In Depth

Eden Grinshpan is an accomplished chef, a dedicated traveller, and a television personality. She is known for her culinary shows, "Eden Eats" and "Log On and Eat with Eden Grinshpan." Both programs were aired on the Cooking Channel.

She is also the producer of "Top Chef Canada" and "Haylie's America." Because of her culinary arts education, she has appeared on several cooking and reality TV shows.

In an interview with Maxim, an international men's magazine, Eden revealed that she did not grow up around chefs or cooks. However, she spent a lot of time watching cooking shows on TV.

Growing up as a teenager in Toronto, her favorite television channel was the Food Network. She was interested in the shows of celebrity chefs. She loved watching Nigella Lawson, Rachael Ray, and Jamie Oliver. She was amazed at how their recipes can be anything from simple entrees to exquisite dishes.

Eden is an expert on international cooking. In 2006, she graduated from Le Cordon Bleu, a culinary school in London, England. She has a "Grande Diplome" in both pastry and cuisine.

After graduating, she traveled to India, Southeast Asia, and Israel. She learned the cuisines of the countries she visited. She also explored the culture of the people.

In India, Eden worked with several organizations. She volunteered at an orphanage called Ramanas Garden in Rishikesh. To help bring in funds for the orphans, she reopened a local cafe. She also taught them the basics of culinary arts. She helped raise awareness about the children and the situation they were in.

Eden moved to Israel and stayed there for a year and a half. In Tel Aviv, she met top chef Sabina Valdman and worked with her.

Israel is a second home to Eden. Her father was born there and every summer, the family would spend time in the Holy Land. Eden's sisters, Renny and Arielle, both live in Tel Aviv.

After a while, Eden returned to New York. There, she completed a management course at The Institute of Culinary Education. She then worked at a bakery called Babycakes. Shortly after, she met Samantha Schutz who eventually became her business partner.

On a whim, Eden ended up in the food television industry. She filmed the process of setting up and running the local cafe in India. Her parents encouraged her to document the progress. While in New York, she cut the footage down to a 15 minute reel. She then gave it to an agent from William Morris Endeavor, an American talent agency.

After two weeks, Eden received a call from the agency. She was urged to film a video pitch for a cooking channel. That was the start of "Eden Eats," her first television show.

In August 2012, the first episode of the TV series was aired on the Cooking Channel. The show featured Eden's culinary adventures. Each week, she would go to a new city to discover some of the area's unique recipes. She explored global cuisine by meeting locals who served authentic dishes from their original cultures.

In 2013, she hosted "Log On and Eat with Eden Grinshpan." In this TV series, she travels the country to meet and dine with the internet's most famous food bloggers and social media icons.

In 2017, Eden was one of the hosts of "Top Chef Canada," a reality TV series. The show features several contestants who compete against each other in culinary challenges for a grand prize.

Eden has appeared on a few more television shows, including VH1's "Big Morning Buzz Live," in which she was a guest co-host. She has also been a judge on "Donut Showdown" and "Sugar Showdown" for the Cooking Channel and "Chopped Canada" for the Food Network.

She partnered with Esquared Hospitality in New York City to open a fast-casual Middle Eastern restaurant called Dez. The place has a planned opening in 2018.

Eden is the co-owner of Ethnicity Productions, a company that she built in an effort to advance her career. She has remained a freelancer, pursuing her own interests and passion.

Eden lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with her Israeli-born husband, Ido Niv-Ron, and their young daughter, Ayv.
