'The Order of the Mink'

Recommended Posts

What is the badge in the photo below? I have jokingly named it 'The Order of the Mink'.

This has the general "feel" of the various "brotherhood" awards of chefs and vintners at the highest professional levels. See: http://www.omsa.org/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=866

Either that or it is a self-awarded joke.

Just my thoughts at a late/early hour, why would anyone award themselves that? I would have thought that if one was into self awarded gongs, something that said BLING BLING would have been much better. :wacky:

Thanks for the replies. If it is a brotherhood, I guess it should be something else than chefs and vintners as the man is in the academic world. There is also the possibility that he is a very talented (amateur) chef with an academic degree... :unsure:

On the other hand, the brotherhood badges on the site you indicated are a bit more ... "BLING BLING" (as Alex K had put it) than 'The Order of the Mink' above.

Have you tried asking him?

Unfortunately I had no chance to talk to him. I spotted him in the crowd and took a snapshot.
