The Bear is back with a bevy of culinary cameos that will have you saying “yes, chef!” throughout the 10 new episodes.

The Emmy-winning FX series premiered its third season on June 26, which finds the show’s regular cast sharing screen time with heavyweights from the food world, as the aftermath of the Bear’s opening unfolds.

In the season’s first episode, “Tomorrow,” Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White) is having flashbacks to his past experiences working in fine dining establishments, which leads to appearances from Daniel’s Daniel Boulud and Noma’s René Redzepi. Another cameo-heavy episode, the finale, sees Chef Terry (Olivia Colman) host a who’s who of chefs at a closing dinner for her Chicago restaurant, Ever (a fictional version of a real restaurant in the Windy City).

And one A-list movie star even makes an appearance.

Read on to see every celebrity chef who appears on season 3 of The Bear.

In another flashback montage from “Tomorrow,” Carmy goes to Copenhagen to work for Redzepi’s world-renowned Noma, where he and the Danish chef share a look.

“We had so much fun welcoming you all into our space on a perfect summer weekend in Copenhagen and, among other things, teaching @jeremyallenwhitefinally how to properly cut a nice piece of squid,” the restaurant said on its official Instagram account.

Beran, who owns the French restaurant Pasjoli in Santa Monica, is also seen in the first episode, working with Carmy at Chef Terry’s Ever.

In 2023, White told Gold Derby that he visited Pasjoli for research on what it's really like working in a professional kitchen.

“I spent a lot of time as a fly on the wall, and I’d help them prep where you can’t really screw up anything too badly,” he told the outlet. “It was a pretty busy night and Chef Dave [Beran] pushed me onto the line.” White said he was told to “start cooking,” even though he was “so, so scared.”

James has owned the popular Los Angeles eatery Uncle Paulie’s Deli since 2017. Fittingly, he plays Chuckie, a character who arrives to help run the Bear’s sandwich window in episode 7, titled "Legacy."

The finale starts with a flashback of Carmy's time at Keller’s iconic California restaurant the French Laundry.

Keller shows Carmy how to remove the wishbone while preparing a roast chicken. He then shares, “I know people call me a chef, but our trade is cooking and that, to me, is such a profound profession, because we get to really be part of people’s lives in significant ways.”

The “funeral” dinner for Ever, attended by Carmy, Sydney (Ayo Edebiri) and Richie (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), draws its own long list of culinary stars.

Real-life chefs who appear at the meal include Grant Achtaz (Alinea),  Wylie Dufresne (wd~50, Stretch Pizza), Christina Tosi (Milk Bar), Malcolm Livingston II (Noma), Kevin Boehm (Boka Restaurant Group), Will Guidara (former co-owner of Eleven Madison Park), Anna Posey (Elske), Genie Kwon (Kasama) and Rosio Sanchez (former pastry chef at Noma).

The event at Ever also features an appearance from a very recognizable fictional chef.

When Carmy arrives, he sees a collage of photos showing various colleagues who’ve worked with Chef Terry. One is an image of Cooper in the 2015 movie Burnt. He played Adam Jones, a temperamental chef on a mission to receive his third Michelin star.

No word on whether we can expect a real cameo from the Maestro actor in season 4. He does have his own food truck after all.
