In Writing

As a prolific columnist and contributing editor, chef Steven Petusevsky drew an audience of over 20 million with his passion for communicating the joy of cooking and eating nourishing, satisfying food that’s full of flavor.

Whether inspiring his readership of home cooks by shining a light on once-obscure ingredients that are now commonplace, or educating other chefs and industry procurement specialists on the best way to integrate natural foods into their repertoire, Steve helped change the way that Americans think about healthy, globally-inspired cuisine. As a frequent contributor, Steve wrote for Cooking Light (monthly column, “Inspired Vegetarian”), Meijer’s Markets Healthy Living Naturally (long-time editorial contributor), and the Chicago Tribune News Service (created the first mainstream vegetarian cooking column, “Vegetarian Today,” which ran weekly for over 20 years). Steve’s writing has also appeared in Food & Wine, Health, Relish, Fine Cooking, Caribbean Life & Travel, Supermarket Business, Prevention, Self, and Gourmet Retailer among others.
