Wayne Nish

He inherited his love of cooking from his Maltese mother, grandmother and aunt, and his love of the exotic from his Japanese-Norwegian father. Nish didn't start his professional life with cooking and becoming a chef in mind. In college, he studied journalism and architecture and didn't begin "a new life in the world of food" until he left other successful career endeavors. Nish's stunning career as chef, restaurateur and food expert has spanned the last 18 years. [+]
