Hi I’m Adam Roberts, I love to cook, but I don’t take myself too seriously.
Ever since I started my food blog, The Amateur Gourmet in January of 2004, I’ve been entertaining people with my adventures in the kitchen. I love baking, salad-making, but most of all, I love to make pasta.
I’ve written three books, including Secrets of the Best Chefs and Give My Swiss Chards to Broadway: The Official Broadway Lover’s Cookbook (with Tony-nominated actor, Gideon Glick.)
I was one of the original writers on Serious Eats, the first official web show host for Food Network, a writer on ABC’s The Real O’Neals, and I’ve contributed to such publications as Food & Wine, The Washington Post, and The L.A. Times.
Every Monday and Thursday, I write a newsletter packed with cooking stories, restaurant write-ups, links, and pictures of my dog Winston.
Subscription to the newsletter is as little as $5 a month, less than popcorn at the movies and 1/4 of a cocktail at NY bar. Signing up also gets you full access to the archives and frequent Q&As where I’ll answer all of your cooking questions ASAP.
Welcome to the club!
Excited to share my cooking and food adventures with you.
