New Obama chef a 'total hottie' . . .
. . . says MenuPages blog editor Helen Rosner about former avec chef Sam Kass and former personal chef to the Obamas:
"He's also dedicated to sustainable and organic agriculture, as evidenced by his menus and philosophy at his private chef service, Inevitable Table. He grew up in Chicago, went to the University of Chicago, and, as evidenced by this picture, is a total hottie."
He'll be working under current White House chef Criseta Comerford.
UPDATE: Ummmm, Gawker just put their snarky spin on his appointment:
"Hah, the Obamas brought their own personal home chef with them to The White House. And oddly that bit of crazy elitism will please all the hippies.
Because Sam Kass—who will just be one of their personal cooks, with White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford keeping her job!—is 'one of the new breed of chefs who are concerned about the environment and about poor eating habits in this country.' Americans eat like shit, and this chef would like to change that, with his 'private chef service in Chicago that, according to its Web site, is the client’s "link to clean, healthy food."' Oooooh, the smug liberalism on display here is enough to make us want to read The Corner."
