In what has become an annual tradition, Robbinsdale’s most exciting culinary family is putting together its yearly photographs of all that is good, gory, badass and maybe even a little sexy goings on at the Travail family of restaurants. What began as a Kickstarter reward has morphed into the annual ocular assault that is the Sexy Chef Calendar. The merry band of culinary mirth makers at the nationally notable restaurant partner with local photographer Travis Anderson to create 12 months worth of outrageous photographs staring the entire crew behind the restaurant, its sibling eatery Pig Ate My Pizza and a few notable chef friends.
The calendar began in 2014 as one of the highly sought after Kickstarter rewards when the chef collective expanded from a smaller space into new construction in downtown Robbinsdale.
Every year the images push the boundaries of taste and possibility. Past years have included chefs barbecuing other chefs, roller rink shenanigans (including friend Gavin Kaysen in a Jamiroquai hat), biker babes, bloody ninja battles, lucadores and more. The 2018 edition looks to continue that tradition.
The calendar can be bought ahead of time on the restaurant’s website for $10.
