The author of the nationally released 'The Single Guy Cookbook' (2015, Page Street) and the owner of TAPPED Beer Trucks, Avi counts his participation in various charitable showcases among his varied accomplishments. When he isn't writing menus, planning events and working the line, Avi is teaching classes to young restauranteurs, consulting on quick serve openings, playing with his two young children and spending time with his loving wife.
