Seth is the host and executive producer of Food Biker, a culinary motorcycle television show that is currently in production this. On Food Biker, Seth will be motorcycling around America, cooking with chefs, and meeting with experts in both the food and beverage worlds. After a two-page center spread in the Boston Herald, Seth’s project is gaining both public attention and momentum.
In 2008, Seth decided to pursue his lifetime passion for the culinary world professionally, bringing his science background into the kitchen. Seth attended Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Cambridge, MA, where he learned to master classical French savory and sweet culinary techniques and the dedication and drive that the restaurant industry demands. During this time, he took his culinary skills to a higher level via internships for PBS’ Simply Ming and PBS’ America’s Test Kitchen.
In 2010, Seth graduated with high honors and both an A.A.S. degree and Diplôme. In addition to doing occasional day stages, cooking at private chef gigs, and working at food and wine events, Seth regularly shares his passion for the culinary, beverage, and motorcycle worlds through writing and food photography for the “Food Biker” blog.
After many winetasting and bartending classes over the years, Seth passed the Court of Master Sommeliers Introductory Sommelier Examination in 2009 and remains an active member of the Boston Sommelier Society.
By interning on both Season 7 on PBS’ Simply Ming (2009) and Season 11 of PBS’ America’s Test Kitchen (2010), including a spring externship at the latter, Seth continued to master culinary techniques, while learning the culinary media and production skills required to take “Food Biker” from idea to reality.
After graduating Brown University in 1993 with a B.A. in Biology, and performing both academic and industrial lab research, Seth attended medical school at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. After falling in love with his first motorcycle and Midwestern back roads, he voluntarily left during his third-year clerkships to found a few small businesses, in what eventually became divisions of the Black Diamond Group, LLC.
In 2010, Seth graduated Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Cambridge, MA, with high honors and both an A.A.S. degree and Diplôme, transforming him from an amateur cook into a culinary professional.
[NOTE: Food Biker neither endorses nor discredits the current quality of education offered by the Boston campus of Le Cordon Bleu.
As of 2011, the Boston campus of Le Cordon Bleu no longer offers the joint A.A.S. degree and Diplôme program. Apparently, the Boston campus now currently offers a significantly revised and truncated program, awarding students with only a certificate upon completion. However, the school has apparently retained its accreditation in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.]
