Sam Talbot is a chef, author and television personality made famous by being voted the “Fan Favorite” on Bravo’s Top Chef. In the Summer of 2013, Sam become chef and co-owner of TURF, a mobile kitchen and restaurant that serves farm to beach food out on Long Island’s East End. He was recently a host of AOL’s GMC “Trade Secrets” online show. He is also the former founding Executive Chef of the Surf Lodge in Montauk, NY (which he left in Spring 2012) and Imperial No. Nine, a sustainable seafood restaurant located in the Mondrian Soho Hotel in New York City. He is also the author of “The Sweet Life: Diabetes without Boundaries,” which was published by Rodale Books.
Sam is at the forefront of the ‘integrative kitchen’ movement, which seeks to break down the walls between the way we eat and the way we live. When conceiving dishes, Sam keeps a few simple questions in mind: What is the food? Who’s eating it? Where? When? Under what circumstances? Sam’s approach to cooking is to understand how all these questions—and their answers—interconnect. His outlook on life is the same: Sam surfs, snowboards, practices yoga, travels widely and moves easily among the worlds of food, fashion, entertainment and sports. Diagnosed at a young age with juvenile diabetes, Sam lives every hour with a profound understanding of the impact of food on life and life on food. That understanding has become a uniquely driving force for his cooking style and recipes.
