Cosmopolitan names Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson one of the most sizzling chefs in the country

Okay, so here's a thoughtful question: Would you rather get naked and dirty with Lon Symensma, the Denver-bound former New York pretty boy culinary artist who NYeater called a "strong contender for the title of New York's Hottest Chef," or Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson, the executive chef of Frasca Food & Wine in Boulder?

The reason for the curiosity stems from the fact that Cosmo, the sexy women's magazine that men read for the articles, unleashed their list of 14 Hottest Male Chefs, and coming in at No. 14 is none other than local spellbinder Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson, whose wallet-size photo (that's him, to your left) is captured in a cheesy one sentence synopsis: "We loved you on Top Chef Masters -- in fact, we could practically smell our chemistry cooking."

So, the question is: Who'd you rather? Symensma or Mackinnon-Patterson?
