Chef. Writer. Thyme traveler.


Brooke Siem is a "categorically homeless" writer, speaker, and chef. After nearly a decade long food & wine career that includes everything from working as a line cook to winemaking to co-founding a successful boozy cupcake company, Brooke left Manhattan in order to live, work, and eat around the globe. 

Prior to consciously giving up a home address, Brooke graduated with a (totally useful) history degree from Middlebury College in 2008 and received a culinary degree from the Institute of Culinary Education in 2009. At 25, she co-founded Prohibition Bakery and was named as one of Zagat's 30 Under 30. She co-authored her first book in 2015, Prohibition Bakery, available online and in stores nationally. Early this year, Brooke was crowned a Food Network "Chopped" Champion after beating her competitors in a chocolate themed episode. 

In May of 2017, Brooke sold her half of Prohibition Bakery in order to continue working and writing remotely. She is always looking for creative collaboration and speaking opportunities, so if you think that her brand of quirk is a good fit for your professional endeavors, please reach out.
