foods ever just happens to be a favorite of chef Gordon Ramsay, too. Shepherd's pie has a layer of seasoned meat baked under a crust of mashed potatoes. A true shepherd's pie is made with ground lamb; when made with ground beef, it's technically a cottage pie. Our twist on Ramsay's recipe is to make this dish with ground venison — which perhaps makes it a woodland pie? Whatever you call it, it's rich, hearty, and a great choice to feed a crowd.
