Adam Waxman – son of Sara – has a bountiful heap of experience behind him. Having traveled the globe, eating his way through different cultures, he joined his mother at the family publication DINE Magazine – which to this day remains one of the most well-respected Toronto food ‘digests’. Find out more about his DINE-asty in today’s Friday’s Foodie.
When and why did you start writing about food?
1997. It was also when I first learned to email. I had just moved to Japan, and wanted to write home about what I was eating.
What do you love most about food?
When something is prepared with love – from its sourcing to its plating – I can taste it.
What do you do when you aren’t writing about or eating food?
Trying to work off calories.
Do you cook? If so, what’s your specialty? If not, why?
Of course. Eggs. There’s so much one can do with an egg.
What’s your favourite type of food(s) and where do you go to get it?
Thai. I’m still looking.
What’s your favourite hidden gem?
My mom’s kitchen.
What’s the most memorable meal you’ve ever had?
A Matsuzaka steak in Kyoto – it was perfection, but I didn’t need to be shown a Polaroid of the cow.
What’s your biggest restaurant pet peeve? (Play nice.)
When a waiter man-handles my water glass.
