Ian Knauer

Ian honed his cooking skills in the world-renowned test kitchens of Gourmet Magazine for almost a decade before returning to his family's farm in Pennsylvania where he wrote a cookbook (The Farm: Rustic Recipes for a Year of Incredible Food) and made a television show, also called The Farm, which airs on PBS and Amazon Prime.

Ian founded The Farm Cooking School and was open for just a couple months when, along came Shelley...
