Adam Roberts created his award-winning food blog, “The Amateur Gourmet,” in January 2004 while he was a third-year law student at Emory University. After a day of law school classes, he found the programs on Food Network “soothing,” and decided to blog about his experiences as he learned to cook.
Since then, he's published two books (The
Amateur Gourmet from Bantam Dell, 2007, and Secrets
of the Best Chefs,
Artisan, 2012), and he has hosted several shows for Food
Network online ("The FN Dish," "The Amateur
Gourmet Show," "The Taste Test"). He currently
writes for Food & Wine Magazine, the epicurious.com “epi-log,” “The
Huffington Post,” and “Serious Eats”.
He divides his time between Los Angeles and New York
