Chloe Kay Coscarelli (born October 14, 1987) is a vegan chef [4] and author. She became the first vegan to win a culinary competition on television and was named to the 2017 Class of 30 Under 30 by Forbes.[5]


Chloe Kay Coscarelli is the daughter of filmmaker Don Coscarelli.[6] She is a graduate of UC Berkeley,[7] where she discovered her love for cooking. A summer internship at Millennium, a gourmet vegan restaurant located in San Francisco, led to a course of study at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City,[8] followed by entry into Cornell University's online Plant-Based Nutrition certificate program.


Coscarelli was a contestant in Cupcake Wars, her vegan cupcakes garnering her first prize.[4][9]

She 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, and The Fran Drescher Show.

In 2012, she published her first cookbook, Chloe's Kitchen, followed by Chloe's Vegan Desserts in 2013 and Chloe's Vegan Italian Kitchen in 2014.

By Chloe[edit]

In mid-2015, Coscarelli partnered with ESquared Hospitality to open the vegan fast casual restaurant By Chloe[10] (stylized by CHLOE) on Bleecker Street in the West Village of New York City.[11] By 2017 the chain comprised five locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan,[10] with additional locations in Los Angeles and Boston.[12]

In July 2017, Coscarelli was forced out by ESquared in an arbitration award after she filed suit in 2016 over control of the company.[13]
