About the Author
Born in Brooklyn and raised in Queens, New York, Gregory Gourdet is the child of Haitian immigrants. A self-proclaimed health freak and avid runner, Gourdet views food as a source of nourishment as much as one of pleasure. After graduating from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, he became chef de cuisine for Jean-Georges Vongerichten, under whom he trained for almost seven years. In 2008, Gourdet arrived in Portland, OR. He led the pan-Asian kitchen at Departure for a decade, running one of the busiest restaurants in the state. His annual trips around the world connected him with the flavors and ingredients he loves so much. He is a James Beard Award nominee and a two-time Top Chef finalist as well as an All Star and Guest Judge. He has been named Chef of the Year by Eater and one of the Fittest Chefs in America by Men's Health. His wood-fired Haitian restaurant Kann will open in Portland, OR, in 2022.
JJ GOODE has written about food and travel for the New York Times, Gourmet, Saveur, Bon Appetit, Food &Wine, and Every Day with Rachael Ray. He is the coauthor of six cookbooks, including A Girl and Her Pig by April Bloomfield and Morimoto: The New Art of Japanese Cooking by Masaharu Morimoto.
