Kia Mosenthal

Kia Mosenthal is a senior at Brown University, where she enjoys “window dining” at all of the gourmet Providence restaurants that she can never afford.  She worked as an intern for EatingWell Magazine this summer, an experience that inspired her to pursue a lucrative career in food journalism.  She can often be found power walking down Thayer St. (or riding her bike when she becomes too impatient with lollygagging college students).

Tastiest Travel Experience: Chocolate festival in Bologna, Italy.

Best Breakfast: A hot bowl of oatmeal with dried fruit, nuts, and cinnamon…it never gets old!

Favorite healthful food: Butternut squash

Greatest kitchen disaster: Throwing water on a falafel fire—they aren’t joking when they say oil and water do NOT mix.

Ideal Date Meal: Anything he pays for.
