Jessie Price eats two breakfasts a day just to keep her stomach from grumbling which makes her job as EatingWell’s food editor a perfect fit. Jessie is passionate about developing, testing (and tasting!) healthy recipes that excite and inspire EatingWell’s readers. She is putting that passion to work as the author of our cookbook EatingWell Comfort Foods Made Healthy, in which we’ve used our recipe makeover magic to transform even the most decadent comfort foods into healthy, delicious dishes that yield the same well-loved taste.
Jessie grew up in a family fanatical about food and is an avid home cook. She began her professional experience with food during her summers off from Williams College as a cook at restaurants in Colorado and California, including the deluxe Relais and Chateaux, Home Ranch. In 2004, Jessie moved to Vermont from San Francisco and began her full-time career at EatingWell after contributing as a longtime recipe tester and developer.
Jessie lives in Charlotte, Vermont, with her husband and dog. She enjoys growing her own vegetables and pairing local beers with whatever tasty dish she can toss on the deck grill.
