Ian Knauer is spending most of his time these days developing recipes for his upcoming cookbook based on his family’s farm in Pennsylvania where he hunts, keeps a garden and a bee hive. (You can follow along on his blog, "Big City Country Boy.")
He honed his cooking and writing chops at 'Gourmet' magazine from 2001 to 2009, where he co-hosted the magazine’s award-winning television series, 'Diary of a Foodie,' and the most recent show, 'Adventures with Ruth.' He wrote extensively for 'Gourmet' and Gourmet.com until the close of the brand in late 2009.
If you’re eating at a table with Ian, there’s a strong chance he’ll serve you something as delicious as it is strange.
