Portrait by Vanessa Heins

Foodies have been entertained by Eden Grinshpan’s exceptional taste buds and quirky sense of humour for nearly 15 years. She sold her first show, Eden Eats, at age 23 and just kept going: hosting a show about food influencers, launching a fast-casual Middle Eastern restaurant in New York, judging several Food Network shows (including Chopped Canada) and publishing a cookbook, among other projects. She’s currently the host of Top Chef Canada, which is gearing up to shoot its 11th season. Those who don’t know Grinshpan from TV may recognize her from social media, where her 300,000 Instagram followers drool over the bold vegetable-forward dishes she whips up in her sun-drenched Toronto kitchen. Grinshpan and her husband, Ido, renovated their 1980s home in 2020, but they still spend weekends reorganizing and hunting for vintage pieces. Here’s what she’s got her eye on right now.
