MCM: 13 Sexy Chefs Who Are Too Hot For The Kitchen

Just in time for Thanksgiving! We’ve compiled a list of sizzling culinary babes who we WISH were cooking us turkey dinners on Thursday (clothing and apron optional). Seriously, we wished so hard…our brains turned into mashed potatoes, and we’re currently writing this post smothered in a stupid amount of gravy. Stupid. We scoured the web, asked our foodie girlfriends, and watched a lot of cooking shows this weekend to find men who know how to flex their muscles aaaaaand steam their mussels. (See what we did there?) We’ve got everything from sexy celebrity chefs to star-of-their-own-scene hunks that make cooking our new favorite obsession. Here’s to the men who can heat up our kitchens (and our beds) any day…

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches & Johnny Depp: Yum!

Happy National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day! We thought we’d celebrate with a picture of the hottest man alive (Johnny Depp, duh!), grilling up some ooey gooey goodness. Yup, you guessed it! A scene from one of our favorite romantic comedies of the 90s, Benny & Joon.

How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches? And if that question bores you, how do you like your Johnny Depp?

Win These Wedge Booties! Guess The Photoshoot Location!

GoJane “HAS THE MUNCHIES” In Southern Cali!

Remind us to never send a hungry photographer and model on a photoshoot. Why? Because the ending result will be what you see below. A bunch of pictures taken in front of restaurants and snack shacks. But it’s actually befitting if you think about it. If you knew where this photoshoot took place, you’d know why the theme of “having the munchies” makes perfect sense. This legendary Southern California city is known for its bohemian style and lackadaisical spirit. Anyone who’s ever visited this beach town knows of its love for glassware and incense. Hundreds of people visit this area everyday in search of kooky characters and good vibes. Have you been one of them?

The first person who can tell us the exact locations of these photos wins the booties featured on the model. BE SPECIFIC…we want the city and the name of the three eateries that the model is standing in front of. Comment with your guesses! Good luck!

*Note: International winners will receive store credit in the amount of the bootie.

Shame shame on our photographer for letting our model eat a corn dog. Doesn’t he know models must stay on a strict diet of Skittles and Red Bulls?!
