Patrick Garland - Absinthe Cafe
Kids, don't try this at home. Or anywhere.
What do you do when you need to take a portrait of the chef of a restaurant named after a liquor strong enough you can set on fire? You set him on fire of course! Photographed for Absinthe Cafe's competition image in Gold Medal Plates Ottawa.
Update: he won GOLD at the event. Congratulations chef!
