Growing up in the food Mecca of New York City, Adam Richman began his love affair with food early on, sampling all of the diverse culinary specialties The Big Apple had to offer. From samosas to sushi, even at a young age, Adam had a desire to taste it all.

As an undergraduate at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, Adam began a food journal to document the standout food establishments he encountered. Years later, after earning a master's degree in Fine Arts from Yale University's School of Drama, Adam traveled the United States satiating two of his life passions simultaneously: acting in regional theatre and subsequently working in nearly every echelon of the restaurant world coast-to-coast. The nature of his work allowed him to feed his appetite for discovering the best local dishes across America -- all of which found their way into his ever-expanding food journal.

As host of Man v. Food and now Man v. Food Nation premiering June 1, 2011, Adam has developed a nearly encyclopedic knowledge of mouth-watering local specialties across the country. Most recently, Adam wrapped up the third season of Travel Channel’s most popular show, and also released his first book, America the Edible, A Hungry History from Sea to Dining Sea. America the Edible revisits some of Adam's favorite food places, recalling memorable meals and revealing why we eat what we eat throughout the US.

In 2009 and 2010 he won the CableFax award for Best Host and was named one of Yahoo's "Most Fascinating People in 2009." Adam relishes the role that allows him to become his viewer's ambassador to all things delicious.

Adam currently resides in Brooklyn, NY.
