Dallas Chefs on Twitter: the Good, the Bad and the Exceptionally Weird

Social media is a beautiful thing. Sites like Twitter and Facebook allow us to read all about our high school classmates' stupid kids, yell at politicians about gun control and tweet creepy, 140-character love notes at celebrities we like. Thanks to cooking shows like Top Chef and Chopped, chefs are rapidly becoming part of the social media glitterati.

Dallas certainly has its share of nationally and locally famous chefs. Many of them eschew social media, probably because they're too busy foraging for weird ingredients or learning chemistry so that they can spherify foods. There are a few that really love their social media, and they're actually pretty good at it.

I'm not saying that you should actually follow all of these chefs on Twitter for a wealth of good food content. But you shouldn't miss out on the unintentional (and intentional) hilarity, quality food information, and other goodness on these nine timelines.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
