George Yatchisin

Coauthor of the Foodies cover story, George Yatchisin has been eating since he was born. He’s really cared about it since he was 7 and could order and devour the veal birds at long-closed La Bohème in New Jersey. He thought his mom was a fine cook until he started cooking himself (vegetables aren’t always over-cooked!) but is proud he finally figured out how to bake Slovak kolache (a breakfast pastry roll) in her memory. From his dad came an appreciation of drink, and he wishes he could share with him his ginger, honey, and lemon Rob Roy variation called The Health Inspector.
