Over the past several weeks I’ve had the chance to get to know more about Josh Lewin, Executive Chef of Beacon Hill Bistro located in the Beacon Hill Hotel. It started off like most of my interactions, with me exploring the opportunity to speak with a chef about their career. It spilled on to Twitter (back and forth about za’atar and foraging). Then, unexpectedly, it found its way to the table, eating together at a lunch pop-up held by Future Chefs Boston. The easy take away: Josh is a cool cat!

American roots in Toronto: Getting to know Sam Gelman of Momofuku Toronto

It’s hard to take an interest in the culinary world and not be aware of the food empire known as Momofuku. Originally opened in New York City by David Change in 2004, Momofuku is now a dozen restaurants strong, with outposts in Australia and Toronto.
