Cynthia Groseclose

Chef . Culinary Creative . Food Stylist . Recipe Developer . Wellness Advocate 

Cynthia Groseclose lives (best) in the salt air—whether she’s at her home in South Carolina, working in Manhattan, or on frequent stays on the sunny California coast. Her food styling has been featured in national advertising campaigns, James Beard Award-nominated cookbooks, and regional and national editorial publications. Recent clients include Food & Wine, Cooking Light, Caribou Coffee, Garden & Gun and Le Creuset—whom she has style numerous projects and contributed recipes to, including the recently released Le Creuset Cookbook: A Collection of Recipes From Our French Table.

Growing up, Cynthia spent many a Chattanooga afternoon in her family’s kitchens. Her grandmother’s creamed corn and fried chicken were just the beginning. After college, Cynthia earned a Diplôme de Cuisine at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, and worked in Manhattan kitchens before moving to an Atlantic-facing home in Charleston—and to a focus on food styling, content creation for her vibrant beauty food recipe and lifestyle journal and collaborations with both food and wellness lifestyle brands. 

Cynthia is certified in plant-based nutrition through The Center for Nutrition Studies at Cornell University and volunteers with Amor Healing Kitchen, a non-profit using adult mentors and teen volunteers to prepare plant-based meals and deliver them to cancer patients and their caregivers. 

Cynthia loves surfing with her family, and she’s a brand ambassador for the California-based women's surf and lifestyle brand, Carve Designs.
