(AP) Two celebrity chefs from the U.S. are getting a cool reception in Haiti.

Aaron Sanchez and John Besh were forced to abandon a tour of a farmers market in the mountain town of Kenscoff by Mayor Widjmy Clesca.

The mayor said photographers accompanying Sanchez and Besh couldn't enter the market because they might take photos that would be unflattering for the town near the Haitian capital.

The chefs then went with their hosts from the aid group Oxfam America to visit a community organization that works with local farmers. But the mayor's office called ahead and said that visit hadn't been approved.

The two chefs have both appeared on cooking programs in the U.S. Later Tuesday, they appeared on Haitian television. They're scheduled to leave the country Wednesday.
