Hello! My name is Cindy Chou "Zhou" 周昀 and I am a professional chef, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), recipe developer, food videographer, photographer, and food writer. I was professionally trained at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY and studied nutritional sciences at NYU and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
I love creating diverse recipes and cooking videos that are often inspired by my Taiwanese roots and my time living in North Carolina, Georgia, Taipei, New York City, and California.
After cooking in NYC at places including Haven's Kitchen and at silent meditation retreats, I have been teaching cooking and nutrition classes and cooking for families as a private chef. I've also worked with various clients as a food stylist for video series and online food publications, tested recipes for cookbook authors, and developed recipes for nutrition departments.
My prior experience as a mechanical engineer working at a startup electric car company allows me to approach my culinary and nutrition work with a unique lens.
here are a few ways we can work together:
recipe development & testing
food videography & photography
food & nutrition writing
