Chloe Kay Coscarelli (born October 14, 1987) is a vegan chef [2] and author. She was the first vegan to ever win a culinary competition on television.

Career[edit]

Coscarelli's stated goal is to bring delicious, meat-free dishes to a mainstream audience. She was a contestant in Cupcake Wars and her vegan cupcakes wowed the judges and garnered her first prize.[2][3] Coscarelli is a graduate of UCB,[4] where she discovered her love for cooking while sneaking baked goods into the library and making cakes for her friends. A summer internship at Millennium, a San Francisco gourmet vegan restaurant, led to a course of study at The Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City.[5] Coscarelli followed that with entry into Cornell University's Plant-Based Nutrition program.

Coscarelli was featured in the Cooking Channel television documentary "The Veg Edge" and has appeared on NBC's The Today Show, CBS's The Doctors, VH1, CNN, HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell Show and the Fran Drescher Show. In 2012, Coscarelli published her first cookbook, entitled Chloe's Kitchen. In 2013, her second cookbook, Chloe's Vegan Desserts, was published.
