Chloe 1

Last week, we introduced you to adorable vegan chef, Chloe Coscarelli. We were lucky enough to stop by her book signing and meet her in person, and boy is she adorable. Chef Chloe came ready to talk about food, and a batch of vegan mini cupcakes (major bonus points). To make matters even more unbearable (and we mean that in a good way), said cupcakes were adorned with glitter.

Chloe gave a talk about vegan cooking and what it means to be vegan, followed by a little Q&A session. Afterward there was a wonderful meet and greet, where the young chef proceeded to sign books and talk to her fans. She spent so much time with each person that the owners of Omnivore Books were ready to close up before she was done! Now that’s too much to handle (also in a good way).

Before Chloe left the bay, we managed to snag her for a quick interview! Check it: read more »


It’s no secret that the vegan culture is thriving in Berkeley. There are countless vegan restaurants in the area, all of the dining halls have vegan options and there’s even a vegan cinnamon roll shop near campus (which is like, AMAZING). It’s even a pretty typical reaction from someone who hears that you’re a Berkeley student:

“You go to Berkeley? You must be like, really smart.”

“You go to Berkeley? Do you even go to class, or are you just protesting all the time?”

“You go to Berkeley? So, does that mean you’re like, a weird vegan hippie now?”

We’ve all heard it. It kind of goes without saying that the vegan food culture comes with a certain stigma. The food tastes bland, there are little to no options, vegans are trying to convert you to a lifestyle that’s much less fun … the list goes on. Well, listen up everyone because there’s a new (and young) vegan chef who’s changing minds left and right about the vegan world! She’s been taking the food industry by storm and making the vegan lifestyle look chicer than ever. She’s gorgeous, she’s sweet and best of all, she’s a recent Berkeley alum. Meet Chloe Coscarelli. read more »
