Meet Adam Richman: Television Host, Author, Traveler and Food Expert

Filed Under: Host Central
Adam Richman grew up in the food mecca of New York City and began his love affair with food early on, sampling all of the diverse culinary specialties the Big Apple has to offer. From samosas 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, GA, Adam began a food journal to document the standout food establishments he was discovering throughout the southeastern United States. 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 gained invaluable on-the-job experience.

After earning a master's degree in fine arts from Yale University's School of Drama, Adam traveled the United States acting in many regional theaters. The nature of his work allowed him to feed his appetite for the best local dishes across America – all of which found their way into his food journal. In 2008, Adam began hosting Man v Food for Travel Channel, and has been a network staple ever since, with shows such as Man v Food Nation, Adam Richman’s Best Sandwich in America and now, Adam Richman’s Fandemonium.

Adam’s first book, America the Edible, hit stands November 9, 2010, and he is currently working on his first cookbook. Adam is a regular contributor for the TODAY Show, a board member of the Armed Services Foundation and a popular lecturer in the college circuit. In 2009 and 2010, Adam won the CableFAX award for “Best Host.”
