2014 Winner: The Future of Junk Food

Indie chefs Samuel Monsour and Mark O’Leary have impressive resumes (including gigs at jm Curley and O Ya) and a wicked sense of humor. One of their cleverest recent projects is this pop-up series, which constructs simulacra of horrible mass-market crap from utterly delicious ingredients, such as a sandwich that echoes a McDonald’s Filet-o-Fish by layering a Peekytoe crab patty and sea urchin in a squid-ink bun. It’s mind-bending food, even if you don’t get their subtle points about eating sustainably and responsibly.
