I am a nice Jewish boy who loves food. I love food so much that my entire existence, personal and professional, is pretty much centered around cooking and consuming it. I studied at the Culinary Institute of America, during and after which I spent time working the line at NYC institutions, DANIEL and ABC Kitchen. Eventually, I transitioned out of restaurants and into food media, first at Saveur Magazine, where I led up recipe testing in the publication's test kitchen. After Saveur, my career has led me writing and contributing to dozens of incredible food publications including time serving as the Food Editor of TastingTable.com as well as the Food Critic for Time Out New York.
Now, I’m spending my days as the Editorial and Test Kitchen Director of The Feedfeed, the largest social media-driven food publication. My nights, however, are being spent working on my first cookbook, JEW-ISH, which is to be published by HMH Spring 2021. Need a recipe conceived/tested/developed/styled? I'm your guy. Need someone to host a culinary video/event? I look great on camera, and in person (especially when I talk with my mouth full). So slide into my DMs and hit me up. And don’t forget to tell all your friends to follow me on Instagram at @jakecohen (I casually posted my feed below to make it easy for them).
