Some chefs get immortalized in comic books. But Departure head chef and current Top Chef Boston contestant Gregory Gourdet has gotten the video game treatment.
In a move befitting the Portland chef's seemingly tireless energy, Sage Restaurant Group, which owns Departure, has turned the chef into a mohawk-sporting avatar for its new mobile video game "Kitchen Rush."
Players get to pretend they're Gourdet -- slicing, dicing and cooking their way toward points redeemable at the restaurant for items like edamame, smoked salmon rolls, and wings. Players can also link up with friends a la Candy Crush and compete for the highest score.
The game, designed for iPhones and iPads, is free and available through iTunes.
