Project Tasteless: The Naked Chef Challenge Winner!

by Rachel on October 26, 2010

Oh, ladies. I’m like a proud mama right now. (Well, more like the proud mistress of a hip and modern brothel.) I was dying as I was reading the entries for the Project Tasteless Naked Chef Challenge. You put your best side boob forward and just went for it.

And wow, the things you can do with aprons, good camera angles, and baking dishes! Here’s a sampling of some of the contest pictures…

Awesome, right?!

I seriously loved reading these posts! There were so many double entendres and “that’s what she saids”…I was audibly snorting my way through most of them. I am sorry quite a few of you had kitchen fails (no biggie!) and I was kinda digging how many of you admitted to getting down and dirty while your meal was cooking.

When it came time to choose one…well, let’s just say I have a new sense of sympathy for contest judges. Choosing a winner was not easy, and my mom and I went back and forth on the phone about it for a good twenty minutes last night because choosing just one seemed unfair. But we finally agreed that one contestant brought perfect mix of gorgeous photos, delicious food, and a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor.

Allie from A Road More Balanced!

I loved her idea of presenting three types of crepes as a three-way, as well as those legs!

However, I have to give a shout-out to everyone who was in the top five. Honorable mentions go to:

Tenecia’s Vodka Pasta Sauce

Jasmine’s Cookie Fail

Cindy’s I Ain’t Got Crabs But You Got Crab Mac and Cheese

Manon’s Indian Fry Bread Fail

These entries were so great, from the fun pictures (Jasmine’s adorable smile and naughty husband and Cindy’s little cheek peek!) to the sheer ridiculousness (Manon and Tenecia…can we go out for a drink sometime soon!?). But seriously, all the entries were great, so please check out the other blogger participants!

Fun! I’m so excited I was an honorable mention! I’ll have you know that LAST night I baked cookie with clothes on, and they turned out. Still… that naked cooking thing is fun for the whole family, if ya know what I mean.

I’m going to bookmark this and check everyone’s entries out. It was so fun and really got me out of my comfort zone. Thanks Rachel! :)

Successful contest! Mazel tov to Allie, as soon as I saw her entry I knew I had nothing on her. Gorgeous photos and food!


6 Allie Finch October 26, 2010 at 1:52 pm

No way Dori — those glasses were SEXY & the “censored” shots — hilarious! What an interesting combination — those are often the best!


7 genesis October 26, 2010 at 12:43 pm

10 Jaclyn October 26, 2010 at 1:04 pm

Congrats, Allie! Those pictures are beautiful!

I must have screwed up with entering. Rachel, I thought we just needed to link you from our blog post? Should I have emailed also?


11 Allie Finch October 26, 2010 at 1:50 pm

Thank you Jaclyn — too bad about the mis-post :( Next Challenge! LOVED your “hypothetical” story ;)


12 Jaclyn October 26, 2010 at 1:07 pm

Yep, I see it now. I should have emailed you the link as well. Dang! I’m usually good at following instructions.


13 Allie Finch October 26, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Thanks Rachel & everyone! SO FUN. I can’t wait to look over ALL of the other entries & see what tomorrow’s challenge is!


14 Manon October 26, 2010 at 2:37 pm

YAY!! I’m glad something great like “honorable mention” came out of that shit show. It’s not every day that you dress up like an idiot and nearly burn your tits off and get rewarded for it!

You picked a great winner…Allie, your pics were GORGEOUS….and I second Rachel….”those legs!”


15 Smash @ Appreciate The Now October 26, 2010 at 2:44 pm

20 Tenecia October 26, 2010 at 6:47 pm

Umm….I think I might have a girl crush on Cindy and her vavavoom red heeels!! ;)

Thanks for the honorable mention….it was a lot of fun but I kinda hate that my husband thinks I’ll be cooking now….and naked while I’m doing it…just because I did last weekend…lol!! Like I said in my post, I’m a lush….so bring on the booze, Rachel! I mean…after my competition of course :)



21 Cindy October 31, 2010 at 2:38 pm

Just saw this comment … I must say you’re one sexy mofo yourself!

Congrats on the first challenge, can’t wait to catch you on the next one!

24 zenlizzie October 28, 2010 at 5:17 pm

I am so in awe of all these ladies. Love this idea and I love all their entries! I think this is actually the first food-blog contest that is actually interesting for more than just recipe ideas.
