Doppelgangers: the game so nice we
played it twice. But there are so many distinctive-looking celebrity chefs out there (or, in some cases, cookpeople) that we couldn’t resist resurrecting the game. In fact, this game could double as the “Dream Cast For Every Chef Biopic, If They Were To Happen.” (Hollywood directors, take note.)

There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
Todd English = Joaquin Phoenix
It's not just the smouldering eyes and the intense brows, it's also that we think that both of their careers are, at this point in their lives, performance art.
Joe Bastianich = Pitbull
Graham Elliott for the suggestion of a last-minute judge replacement on Masterchef.
Rick Bayless = Rob Lowe as
Parks and Recreation's Chris Traeger
These two eternally upbeat men (look at those megawatt smiles!) would
lit-rally spend hours trying to out-yoga each other. And then they'd hug each other sweetly and compliment each others' smiling techniques.
Tyler Florence = Blake Shelton
Admit it, Tyler Florence is secretly a flannel kind of guy.
Brian Malarkey = A Ken Doll
Oh goodness, we can hardly tell them apart. Whatever shall we do? Maybe they are twins from the same mother, or cardboard box. Or maybe Malarkey's face is made of the same substance as that doll. So many possibilities, we're positively faint from the confusion.
Rocco DiSpirito = Patrick Bateman
We're not sure what it is, but we're constantly worried DiSpirito might be a little too obsessed with business card perfection.
Kristen Kish = The Author's Sister
Okay, maybe the person on the right is hardly a celebrity, but watching
Top Chef last season was an eerie, eerie experience for this author. Did you know that in German tradition, if one sees a doppelgänger of one's relatives, it is an omen predicting illness or danger? Oh no, not my sister!
