Featured 4.2-4.8.18 | There’s nothing sexier than a woman who loves to eat, unless she’s also a woman who’s based her career on it. Equal parts history nerd (she studied modern German and Russian history in college) and total food aficionado, Claire Thomas is the brains (and aforementioned beauty) behind the food blog Kitchy Kitchen, the Sweet Laurel Bakeshop and the podcast, A Time and A Plate, in which she explores a historic moment in food in each century, starting from the year 1000 all the way to today. She’s worked as a commercial director, food photographer, TV host and writer, and while she’s painfully bad at knitting, she’s damn good at everything else, especially if it comes with ingredients and can be researched, understood and, of course, consumed. She has a true hunger for life, and we’re thrilled to be sitting at her proverbial table.
Welcome to Claire’s week.
more about claire
Hello. My name is Claire Thomas and I’m an unabashed food enthusiast. I was born and raised in Los Angeles and have turned food into an intellectual and grumbling-stomach driven passion. Because of my proximity to great restaurants and food stuffs, the dive into the culinary arena has been exciting for an inquisitive gourmand such as myself. A self-taught chef, coupled with my incurable curiosity about food has pushed me to taste, create, and study anything and everything. I work as a commercial director, food photographer, and writer, using my blog as an experimental playground. I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures as much as I enjoy filming and writing about them. Happy eating!
