Kevin Gillespie

The star of Top Chef believes food is central to our faith. The Southerner endorses sensible food choices: "It’s not just about being fed; it’s about communing with people, it’s about respect for nature and spending time with your family and the people that you love."

Jeff Young

Popular Catholic chef Young maintains that "food can be a sign of God’s love and care for us.” Inspired by Scripture, from the feeding of the five thousand, to the Passover meal, he states: "Food brings us together. It is a sign of communion, and it is a delightful means of celebrating with joy."

Father Leo Patalinghug

Martial artist, breakdancer -- and a priest -- from Baltimore, the founder of the movement Grace before Meals wants to bring families together around the dinner table. He says, "God made himself known to us through food," and we should take the time to care for others with our own culinary efforts, no matter how limited they may be.

Mary Berry

The well-known judge in The Great British Bake Off, Berry said her faith was “tested” after the death of her son. Since then, "Little things simply do not bother me anymore," she admitted. "You have to count your blessings instead, and my life has been immensely blessed."

Delia Smith

A Catholic convert, Smith has penned many popular cook books with the family and God at the heart of them. Stating "My faith is my inner fire and inspires all I do," the chef has also written Christian books describing her journey to find God. "The more you search, the more you find."

Massimo Bottura

This Italian 3-star Michelin chef has been involved in many projects to help the homeless, inspired by the pope's call to help the poor. From serving the poor during the Rio Olympics, to being involved in the project Food for Soul, with a little help from the pontiff, the world's number one chef wants to feed those in need, aiming "to rebuild the dignity of the people."
