As host of A LYON IN THE KITCHEN, Nathan Lyon shows viewers that cooking with fresh ingredients doesn't have to be intimidating or complicated. He believes great food starts fresh and the fresher the ingredients, the better the food.
Nathan began his culinary career in his grandmother's Arlington, Va., kitchen. However, it was in his grandparents' garden that Nathan first learned to appreciate the value of fresh, seasonal ingredients. While attending James Madison University, where he earned a bachelor's degree in health science, Nathan began working in restaurants. After graduating, Nathan toured Europe for six months and discovered a passion for a wide variety of regional cuisines.
