Experience

Paige Grandjean is the associate food editor at Food & Wine. Previously, she was a recipe tester and developer for Dotdash Meredith.

After graduating from college with the intent of continuing on to medical school, Paige decided that career path wasn't right for her. She pivoted to a position with the Southern Living Test Kitchen and discovered her talent for developing recipes and sharing them with the readers of more than 15 national publications.

She initially joined Dotdash Meredith as a recipe tester and developer. Her work has appeared in Food & Wine, Real Simple, Southern Living, Health, People, Cooking Light, Coastal Living, Martha Stewart Living, EatingWell, Rachael Ray, Parents Latina, Sunset and Weight Watchers.

In addition, she has created video content styled for digital platforms and has assisted with photo shoots. As a recipe tester, she modified chef recipes to be approachable for the home cook and performed nutritional analysis for recipes. She tested recipes for the Magnolia Table Volumes 2 & 3 cookbooks by Joanna Gaines and the award-winning Soul cookbook by chef Todd Richards.

Paige was named a finalist for the 2021 Eddie and Ozzie Awards for her design work on "LamiNation" in Food & Wine, and she served as a cookbook judge in 2021 for awards issued by the International Association of Culinary Professionals.

This lentil-vegetable soup is packed with kale and tomatoes for a filling, flavorful main dish. If you have it, the Parmesan cheese rind adds nuttiness and gives the broth some body. If you avoid cheese made with rennet, look for vegetarian Parmesan cheese, which is made without it.

Rating: Unrated
New!
These flavorful quinoa cakes can be pan-fried or air-fried for a crispy exterior. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or on top of leafy greens.
Vegan Biscuits
Rating: Unrated
New!
These flaky and tender vegan biscuits are lightly crisp with a golden-brown bottom crust. Homemade vegan buttermilk made with oat milk and lemon juice adds tang, and vegan butter adds that distinctly buttery flavor. They're the perfect vehicle for your favorite jam!
Vegan Quiche
Rating: Unrated
New!
This vegan quiche looks remarkably like the real thing with melty vegan mozzarella cheese and tofu giving the quiche an egglike texture. Tofu is a blank slate, absorbing the savory flavor of nutritional yeast, and turmeric adds color.
This cake pulls two delicious desserts, strawberry shortcake and cheesecake, into one! Shortcake forms the crust that holds a rich and creamy filling piled high with a fresh strawberry topping. This easy cake uses a no-bake filling that sets in the fridge so you can skip the water bath typically used to make cheesecake.
