  • Since beginning her work at Chowhound, Hilary has expanded her bar cart to include a wider selection of spirits, including absinthe, which — by the way — can make an intense but delicious swap for vodka in a martini.


Hilary began writing for Chowhound in 2023, where she has covered many topics but particularly enjoys writing about food history, baking, and cocktail crafting. Hilary has been baking and cooking for her entire life, often at the expense of her homework assignments and household chores. During her master's program, she taught composition and creative writing to undergraduate students. After completing her M.A., she began her career in writing. When not writing, she can be found exploring Washington, DC, in hopes of finding the perfect martini (vodka, extra olive brine, easy on the vermouth).


Hilary received her bachelor's degree in English from Georgia Gwinnett College in 2017. She graduated from SUNY Albany with a master's in English in 2021.
