Adam H: Questions on Your Life in Food

Anyone who has spent time with Adam knows immediately that he is passionate about food and cooking. We love grocery shopping, cooking, and eating together and I’m so lucky to share this adventure in life and food with him. He is a wonderful storyteller and I hope this is one of many guest blog posts to come.

Jeffrey B: Questions on Your Life in Food

This is the final segment of the very small Bart family edition of the “Your Life in Food” series. Since there are just four of us, I thought it would be interesting to include Adam’s family as well. The Holzband/Oberstein chapters will begin following this post so stay tuned!
Without further ado, last, but certainly not least, my brother, or as some know him, “The Shoe King of New York.”
