What Celebrity Chef Shares Your Zodiac Sign?
Whether you're a saucy Scorpio like Gordon or an adventurous Aquarius like Ina, we've rounded up 12 celebrity chef zodiac signs below. Who's your culinary soulmate?
Aries: Mary Berry
In case you need proof that Mary Berry is a textbook Aries risk-taker, consider this: She bakes pies without bottom crusts (it’s a thing apparently!). But if you aren’t ready for adventurous eats a la the Great British Bake Off star, here are 50 of our best pie recipes to make instead.
Taurus: James Beard
When you think Taurus, you likely think tradition. And when you think tradition as it pertains to food, you likely think James Beard. Because while he was an incredible chef, he also left behind the legacy of the prestigious James Beard Award, which are considered the Oscars of the culinary world. That’s why his work made our list of the top cookbooks from every decade.
Gemini: Jamie Oliver
More is more in the minds of a Gemini. That certainly rings true for The Naked Chef, who has both cheeky personality and cooking talent in spades. Feeling inspired by Jamie’s healthy eating approach? Pack one of these 25 better-for-you meals for your lunch tomorrow.
Cancer: Wolfgang Puck
Cozy + comforting = a Cancer’s ideal space. It’s also how you could describe any of Wolfgang’s 50+ restaurants. From the super chic to the more laidback (although still very luxe), the king of the kitchen knows how to create an “it” eatery that still manages to feel like home.

Leo: Giada De Laurentiis
Leos are creative, bold and warm-hearted—just like the queen of Italian cooking herself. She knows that the way to someone’s heart truly is through food, preferably a big bowl of bolognese. The next time you want to dish up something delicious for your friends and family, check out Giada’s four secrets to perfect pasta.
Virgo: Michael Symon
Describe Michael Symon (or any Virgo, really) in three words and you’d likely say busy, busy… oh and busy. Like his sign suggests, Michael is incredibly hardworking, with his long list of titles including chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, host, husband and more. Check out his tips for how to make beer can chicken.
Libra: Emeril Lagasse
As the sign of the scales, Libras like Emeril understand the importance of balance—even in the kitchen. His “New New Orleans” style of cooking is part down-home cooking and part upscale gourmet (and all delicious!). For an Emeril-approved meal, cook up one of these 18 Cajun creations.
Scorpio: Gordon Ramsay
Fierce, short-tempered and prone to the occasional emotional outburst, the Hell’s Kitchen chef is a real-life scorpion, aka the Scorpio’s symbol. Besides lazy sous-chefs, what else really makes him angry? These three food trends that Gordon wishes would bloody go away.
Sagittarius: Bobby Flay
It’s only fitting that Bobby Flay is a fire sign. The grilling guru is so familiar with flames that he’s had six TV shows and seven books dedicated to bettering your barbecue. If you’re itching to fire up your own grill, avoid these eight common burger-making mistakes.
Capricorn: Ree Drummond
Pioneer Woman? More like independent woman. Just like a true Capricorn, Ree is a pro at running the show, from creating ranch-inspired recipes for her blog to homeschooling her four kids. One Taste of Home editor cooked like the famous Food Network star for a week—here’s what she learned.
Aquarius: Ina Garten
Adventure is basically an Aquarius’ middle name. And it might as well be Ina Garten’s, too. Before becoming the Barefoot Contessa, Ina worked as a budget analyst in the White House, ran a specialty store in the Hamptons and even got her pilot’s license. Here are 16 of her favorite foods to cook (and eat!).
Pisces: Buddy Valastro
Buddy’s creative confections are what (Pisces) dreams are made of. Adding a dash of whimsy to his out-of-the-box ideas, the Cake Boss has been dominating the dessert scene since 2009 when he opened Carlo’s Bakeshop. Take a page out of his recipe book with one of these 55 crave-worthy cakes.
