  • Chloe's first job was as a bartender at her local movie theater, where she whipped up tons of frozen margaritas and ate even more popcorn.
  • A fun fact about Chloe is that she loves fun facts, especially those about history, anthropology, and culture.
  • When it comes to the kitchen, they're more comfortable eating food than making it, but they still do their best to act as a sous chef for their friends.


Chloe grew up watching the Food Network with her mother and learning to write from her father just outside of Dallas, Texas. She attended New York University, where she studied drama and creative writing. While at NYU, they wrote countless plays, short stories, and essays, some of which were turned into full productions. After graduating in 2022, Chloe delved deeper into the world of food writing, and fell in love with how much one can learn about a culture just by looking at the cuisine. She is very excited to be making her professional writing debut with Tasting Table.


Chloe has a BFA in Drama with a minor in Creative Writing from New York University.
