Fairfield, California: Chef Made of Kitchen Junk

Mustachioed metal chef made of kitchen kettles, pots, and pans raises a wine glass. Funny; not big.

Scrap metal wine chef.

Funny Chef

If you're touring wine country you may want to stop at Mankas Steak House to visit this kooky chef. He has all of his tools on a belt around his plump belly. He's holding a glass of wine and a stockpot. We were visiting Veza Winery next door. Tip: there's a metal Darth Vader head around the corner.
