The 8 Sexiest Men on TV Cooking Shows

Posted By on Wed, Apr 6, 2011 at 3:02 PM

Producers of food TV don't just care if a guy can cook ― most stars of cooking shows these days have to be hot enough to make viewers' plasmas sweat. Behold, SFoodie's countdown of the eight sexiest male chefs currently taking up space on our DVRs, dudes with the power to sear our tenderloins with little more than a long, slow look into the camera. (Note to straight men and queer or bicurious women: Relax ― we'll be bringing you their estrogen-pumped counterparts in a future post.)

8. Ludo Lefebvre

He has tattoos, a hot French accent, and millions of men and women dying to taste his pop-up. Chef Ludo is the complete package, and he has a girl ― top lawyer, Apprentice contestant, and Playmate ― who'd make any straight guy green with envy. This L.A. power couple accept reservations on Twitter, and are taking pop-up phenomenon LudoBites around the country for a show called Ludo Bites America, debuting on the Sundance Channel this summer.

7. Jamie Oliver

Forever known as the Naked Chef, Oliver hasn't ever actually let himself be filmed naked (far as we know). Bummer. Oliver's a fine lad with a heart of gold, cute despite lacking any hint of a tan. His passion for fighting childhood obesity and bureaucratic school boards on Food Revolution makes us proud, though, and he'll always have that special boyish charm despite being the father of four. After all, his kids have names even unicorns napping under rainbows couldn't have dreamed up: Poppy Honey Rosie, Daisy Boo Pamela, Petal Blossom Rainbow, and Buddy Bear Maurice. Aww.

6. Rocco DiSpirito

DiSpirito was the star of one of the first food reality TV shows, The Restaurant. He was a hunk and a half, but what we remember most was wanting to try his mother's meatballs, the must-have dish at every table on the series. Boy, did they look good. Fast-forward a few years and it turns out something was looking even better: columnist Whitney Casey revealed that DiSpirito has the perfect penis ― "like a Viagra version of the statue of David," Casey told Howard Stern. Boy, does that sound good.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
