Tina Wasserman was born in 1948 in Hempstead, Long Island. Having grown up in a family that was heavily involved in the Jewish community, she continued this way of life in her adult years. Tina met her husband, Richard, at a USY convention and after many moves throughout the years, they ultimately settled in Dallas in 1982 when her husband was offered a job at Southwestern University. Through Tina’s hard work and passion for teaching and cooking, she became the food columnist for Reform Judaism Magazine, a frequent lecturer, and has authored two cook books.
