Bio

 

Aviva Kanoff has been described as “the Indiana Jones of cooking” — an

adventurer, world traveler and fearless hero on the ground, in any vehicle and

Aviva Hanglidinganywhere with a cooktop. Her globe-trotting has taken her to the far reaches of

Peru and India, Italy to Israel, Croatia to Southeast Asia and then some, where

she has tasted the local flavors, photographed the feasts and recreated the

bountifully flavored dishes of these exotic places in her own kitchen. She has

enjoyed cooking and the visual arts ever since childhood, and she has matured

into a talented painter, a world-class photographer and creative cook, thanks

to her degree in studio art from Hunter College, her graduation from the French

Culinary Institute and her years as a personal chef.
