First Look: Eat Ink, a Cookbook About Tattooed Chefs

Here’s Eat Ink: Recipes. Stories. Tattoos. by Birk O’Halloran and Daniel Luke Holton. The book is about, you guessed it, chefs and their tattoos. Are there tattoos of butchering diagrams? Forks, spoons, whisks (Duff Goldman, looking at you), vegetables of all colors? Yes, of course. But there are also meditations on the link between tattoos and chefs’ kitchen scars, a thoughtful eye towards lesser-known names (including a very healthy dose of Portland chefs) as well a plenty of women represented. There are also recipes alongside the tattoo talk. Keep an eye out for chefs like Marc Forgione, Gabriel Rucker, Mike Isabella, Rick Tramonto, Seamus Mullen, Andy Ricker, Dominique Crenn, and more. Eat Ink is out now from Adams Media (order on Amazon); check out a preview below.
