Halloween: Dress Like a Chef

Scrounging for a last-minute Halloween costume? Get inspiration from some of Food & Wine's favorite chefs.

You can be a culinary super hero in Mario Batali's now-iconic look: red wig pulled in a low ponytail, baggy shorts and orange clogs from Crocs. Or, if you use Halloween as an excuse to dress sexier that usual, try Nate Appleman's signature style: Crisp chef whites and two armfuls of faux tattoos. For something more extreme, Guy Fieri's everyday look is instantly recognizable: the must-wear retro 1950s bowling shirt and sunglasses plus optional bleached hair. Whatever chef-inspired costume you choose, we suggest staying in character until the next morning and making an awesome post-Halloween breakfast.
