When big personalities enter the kitchen, there’s bound to be some ruffled feathers

Among others, Gordon Ramsay has feuded with Marcus Samuelsson, Mario Batali, Eric Ripert, Jacques Pepin, and José Andrés.

Of course, some celebrity chefs and food personalities are more likely to rub others the wrong way than others. Anthony Bourdain, Rachael Ray, Guy Fieri, Gordon Ramsay, and Martha Stewart have all been engaged in several spats with their contemporaries over everything from culinary prowess to how they behave themselves on their televised kitchens to how much time they have (or have not) spent in jail.

Though you would think that these adults would be able to hold their tongues when it comes to their opinions of others who they may or may not actually know, but the opposite has actually been proven to be true. The culinary world is filled with drama, and these insane chef feuds prove just that.


9 Crazy Cocktail Concoctions

When a BLT sandwich just won't do, head to the sultry speakeasy PX in Alexandria, Virginia. Here, Bar Chef Todd Thrasher serves up a meaty mix of bacon-infused vodka, tomato water and ice cubes made from lettuce water in a glass rimmed with bacon-salt. Another option for bacon goodness: Double Down (in Las Vegas and New York City), the self-proclaimed birthplace of the bacon martini. Photo courtesy of PX Lounge.

It's amazing what a little green paste can do for your sinuses. If you're seeking a charge of horseradish, look no further than Absolut Vodka's Wasabi Martini.

Chocolate Truffle Martini

It doesn't get any more decadent&mdashor eccentric&mdashthan this drink from the Donovan Bar at Brown's Hotel in London. For $120, you'll get a heady combination of black Alba truffle&ndashinfused vodka and chocolate liqueur, garnished with paper-thin truffle slices. Sip slowly, if only for your wallet's sake.

Keith McNally's Nolita-based bar Pravda in New York City isn't short on trendiness&mdashor intense flavor when it comes to the Russian-themed menu. This martini looks demure but packs a decisive punch, combining horseradish vodka with a pickled quail egg. Photo courtesy of Pravda.

If you can't track down this nostalgic '70s candy, stumble over to KEYBAR in New York City. Among the bar's handful of signature shots, you'll find the Rolo, a super-sweet mix of the chocolate-caramel candy, vodka and other "secret" adults-only ingredients! Photo courtesy of KEYBAR.

Passion Pop Rocks Martini

We know it's a myth that pairing pop rocks with soda will make your stomach burst&mdashbut they'll definitely do something when mixed with vodka!
