Jake Cohen is a Jewish boy who loves food. He loves food so much that his entire existence, personal and professional, is pretty much centered around cooking and consuming it. Jake studied at the Culinary Institute of America, during and after which he spent time working the line at NYC institutions DANIEL and ABC Kitchen. Eventually, he transitioned out of restaurants and into food media, first at Saveur Magazine, where he headed recipe testing  in the publication's test kitchen. His career then led to writing and contributing to dozens of incredible food publications, and he served as the food editor of TastingTable.com as well as the food critic for Time Out New York.
