Still not convinced that chefs are the new rockstars? The sheer number of horn-dog groupies that modern-day chefs have fawning over them should help make the case.

The New York Post dropped a report this weekend on diners who are looking for “meat” that goes beyond the kind “that comes nestled in a potato bun,” and offer themselves up to chefs. The article is filled with salacious quotes and anecdotes, including one of a woman licking orange Croc enthusiast Mario Batali’s shirt at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival when his “wife was standing two feet away.”

The stories all sound like bad porno plot lines. John Daley, the sushi chef behind New York City’s Sushi Ko, opens up about one time that a couple dined at his restaurant. Twenty minutes after the couple finished and left, the woman came back on her own looking for, shall we say, “dessert” compliments of the chef:


“She was quite physically aggressive… We drank and had sex in the back of the restaurant… She’s been back a few times, but the boyfriend wrote a nasty review on Yelp.”

Turns out if you are also on a Food Network show, like chef Marc Forgione, the offers can get even wilder. He tells the paper that the other night, a woman proclaimed to a server, “After the meal we just had, if the chef came out, I’d have sex with him in front of my husband!” The husband turned out to be a superfan of Forgione’s too, and noted, “After that meal, I wouldn’t mind watching!’”

It isn’t just male chefs that get all the attention, either. Dana Salvatore, a 25-year-old producer, tells the paper that April Bloomfield is her dream girl. “Dating a chef like April is my absolute dream. Not only is she attractive, but her food is so creative.” She adds that it is her “absolute goal to meet a chef.”

So there you have it, folks. There’s no need to join Tinder if you want people to throw themselves at you for meaningless sex; simply start working in a restaurant. Daley says you don’t have to be a big-name chef either to reap the benefits: “When I was young I cooked and smelled like food, and I couldn’t get anyone to talk to me. It was only guys like Jean-Georges [Vongerichten] or [David] Bouley or Rocco DiSpirito who partied with models… Now the field has been opened.” And if that doesn’t work, you can always try this age-old Starbucks barista pick-up move.
