Food and attractive women. Has there ever been a better pairing of man's favorite things? We think not, which is why food television—along with its vast army of hot hosts—is second only to sports television in appeal. Take a look through this gallery of television's hottest food personalities and you'll be tuning into the Food Network everyday too.
Padma Lakshmi Top Chef host, cookbook author, model and the reigning queen of hot television food personalities. Avert your eyes.
Giada De Laurentiis She’s an accomplished chef, writer and television host. Honestly, though, this chick could make toast and we’d praise it as a culinary achievement.
Nigela Lawson Lawson has been called the “queen of food porn” for her flirtatious on-camera personality and style of presentation. Wear it proud, girl.
Sara La Fountain La Fountain falls somewhere between high fashion model and television chef. Works for us.
Marcela Valladolid Valladolid is best known for her Food Network show Mexican Made Easy. As if we needed another reason to love Mexican food.
Ingrid Hoffman She and Sofia Vergara represent two of Colombia’s five all-time greatest exports.
Claire Robinson We’d Stepford wife this chick so fast.
Catherine McCord A former supermodel, McCord now spends her time food-blogging and hosting the occasional television show.
Rachael Ray Yeah, this happened. The early 2000s were a weird time.
Aida Mollenkamp The host of Cooking Channel's FoodCrafters, Mollenkamp is also a blogger and a Cornell grad.
Nadia Giosia We like her based on the name of her TV show alone: Bitchin' Kitchen.
Cat Cora Because all great chefs buy their ingredients at what appears to be an am/pm.
Kelly Choi This is either extremely sexy or extremely messed up. Probably somewhere in-between.
Katie Lee Lee is best known as the former spouse of Billy Joel, but she also writes cookbooks and makes frequent appearances on food shows.
Holli Ugalde The winner of season seven of Hell’s Kitchen, Ugalde now splits her time between a position as chef at Florida’s B Ocean restaurant, and demonstrating the correct way to eat ribs.
