Lauren Miyashiro

Executive Editor at The Kitchn

Alameda, CA

My career would be very different had I not grown up watching Iron Chef Japan and The Barefoot Contessa with my dad. As a college student in New York City, I jumped at the opportunity to intern at Food Network, where I ended up returning shortly after graduation. I later went to culinary school, then moved onto Delish, where I did a little bit of everything when it comes to recipes — assign, develop, test, edit, and style. In 2021, I moved across the country and started at The Kitchn. I began by working to expand our library of classic recipes before managing the food team. Over the last year, we’ve done a ton of behind-the-scenes work to evolve our recipes. They’re not only ridiculously delicious — they’re also smart, fun, gorgeous, and as helpful as possible. I couldn’t be more proud. Now, I help oversee the content across the whole site. I’m just as committed to helping you figure out what to cook for dinner on a night when you just can’t as I am to finding the best store-bought salad dressing or the cleaning hack that makes things 100x easier.
