The holidays are upon us and we are bombarded with cooking shows, I love it. America has become obsessed with food and with celebrity chefs.

USdirect.com took a national survey to find out which chef is the favorite in each state.

Ex-con and cooking show O.G. Martha Stewart is Maine's top celebrity chef.

Is it Martha's connection to Maine? She has owned her Skylands estate in Seal Harbor for many years and definitely plays up her part-time Mainer status as part of her brand.
