Chefs Congress Features Semi-Nude Cooks


The Museum of the American Cocktail’s mixologist caricatures were pretty funny, but this is even better — by way of advertising the International Chefs Congress taking place at the Park Avenue Armory September 14 to 16, features two cutout dolls on the cover of the catalog of events, which include talks (moderated by Ted Allen) with Heston Blumenthal, Charlie Trotter, and Rick Moonen, as well as workshops with Masaharu Morimoto, Dan Barber, Anne Burrell, and others. We figure the chef on the left is modeled after Ilan Hall, but what about the female chef with the requisite dragonfish tat? And come on, guys, some faux-hawk varieties would’ve been nice! A Rotavap in honor of Wylie Dufresne and Sam Mason’s workshops? Maybe some heroin needles, in honor of Anthony Bourdain’s chat with Marco Pierre White? What else?
