I’ll admit that I love the Iron Chef. Both the original, and the US version. Heck I even watched the specials hosted by William Shatner. So it should come as no shock that I think this story is pretty cool.
While frat guys have their secret handshakes and makeout parties, the modern-day chef has chosen a little more permanent insignia of their brotherhood: tattoos. This distinguishing feature pops up on plenty of chefs both nationally and locally, bringing a touch of rock-star flare to the back of the house. Tattoos — whether used as a means to cover up scar tissue from years of kitchen work or a means to pick up chicks – are as much a part of today’s chefs uniform as a toque or an apron.

The last time I was in Kansas City, I had dinner at a fantastic pizza place that had some great vegan pizzas. I can’t recall the name of it right now, but I’m sure someone in the comments section can enlighten me. If you do get a chance to hit up this pizza place, I highly recommend getting a pizza with mushrooms, garlic, and roasted potatoes. I’d drive down there again just to eat that pizza.
Any ModBlog readers chefs? Or just someone who likes to cook? Got any tips/recipes to share?
