CHEF AMANDA COHEN

DIRT CANDY
NEW YORK, NY

Disregard everything you’ve ever learned about cooking vegetables. With this edict as her guide, Chef Amanda Cohen has been delighting both minds and stomachs in the heart of New York’s East Village. Raised in Toronto, battle-tested across the kitchens of New York, Amanda is widely regarded as a pioneer for her innovative cuisine, and as a leading female voice in a traditionally male-dominated industry.

AMANDA'S
REQUIRED READING

The Flavor Bible by Karen Page & Andrew Dornenberg “I’ve been obsessed with it for years.”

AMANDA'S
SOURCE OF
INSPIRATION

“I’ve been doing this for about 15 years, I’ve read hundreds of cookbooks and eaten in close to a thousand different restaurants; that all combines to serve as a sort of ever-boiling pot of ideas in my brain. When the next idea looks done, I fish it out and start experimenting with it.”

 

 

A GREAT CHEF IS:

  • Willing to work with vegetables.
  • Obsessive to a point where she probably needs a clinical diagnosis.
