“World’s Sexiest Chef” backs up foie!
Jean -Christophe Novelli, a man who won’t back down to those ignorant, violent, harassing, activists that brutally vandalized his restaurant because of foie.
Now I had no idea who this chef was so I did a bit of research and this quick synapsis should clue you in to his celebrity status:
’99 New York Times Article titled “The Chef as Beefcake”:
“When Jean-Christophe Novelli flew to New York from London last month to promote the American edition of his titillatingly titled cookbook, ”Your Place or Mine” (Clarkson N. Potter, $35), his arrival was heralded by a barrage of smoldering head shots — forelock dangling, dark eyes burning — and news that the British magazine Harper’s & Queen had voted him the world’s fifth-sexiest man: ”Tall, dark and delicious,” it gushed. An article in the June issue of Food & Wine on ”Sex and the Single Chef” goes even further, likening chefs to groupie-plagued rock stars.”
