Ted Allen (born Edward R. Allen on May 20, 1965 in Columbus, Ohio) is an American writer and television personality. He was the food and wine connoisseur on the American Bravo network's Emmy-winning television program Queer Eye. He now is host of two prime-time series on Food Network: Chopped, a culinary competition in which four chefs per episode attempt to cook their way through three courses to win a $10,000 prize, and Food Detectives, which uses scientific experiments to test myths about food. He is a frequent guest on television cooking shows and the author of magazine articles and books.

Allen was born in Columbus, Ohio, but grew up in Carmel, Indiana. His Southern-born mother instilled in him a love of food and cooking.

He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York, with long-time partner Barry Rice, a former professor at Columbia College Chicago.
