Our Favorite Chefs

Today's celebrity chefs have TV shows, magazines, cookbooks, and more -- all of them helping Americans to cook better and expand their culinary adventures. Better Homes and Gardens has gathered some chefs we love, as well as their top recipes, cooking tips, and demonstrations. If grilling is your passion, you'll find inspiration from grilling guru Jamie Purviance. He reinterprets the classic hot dog in four ways, then pairs it with affordable craft beers -- a perfect meal at any time of the year. We have more grilling advice, too, from cookbook author Elizabeth Karmel; she shares her top ways to give chicken, pork, and beef better flavor with spicy sauces and marinades. Scott Peacock has gained fame with his American Classics series, chock-full of old-school dishes -- such as chicken and dumplings and pot roast -- reinvented for today's tastes. Join Scott on his journey as he cooks his way through dozens of essential American dishes.
