We live in the world of "egotarian cuisine," or, as Andrew Zimmern recently put it, "the age where no one is allowed to criticize the best chefs and restaurants in the world." Fair enough, we thought. Surely the best restaurants in the world can't be perfect, right? Right?
So, in order to give some really fair and balanced views of the world's best restaurants, we turned to the ever-reliable, ever-crazy customers unafraid to air their true opinions of a joint: Yelp. In a new series, we're digging through some of the most renowned restaurants' Yelp feedback to paint an accurate picture of what you're really getting for your dollar. As we suspected, Yelpers are hilariously jaded, bringing down the so-called best of the best.
While Richard Blais landed a sweet gig judging on this next Boston season of Top Chef, he landed yet another TV gig -- this time on the infamous Food Network. Could Blais, already the master of celebrity chefness (you've hit it big when you shill cat food, we guess?) give the Food Network a winning show?
Everyone loves looking at chef tattoos, even if there’s an overabundance of pork-related ink and permanent wrist-spoons. They’re visually stunning works of art, a mark that distinguishes its bearer as part of food culture, and a clear expression of the chef’s passion for their craft.
These are not chef tattoos.
Instead, these are the tattoos of groupies who, enamored with celebrity chefs, tattooed chefs’ faces onto their own skin permanently. We were appalled/inspired this morning when we saw Gordon Ramsay’s apprehension over a fan’s tattoo, and unfortunately, @Zoria_Nails isn’t the only one in this trend. Click if you dare. We double dare you.
