Andrew Zimmern’s life with his wife of years has been of great interest. After all, he is one of the famous names in the culinary world. The one who travels all around the world in search of the peculiar taste in food has a lot to share about his work life but what life is like behind the cameras?

Andrew Zimmern is quite secretive about his wife and son

Andrew Zimmern is someone who is quite tight-lipped when it comes to his personal life. Though there are few mentions about the chef’s wife by the media outlets, here are some details with the inside scoops. 

Andrew Zimmern got married to Rishia Haas on December 29, 2002. The TV host hasn’t bothered to share much when it comes to his married life but as he mentioned in an interview, it seemed to happen in a hurried fashion.

He divulged, “We could not wait to be married,” and at the meantime, he also seemed apologetic due to the mistiming for the party. He said, “And I can’t think of anything crueler to do to my friends and family in New York and Los Angeles than to have them come here in the middle of January.”

The 56-year-old chef did take a moment to share about his wife in an interview. He mentioned his wife couple of times considering her as the best travel partner. Along with that, he also called her an ideal vacation partner.

From all these what we can figure out is, the couple is going really strong and is nowhere near to divorce. As the pair shares a teenage son, Noah, he can be another reason to bind them together with love.

Even after a decade and a half of marriage, the pair hasn’t shared much about their married life. Same thing applies when it comes to their son. However, the chef often shares pictures with his son in social medias. 

Hopefully, Andrew will be comfortable to talk openly about his wife and son, shortly.
