Who are the famous celebrity chefs you can engage for your cooking show in Malaysia? We have curated a comprehensive list of celebrity chefs here.

Who are the famous celebrity chefs you can engage for your cooking show in Malaysia? In this article, we have curated a comprehensive list of celebrity chefs based in Malaysia.

If you are looking to produce a food video for your brand, it makes sense to engage a celebrity chef be it for your video commercial or cooking show, if budget permits.

So how do we define celebrity chefs here? It is not just someone who is known for cooking but he or she has to be confident in front of the camera. 

Celebrity chefs are usually those who have hosted cooking shows on TV, or made their name via a cooking competition like MasterChef - those who are very knowledgeable in food and culinary.

While you can also consider working with cooking YouTubers in Malaysia, they lack the charisma (or face) of celebrity chefs especially if you need to feature them in your commercial or cooking show.
 
This is especially true if you intend to appoint someone as your brand ambassador, celebrity chefs should be your priority instead of YouTubers.

However, if your objective is content marketing, cooking YouTubers should be considered as they have more views and subscribers than most of the celebrity chefs here.
