Taking a bite out of life
Ian Knauer spent close to a decade in the test kitchens of Gourmet Magazine where he developed recipes and co-hosted Gourmet’s Diary of a Foodie and Adventures with Ruth, both on PBS. Today, he pours his love of food into his family’s Pennsylvania farm where he grows and cooks with his own vegetables. Each meal is grown, raised, hunted and cooked on the farm which results in a uniquely American kitchen — all from scratch.
He recently released his first cookbook, The Farm, and writes for several publications including Bon Appetit, The Wall Street Journal, Men’s Health, and Men’s Journal. He is a contributor to the Cooking Channel’s Unique Eats and when not in the kitchen can be found searching anywhere and everywhere for ingredients for his next meal.
Knauer’s presentation will include a cooking demonstration!
