The New Direction


This is my first official blog post for my new personal website! I’d like to thank you for taking the time to read this. will be (is already?) where I post my thoughts on all things culinary. This includes recipes I try, cooking techniques, reviews of cookbooks (and anyone who knows me knows that I love cookbooks), equipment reviews, photos of tasty new food I’ve discovered, and anything else I feel like writing about.

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Chef Ryan Callahan (yes just like the website!) and I am an American chef. I won a 2016 Gourmand award for my first book Cooking for Chemo …and After! Since then I have published Cooking for Kids With Cancer, Chef Ryan Callahan’s Tasting Journal and Chef Ryan’s How-to-Cook Cookbook. As a shameless plug, my books are available on Amazon, and any major local book retailer.

I am really excited about the new opportunities to further my “personal brand” as they call it in the biz. Which is to say I am excited to share all of my expertise in the culinary world with you! If you ever have any questions, just write me directly:

So again, thank you for taking the time to read this post, and check back soon for great new stuff!

Oh and don’t forget to sign-up for my cooking club email newsletter to keep upto date on all the stuff that I am doing!
