Chef Bleifer’s job at the Food Network is to oversee the team that takes care of the food needs for about 15 shows.  His team caters events in the kitchen, food-styles for photo shoots, develops recipes for Food Network Kitchens, sets show hosts up at local talk shows, preps and styles for vignettes, and many other projects.

He also creates the menus for the Food Network’s catered events, food-style photo shoots and hosts Entwine food & wine pairing events across the country.

Chef Bleifer says his culinary icon is Wolfgang Puck, and his favorite cookbooks are Jean-Louis Palladin’s Cooking with the Seasons and Rick Bayless’ Authentic Mexican.

He says one of the kitchen tools he can’t live without is a rasp grater and, when he’s in the kitchen, the music he most likes to listen to is “Modern or classic rock, as long as it has a good beat.”
