Kate Malczewski

Kate Malczewski


Kate Malczewski was born and raised in the suburbs of Ohio, which means she grew up calling soda ‘pop’ and considering tater tots a vegetable. She fell hard for drinks writing when living in New York City, working for Food & Wine magazine. Since then, she’s penned articles on everything from cosmetic fat freezing to abstract impasto painting techniques, but is happy to now be fully devoted to booze. She’s been known to carry around kilo tubs of crunchy peanut butter in her purse. Don’t get her started on her obsession with saké. Find her @katemalczewski
