About BROOKE SIEM
Brooke Siem is a chef, writer, and thyme traveler currently meandering around the world. 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 order to offset all of the culinary adventures, Brooke wandered into a CrossFit gym in 2013 and began training seriously, reaching her competitive peak as an athlete at the 2015 East Regionals. She ultimately turned her hobby into a side job, consulting for RhinoCo Fitness and writing for BarBend.com.
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, so if you think that her brand of quirk is a good fit for your professional endeavors, please reach out. In the meantime, follow Brooke's year long adventure in saying "yes" to every random request that comes her way. You can also say hi on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
