Claire Alexandria Thomas (born June 18, 1986 in Los Angeles, California) is an American food enthusiast and blogger who hosts her own ABC series Food for Thought with Claire Thomas, an E/I show which is part of the weekend morning Litton's Weekend Adventure block.[1][2]

Thomas was picked up by Litton Entertainment, which programs the block for ABC, after she began a foodblog called The Kitchy Kitchen, including her photos, videos and recipes, plus interviews with wine connoisseurs, food specialists and restaurant chefs. The food videos she produced came to the attention of Green Dot Films, which hired her to direct an advert for McDonald's in 2011. Following that she directed for Pepperidge Farm, General Mills, Del Taco and other big brands. Subsequently, Litton appointed her as the host for Food for Thought. Thomas's first cookbook, published by Simon & Schuster, is scheduled to appear in 2014.[3]

Thomas is a member of the Directors Guild of America (DGA).[4]
