Welcome to Moonbeam Kitchen!

Hello, my name is Chloe. I love to cook. My favorite time of the day is when I get to cook because I get to create something special for the people that I love.

I grew up in a household where food was celebrated, created, and shared. I've always been surrounded by friends who worship food and the genius of those who create it. So, these influences paired with living in Los Angeles, a food mecca, have turned me into a fellow food worshiper. I graduated from Bard College in May 2016 and living in the Hudson Valley, where Bard is, for four years allowed me access to a whole new kind of food culture where. I worked in the food industry there where I learned about local produce and ways of keep fresh food simple and tasty.

The title, Moonbeam Kitchen comes from my nickname as a baby,"moonbeam Chloe." I had a shiny bald little baby head that glowed like a moonbeam. My logo is influenced by Wallace & Gromit's "A Grand Day Out" where the moon was a wheel of cheese.

Most of the photographs for my recipes are taken by my talented twin sister, photographer Jessica Chappe and the logo image for Moonbeam Kitchen was created by my friend Nikky Ucedo
