About Emma Orlow

Hi! I write about food and design. You can find my words in T Magazine, Eater, New York Magazine, Bon Appétit, Saveur, Vice MUNCHIES, Los Angeles Times, Architectural Digest, and more. I was also formerly the Associate Food & Drink Editor at Time Out New York. For some reason, articles I've written have ended up on college syllabi and led me to speak on panels.

My NYU thesis was centered around "Food Art as Body Politics" — a topic which initially felt like bullshit. But it wasn't so random to fuse participatory art and food, after all. In addition to reporting on the cross-section of the culinary and design worlds, I've created my own food-related installations for places like the Museum of Food and Drink, an Art Basel x Mastercard event, and a show at a Zaha Hadid building.

All of this is paired with kitchen experience working for various chefs, cooking studios (for kids and adults alike), food/prop stylists, photographers, artists, and more.

I was named a 30 under 30 by Brooklyn Magazine for 2018. My writing also appeared in the Best American Food Writing 2019 book. 

And, yes, that is a Jell-O tattoo on my arm.
