It's always tough deciding how to pose for a photo. Do you want to look cute, endearing, bored, engaged, innocent (which is especially important for things like mug shots)?
For chefs--especially those of the celebrity variety--posing for the camera and looking good on film is a kind of survival skill. (What, you think Jamie Oliver got famous just because of the way he cooked an eel pie?) There are even classes given in just how not to look like a total douchebag once the cameras start clicking.
But fI think all you need to know was described in this week's episode of Portlandia. See, the Portland Dining Guide was coming out and there were a couple chefs who needed to have their pictures taken, and, well . . .
Check out the video after the jump. You'll see exactly how it all turned out.
Personally, I liked "The Tiger." And doing lines of "flour?" That's always a shot that's going to make the cover.
