Bruce Goldstein is a native New Yorker from The Bronx. He began his career as a professional show drummer at an early age.

 

However, his passion did not begin with a drum roll, but an onion roll! 

 

He believes teaching kids how to cook for themselves is the best chance we have to make sure they make healthier eating choices.

 

 

 

 

His earliest memory is sitting with his grandmother by Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn, watching the boats go by while eating a fresh-baked onion roll.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bakeries continued to be a fixture of Bruce’s childhood. His house was up the hill from the Stella D’oro biscuit factory, and the entire block smelled like fresh-baked anisette cookies every day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After graduating from the High School of Performing Arts in New York City in 1977, Bruce began drumming in the Catskill Mountains and spent 5 years living at Grossinger’s Hotel & Country Club. His room happened to be situated behind the bakery, and he woke up to the smell of fresh onion rolls and rye bread every morning.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When one of his band mates opened a private poker club, Bruce started working as a personal chef – cooking on demand for demanding clients, such as the cast members of ‘Goodfellas’. It was there that he learned how to cook “just about anything and everything” – while keeping the atmosphere fun and entertaining.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bruce relocated to Los Angeles in the mid 1980’s and enjoyed being part of the music, theatre and film scene, and comedy writing for theater and television. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He had always collected menus and recipes from his favorite chefs and party places, and had a habit of talking people into sharing their secret recipes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

His love for cooking and his desire to share the history of his fun food adventures with his daughter lead him to write “The Comedy Cookbook For Kids: The Complete Guide To Becoming A Professional Stand-Up Chef”. 

 

 

 

 

 

Now living in Florida, Bruce continues to enjoy playing drums professionally with area bands, including the Fort Pierce Jazz and Blues Society. His company, 3D Come True, LLC, is dedicated to bringing lost spaces and places back to life in virtual 3D immersion. “Return To The G3D Resort”, is a revisiting and re-imagining of a vintage Catskill Mountain-style hotel, on the Roblox gaming platform.
