Husbands That Cook (Headshot)

Husbands That Cook

RYAN ALVAREZ AND ADAM MERRIN are two husbands that cook together in a small kitchen in a house on a hill in Eagle Rock, California. They met in 2001 in a recording studio where Ryan was singing with a jazz choir and Adam was the engineer. They fell in love, and five years later were married. Since its inception in 2015, their blog, Husbands That Cook, was a finalist for Saveur magazine’s Best How-To Cooking Blog Award (2016) and a Taste Talks Awards Nominee for Best Food Blog (2017). Their self-titled debut cookbook was released in March 2019 with St. Martin’s Press, containing over 130 vegetarian recipes, vibrant photos, and stories about their relationship. When they’re not cooking, they love being in nature, hiking, and spending time in their garden. Adam is also a musician, and one of the founding members of indie rock band The 88. Ryan sings classical music and acts in TV shows and commercials. Visit to learn more.
