Adam Richman has met his fair share of foodie challenges as the host of the Travel Channel's most popular shows, Man v. Food and Best Sandwich in America, and sampling everything from unbearably spicy chicken wings to monstrously huge stromboli. So what does he serve up when he's behind the stove? These 150 recipes are the perfect blend of Adam's experiences--featuring homemade versions of his favorite road treats (adapting a signature Philly sandwich into dumplings, or giving an Italian spin to the Twin Cities classic Juicy Lucy burger) as well as totally original recipes to punch up your everyday meals. (Just try his chocolate mole pudding with toasted pumpkin seeds, or his poutine made with sweet potato fries, maple-glazed pork belly, and fresh burrata.) He brings in a few family favorites as well (a wild mushroom tart sprinkled with crunchy panko, or his mom's spinach pie), and shares the stories that inspired these meals in his warm, hilarious voice. Adam shows you how to pull out the stops at the dinner table and serve up delicious dishes every time without hitting the road.
ADAM RICHMAN grew up in the food mecca of New York City, and even at a young age had a desire to taste it all. A graduate of the Yale School of Drama and the veteran of numerous roles on soaps, network shows, and regional theater, he came into his own as host of Man v. Food, which was an immediate and record-breaking hit for Discovery's Travel Channel. He has since hosted its sequel, Man v. Food Nation, and Adam Richman's Best Sandwich in America, and is the host of the upcoming NBC culinary game show Food Fighters. He appears often around the country and currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
