Food - Professional nickname of TV cook Art Ginsburg, who appeared as
Mr. Food since 1982 in a series of short food inserts seen in more than 179
television markets and 400 cities nationwide. Sporting a salt-and-pepper beard,
white bib apron and chef's hat and speaking with a raspy voice, Mr. Food shared
recipes that saved time, money and that said "No! to mess and fuss and "Yes!" to
flavor and simplicity." Some of his very best recipes call for canned soup,
instant pudding, bottled sauces, cake mixes or refrigerated doughs. Mr. Food's
"Today's lifestyles demand quick, easy, readily-available foods…but you can
still be adventurous with them - a novel touch with a garnish, a new spice added
(or a regular one used differently), even a distinctive serving piece - easy
ways to turn a simple meal into a treat. And the new convenience foods? Great!
Use them and have fun with them. Basically I'm saying that 'simple', 'tasty',
and 'time-saving' don't have to mean 'expensive' - just a little extra here and
there can make you a kitchen hero!"
Trained as a butcher and a caterer, Mr. Food has authored such cookbooks as "
