  • Eloise has traveled to over 50 countries, eating everything she could find along her way.
  • Her obsession with food has led her to many unforgettable experiences, including baking baguettes with a French baker and going wild mushroom-picking with a Hindu priest.
  • She writes about travel and food on her Medium page, and in 2021, she was a Semi-Finalist in the Medium Writers' Challenge.


Eloise has worked as a freelance journalist and writer for seven years. Her favorite topics are related to food and travel. Secretly, food is the reason she travels in the first place. She loves tasting new flavor combinations, adding to her book of recipes, and, above all, discovering how different cultures come together over a meal. She has bylines in the New York Times, Euronews, Atlas Obscura, Matador, and the Femedic.


Eloise has a master's degree in journalism from Sciences Po in Paris.
