Adam Gopnik

“Adam Gopnik is the nearest thing there is -in the English speaking world, at any rate, to a philosopher of food.”
-William Skidelsky, Gourmet London.


Adam is a remarkable speaker and consummate storyteller -warm and charming, very genuine and very good at connecting with audiences. He studied at Dawson College and then McGill. He completed his graduate work at the New York University Institute of Fine Arts.

Adam has been writing for The New Yorker since 1986, and his work for the magazine has won both the National Magazine Award for Essay and the George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting. He wrote the article on American culture for the last two editions of the Encyclopedia Britannica.

He also writes long essays on big thinkers for The New Yorker. He has a genius for bringing these people and their ideas to life in and for communicating the emotions behind these ideas, the feelings these ideas evoke in us, and their relevance to modern life.

He is author of Paris to the Moon, Through the Children’s Gate, Angels & Ages: A Short Book about Darwin, Lincoln, and Modern Life, and The Table Comes First: Family, France, and the Meaning of Food, which is a quest to find the meaning of food and what gathers around it: family, friends, lovers and conversation.
