About Katie Q

I’m Katie Q. I'm a video journalist, host, and cookbook author. I think there is a story to be told everywhere. I believe that food connects people. Every week I post videos to my YouTube Channel (which has over 4 million views). My slogan is #keepitquirky because I think life is more enjoyable if you don’t take yourself too seriously. I'm based in London, England, where any day of the week you can find me recording videos, finding a new adventure or experimenting with new recipes. An Ohioan turned Brooklynite, for the past 9 years I was based in NYC. You may have caught me talking about food on NBC's Today Show, as a contestant on the Food Network's 'Chopped' or as a judge on 'Beat Bobby Flay.' I attended Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in Paris and am the author of the "Avocados" cookbook, published by Short Stack Editions. Before starting the QKatie brand, I worked for NBC, Serious Eats, and NowThis News.
