Chef is in Alaska right now, missing all the fun of a flooded basement and lots of snow and slick roads. Poor guy.
Instead, he’s been working day and night, carving ice. Here’s his finished piece for the Single Block Classic in the World Ice Art Championships. He and his teammate worked for three days carving this one. (Photo courtesy Ice Alaska.)
It’s a little hard to see, but it’s a female diver with a school of jackfish (that’s why it’s called Playing with Jacks.)
Sunday he started working on the Multi-Block Classic, which is something like 60,000 pounds of ice. He and three teammates have six days to carve.
