Chris Cosentino

At first glance, with his Mohawk haircut, crazy glasses and rolled up pants, Chris Cosentino seems like a madman of the culinary arts. A dedicated proponent of “head to tail” dining – in which you literally feast on every part of the animal – his food may seem a little crazy too, at first. But his Grilled Beef Heart, Fried Cow Testicles and Chocolate Blood Pudding are delectable treats for the palate. And his Incanto Restaurant in San Francisco has caught the attention of many celebrated peers of the culinary world – like Jamie Oliver and Anthony Bourdain. Chris credits his admitted ADD/ADHD for his vivid imagination. And when he’s not in the kitchen, creating another delicious variation on offal, Chris can often be seen mountain-biking in the hills surrounding San Francisco, appreciating the call of the wild on another level entirely.
