Growing up in the food mecca of New York City, Adam Richman began his love affair with food early on, sampling all the diverse culinary specialties The Big Apple had to offer. From somosas to sushi, even at a young age, Adam had a desire to taste it all.
Years later, as an undergraduate at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, Adam began a food journal to document the standout food establishments he was discovering throughout the Southeastern U.S. Though he majored in International Studies, his love of all things edible naturally drew him into the culinary world after graduation. Subsequently, he built a solid resume working in nearly every echelon of the restaurant world, from coast to coast and from the counter to the kitchen. Though he never trained professionally, Adam was able to gain invaluable on-the-job experience in the various restaurants he worked in.
After earning a master's degree from Yale University's School of Drama, Adam traveled the United States acting in many regional theatres. The nature of his work allowed him to feed his appetite for tasting the best local dishes across America -- all of which found their way into his food journal.
On stage and behind the camera, Adam most recently preformed in a production of "Walls" at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City. He has also appeared in episodes of "Guiding Light," "Law and Order," "All My Children" and "Joan of Arcadia."
Adam currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
