Who Is Nate Appleman?
A Greenville, Ohio native, Nate Appleman had the desirable vision of knowing what he wanted to be as a child. As a result, when Appleman was 17 years old, he enrolled in the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. By 1999, he was working at Brasa in Seattle, a French-Portuguese restaurant.
Appleman spent six months in Florence, Italy, with a friend, spurred by a growing desire to learn more about butchery and curing.
While experiencing local regions and studying the skill of salami manufacture, Appleman developed a deep appreciation for the region's concentration on seasonal ingredients and simple, time-honored processes.
Appleman quickly rose through the ranks from chef de cuisine to partner and executive chef, earning an unusual certification from The Verace Pizza Napoletana Association along the way. He was designated a 2007 StarChefs.com San Francisco Rising Star the following year, and he was named a James Beard "Rising Star Chef" in 2009 and made Food & Wine's "Best New Chefs" list. The International Association of Culinary Professionals has given him two awards for his cookbook A16 Food + Wine.
