who is the gentleman gourmand?
I’m Andrew Baber and I have worked and taught in kitchens in Atlanta and Colorado, catered group events in Boston, was a personal chef and food truck consultant in San Francisco and currently am devising point-of-sale solutions for LevelUp.

I wrote Instrucktional (your guide to starting a profitable mobile food business in SF) with Matt Cohen of Off the Grid.

You can see my at my favorite Schezuan restaurant on the Food Network.

Having sampled every type of cuisine from low-country to high-brow across the US, Canada, Ecuador, France, Italy, Switzerland, Thailand, and Cambodia, I’ve determined that Rösti (aka crispy hashbrown disks of glory) is the best dish to ever be created.

what gentleman gourmand is about
I love sharing awesome foods with friends and family and I’m guessing you do too. When I find the best of the best (recipes, breakthrough techniques, food-hacks) I post about it here. You’ll also find personal video recipes with walkthroughs from shopping to plating.  Sometimes there are cook-alongs.

the good stuff: bjornfoods
I’m the author of this site and owner of bjornfoods, a premium quarterly box of goodies for you to enjoy and share with fellow foodies (think swiss vinegar, high-quality HFCS-free gochujang, secret aardvark [world’s best hot sauce] and more).
