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. After working for Food & Wine magazine in New York City, she moved to London, where she took up the role of reporter for Imbibe. She is now a full-time freelance journalist.
