Join us for EATING WORDS 2022 - a discussion with food writer and author ANDREW COPPOLINO, our Joseph Hoare Gastronomic Writer-In-Residence for 2022.
Coppolino is a Waterloo region-based food commentator and food columnist for CBC Kitchener-Waterloo 89.1 and The Kitchener Post. He has published in Culinary Trends and Restaurant Report magazines (US), Avenue Calgary, Whiskey Magazine (UK) and is co-author of 'Cooking with Shakespeare' (Greenwood Press, 2008). He was formerly a restaurant reviewer with the Waterloo Region Record and Echo Weekly.
In 2018, Coppolino published 'Farm to Table: Celebrating Stratford Chefs School Alumni, Recipes & Perth County Producers' (Swan Parade Press).
Andrew credits time spent cooking professionally as apprentice chef at 20 King Restaurant in downtown Kitchener as the experience that helped him decide that he wanted to work with food from the other side of the stove, so he started writing about it!

About the JHGWIR Program: The widely loved Joseph Hoare, former food editor of Toronto Life magazine, was immensely supportive of young writers interested in food and gastronomy, writers such as James Chatto, Lucy Waverman and John Allemang. After Mr. Hoare’s death in 1997, his family chose to honour his lifelong passion for food and food writing by means of an endowment to the innovative Joseph Hoare Gastronomic Writer in Residence program at Stratford Chefs School, the only program of its kind in Canada, now in its 15th year.
Previous JHGWIR candidates include: James Chatto | Corby Kummer | Michael Symons | Ian Brown | Clotilde Dusoulier | James Oseland | Dianne Jacob | Lucy Waverman | Gabrielle Hamilton | Molly Wizenberg | Andrew George | Jane Sigal | Bob Blumer
Special thanks to Elizabeth Baird for her generous support of the JHGWIR program since its inception.
