The Author
Michael Turback was trained as a restaurateur at the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration.
He opened his first restaurant, Turback’s of Ithaca, at age 22. Michael successfully pioneered the use of fresh, local grown food and wine. That sparked trends now seen throughout the restaurant industry. Loyalty to small local farmers, and wine tasting events with only local wines, helped to popularize American regional dining. Michael’s achievements were recognized by most major national daily newspapers, the Food Channel, and major food magazines.
Bon Appetit Magazine hailed Turback’s as ”the best restaurant in New York State,” and the ”Restaurant Business Magazine” awarded Turback’s with ”Best American Wine List”.

Michael has written 7 great food/cook books among them the ITHACA FARMERS MARKET COOK BOOK, GREETINGS FROM THE FINGER LAKES, ALL THE GIN JOINTS and HOT CHOCOLATE.
He also runs a very successful online store with his brother under the name NEW YORK FIRST, selling New York specialties all over the world.
