UK Chefs Pose In Calendar For Charity

The new year is fast approaching, and that kitchen calendar will soon need a replacement. Lucky for you, Action Against Hunger, a humanitarian group that focuses on malnourished children in 47 countries, has released its first Chefs Calendar for 2016. The calendar features a top male chef from the United Kingdom (and a seasonal recipe) every month.

The calendar is £12 (about $18), and all proceeds go to Action Against Hunger. Featured chefs include James Lowe (Lyle's), Jun Tanaka (The Ninth), Eryk Bautista (Newman Arms) and American Brad McDonald, who's been making waves across the pond with his London barbecue joint, Shotgun BBQ. Check out the year's lineup below, and be sure to shell out just a pound per month for the worthy cause (and some culinary eye candy).
