The Brooklyn Eagle covers the artistic stylings of world renowned pumpkin carver guy/Brooklyn Heights resident Hugh McMahon:
Brooklyn Eagle: An uncanny likeness of celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse — with the addition of an eerie orange glow — emerged from the X-acto knife held by “pumpkin carver to the stars,” Hugh McMahon. The pumpkin was destined for a tribute to Lagasse at the New York City Food & Wine Festival at the Chelsea Market.
“I’ve been on his program four or five times,” McMahon nonchalantly told the Brooklyn Eagle. “It gets very busy this time of year — the orders are pouring in. Last year I carved for Heidi Klum’s Halloween party. This year it’s Red Bull and something for the Nets. They’re talking about a logo.”
