Andrew Zimmern Net Worth $10 Million
Andrew Zimmern was born to Jewish parents Caren and Robert Zimmern. Being 14 years old he started his formal culinary education at the Dalton School, and afterwards Andrew became a graduate from Vassar College, which specialises in all aspects of catering.
Andrew initially worked his way up through relatively minor jobs in several restaurants, however, his life hasn’t all been smooth sailing – he became hooked on alcohol and drugs, and lived this period of his life stealing and homeless, but after a year he entered Hazelden Center in Minnesota for treatment, and where he now works as a volunteer. Andrew then returned to employment by washing dishes at New York’s Café’s Un Deux Trois Minneapolis restaurant in 1992, but when a cook missed a shift, Andrew took over, and in less than two months became Executive Chef. He subsequently turned Un Deux Trois into a very popular gastro-bistro, during his eventual six-year stint there.
Andrew pursued a career as a general manager or executive chef in various top rated restaurants, and so Zimmern gained popularity and increased the total amount of his net worth. Due to his popularity, he has more recently been lecturing at the New School for Social Research on restaurant design and management.
Andrew subsequently increased his net worth significantly as a freelance journalist and columnist. He initially won an award for his column in ‘Mpls. St. Paul Magazine’, and since 2006 has been hosting the television cuisine show ‘Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern’ on the Travel Channel – over seventy episodes have been shown during the six seasons the show has been on air, and is apparently loved by audience judging by viewing figures and so is commercially very successful. Moreover, the series has won two CableFax Awards, for the Best Online Extras and for the Best Television Program: Food. In addition, Andrew is the winner of the James Beard Award as the Outstanding TV Food Personality. Furthermore, Zimmern received two Effie Awards for his outstanding online series entitled ‘Toyota’s Appetite for Life’.
Of course with reputation comes higher net worth, and Andrew’s has been added to by appearing as a guest star at a number of first rate events, charity shows, and festivals, including The Twin Cities Food and Wine Experience, ‘Food and Wine Magazine’s Aspen Festival’ and others, as well as on popular TV talk shows.
Zimmern is also the author of the books ‘The Bizarre Truth: How I Walked out the Door Mouth First … and Came Back Shaking My Head’ released in 2009, and ‘Andrew Zimmern’s Field Guide to Exceptionally Weird, Wild, and Wonderful Foods’- in 2012 – all adding to his net worth.
Perhaps most significantly, he launched Andrew Zimmern’s Canteen in 2012, based on ideas he gained by visiting street stalls and markets around the world. It is a type of quick service , now actually licensed at Bank Stadium and Target Field in Minneapolis, and Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. It operates under the umbrella of Passport Hospitality, a restaurant design company founded in 2015 by Andrew, through which he and his culinary team have become consultants to a variety of restaurant and retail projects. Clearly his net worth is very likely to continue its upward trend.
In his personal life, Andrew Zimmern married Rishia Haas in 2003, and they have a son. The family lives in Edina, Minnesota.
