Sam Gorenstein, Chef Partner for Wusthof Knives

It’s been nearly a year since our very own chef Sam Gorenstein was tapped by famed knife manufacturer Wüsthof to be one of their chef partners. Sam, who’s been wielding knives in the kitchen since a tender age, excitedly accepted the opportunity and was deemed the Nätural.

In December 2013, Sam flew up to New York City for a photo shoot (check out the awesome image above), where he met a couple of the fellow chefs whose talents had also been recognized: Clayton Chapman from Omaha, NE and Ann Kim from Minneapolis, MN. A day of photos was all that was needed, and suddenly, Sam’s face was plastered on a billboard in Times Square, published in the New York Times, and run in the print magazine Lucky Peach.

Throughout the months, Sam has also been submitting incredible recipes to be published over at the Defining the Edge website. Plus, there are incredible videos that will show you just how easy it is to make ceviche! Be sure to check it out and test out some of Sam’s favorite recipes.
