Geof Manthorne, Rock Star
Friday, September 22, 2006 | posted by Mike

I really don’t want to start a turf war with the fine folks over at food network addict. I completely agree with their devotion to Ace of Cakes personality Mary Alice, which is well documented and features a two-part interview with the Charm City Cakes employee and Duff Goldman sidekick.

But we have to admit that our personal favorite on the show is sous chef Geof Manthorne. Not only does he have the coolest name in the history of the world, but he also has a certain laid-back demeanor and absurdist sense of humor that leaves us in stitches. He’s effortlessly funny, such as when he riffed on eggs last week (I still have no idea what he was talking about, but it was hysterical) or created a rice crispy canoli last night. Literally, I could watch a show that just followed Geof around during the day.

Well, it turns out that Geof is multitalented. In addition to decorating the cakes, he also appears to be a fairly well-know Baltimore area musician. And, thanks to the power of YouTube, you can see his performance (filmed in the Charm City Cakes kitchen, by the looks of it) on the video below.
