Celebrity Vegan Chef Chloe Coscarelli Tells Aspiring Female Chefs, ‘Don’t Let Anyone Hold You Back’

Vegan chef and entrepreneur Chloe Coscarelli is championing women in the food industry, encouraging “aspiring female chefs” to pursue their dreams and “Don’t let ANYONE hold you back,” she wrote in an Instagram post.

Coscarelli shared photos of herself with other female chefs appearing at the recent NYC Wine & Food Festival, where she said, “I stand with my sisters.” This was the first-ever event dedicated to celebrating female chefs. In the post, Coscarelli discussed her own experience with the male-dominated food industry.“People have told me that I don’t look like a chef, don’t talk like a chef, and that I’m not tough enough to ever be a chef,” she wrote.

She then spoke on behalf of her female chef counterparts, promising we can & we will &  you’ll be sorry you ever doubted us.” 


The now-thirty-one-year-old was named one of Forbes “30 Under 30.” She’s released four best-selling cookbooks, became the first vegan champion of the reality baking competition, “Cupcake Wars,” and opened two restaurant concepts. 

The independent chef took on the monumental task of catering for the New York Twitter office – the second largest Twitter location in the world – when the company welcomed Coscarelli in honor of their tribute to Women’s Appreciation Month.

Coscarelli regularly appears on mainstream television shows, reaching a diverse audience. The self-proclaimed carnivore, celebrity chef Michael Symon, wrote the foreword to Coscarelli’s latest cookbook, praising her trailblazing efforts in the culinary space.

Coscarelli is not alone in pioneering a female-led food industry. Memphis Meats, Silicon Valley’s cultured meat startup, is revolutionizing the food industry with a female-led workforce, while across the globe, the Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh, became one of Saudi Arabia’s first hotels to allow women in the kitchen with its new vegan culinary program.
