About The Author

Adam Merrin and Ryan Alvarez are two husbands who cook together in a small kitchen in a house on a hill in Eagle Rock, California. They fell in love at first sight in 2001 in a recording studio where Ryan was singing with a jazz choir and Adam was the engineer. Since its inception in 2015, their blog, Husbands That Cook, was a finalist for Saveur magazine’s Best How-To Cooking Blog Award and a Taste Talks Awards Nominee for Best Food Blog. Their self-titled debut cookbook, Husbands That Cook: More Than 120 Irresistible Vegetarian Recipes and Tales from Our Tiny Kitchen is filled with inventive vegetarian recipes, vibrant photos, and stories about their relationship. When they’re not cooking, they love being in nature, hiking, and spending time in their garden. Adam is also a musician, and one of the founding members of indie rock band The 88.
