Art Ginsburg (a.k.a. Mr. Food) Gets Grilled
'Twas the night before Christmas, and if you weren't at the house, you were probably at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek's Sweet Dreams event schmoozing with Art Ginsburg. Wait--you don't know who that is? Yeah, we bet you do. He started out as a butcher then a caterer with a flair for theatre, only to become known as Mr. Food for about three decades as one of America's first food personalities with a television cooking show. (Which, by the way, continues to be syndicated and is enjoyed by up to six million viewers a day.) Mr. Food has also written more than 50 cookbooks, the latest of which is Mr. Food TV Favorites, and trademarked the sound bite, "Ooh it's so good!!" But he's not quite finished making his mark. "I want to keep doing what I'm doing for many more years," he wrote in an e-mail. "I'm so lucky because I love what I do. And when you love what you do, you never really 'go to work.'"
