Jennifer Cheng


Jennifer’s curiosity in all things food-related began at a young age through memorable experiences watching PBS cooking shows with her grandmother, first-hand cooking lessons from her mother and exploring ethnic foods and traditions with an adventurous aunt. After graduating with a degree in English, she wrote in all sorts of capacities about a variety of subjects from deadly diseases to luxury sheets, so she was elated to finally combine her loves of food and writing as a writer for Whole Foods Market. A native Texan and Austinite since 1999, Jennifer enjoys nightswimming at Barton Springs, discovering new music each year at SXSW and throwing themed potlucks. She is also a little obsessed with New York City and will frequently use any excuse she can to have a picnic.
