AEB is hosted by A.J. & Michelle.
A.J. is a film & communications professor and an avid home cook and home baker. His food writing has appeared in the pages of Food & Wine, Gourmet.com, Budget Travel, The Gazette, and The Montreal Mirror.
Michelle is a professional chef. She has been the co-chef of the Société des arts technologiques' Foodlab since the fall of 2011. Her recipes have appeared in numerous newspapers, magazines, and cookbooks, including La Presse, The Gazette, Elle Québec, and Les Touilleurs by François Longpré and Sylvain Côté.
Both of us collect and devour cookbooks and food lit of all kinds. We were inspired to start AEB by people like Alan Davidson, Patience Gray, Richard Olney, John Thorne, Calvin Trillin, and Paula Wolfert, and publications like The Art of Eating, Petits Propos Culinaires, and Simple Cooking.
We've been documenting our adventures in food, drink, and travel from our home base in Montreal since 2004. In 2014 we established a base in Vermont, as well.
