Oooh. Hadn't thought about Padma Lakshmi. I only know her as a judge on one of those competitive cooking shows. (Can't remember which one it was, but I sure as hell remember her.) Is she a chef?

Is she a chef? C'mon Mike is that important? That question has to be a diversion from what you were thinking. I forgot all about Padma, just out of the league of most of us.

Padma is gorgeous and certainly a celebrity but she's definitely not a chef.

My thoughts on her are quite pure. Pure.....something.

My votes are Nigella Lawson (although on her latest show she seems to have lost a lot of weight and altered her face, which is disappointing) and Cat Cora, whom I had the pleasure of working with once at a charity event in culinary school. She is very tiny, but absolutely stunning, and she can really work a crowd!

As for the guys, I'd have to say Fabio Viviani from Top Chef a few seasons ago.

It is harder to judge the attractiveness of celebrity chefs when they don't do pictorial features in Playboy like Padma just did (or so I am told), but then I'm sure no one here ever reads that magazine anyway..... :twisted:

I just googled here - it isn't anything really risque - see http://www.starpulse.com/news/Kevin_Bla ... gh_lingeri

It says it is the December issue, so better hurry.

She has done a bunch of nude work which you can also find by googling, but out of respect for a family forum I decline to post urls you can find yourself if so inclined. :twisted:

I named my car after him. :)

Met him at LAX last year. He's a lot shorter than I expected, maybe 5' 5". :(

Come now. If we are going to talk nude, let's do nude. And, Serena wasn't even in Playboy. This was in no longer published Jane, a Magazine for women. And I hear she cooks too!

And then there's Anthony Bourdain here: http://www.buzzfeed.com/gavon/anthony-bourdain-leaked-nude-pic.

The description is better than the pic!
