Andrew Coppolino


Author

Andrew Coppolino's passion lies in promoting the amazing cooks, restaurateurs, farmers and producers in Waterloo Region and Wellington and Perth counties. If he had to, Andrew would eat pizza for the rest of his life. Luckily, he has more than one option as the food columnist with the Kitchener Post and CBC Radio Kitchener-Waterloo 89.1 FM. He holds a Master's degree in English literature from the University of Waterloo and has taught at UW, the universities of Guelph, Toronto and Toledo, Conestoga College, and at the Stratford Chefs School. Coppolino was restaurant reviewer and columnist with the Waterloo Region Record and Grand and Taste magazines and is co-author of Cooking with Shakespeare (Greenwood Press). Coppolino doesn't just like food, he loves it. Perhaps that's why he has published in Whisky Magazine (UK), Toronto Golf, Avenue Calgary, Restaurants Canada, Restaurant Report (US), Culinary Trends (US), Foodservice and Hospitality and Hotelier magazine and Canadian Gaming Business. When he's not taking the culinary world by storm, you can find Andrew volunteering as a coach with the Kitchener Soccer Club.
